Families Make It! Gingerbread Salt Dough
Every year when I was a kid, we tried (keyword: TRIED) to make a gingerbread house. Every year we ended up hot-gluing that thing together. SO. This year, I'm skipping the royal icing and jumping right to hot glue with this Gingerbread Salt Dough House, decorated with caulk and polymer clay candy!

If you want to make this Gingerbread Salt Dough for a Gingerbread House or salt down ornaments, I strongly recommend! It smells heavenly in the oven!
If you want to try this very intense three story gingerbread house, here is the template! Just make sure you bake your pieces long enough in the oven so they are strong enough to hold the weight of the upper layers.
If you're not feeling up to a project of this magnitude, don't worry, I still have you and your gingerbread house dreams covered! Jump over the kids page and print out a paper version you and your family can color, cut out, and glue together!
