Directions:
  1. Lay out the newspaper or parchment paper on a flat surface
  2. Break whole graham crackers in half. Each house requires 3 whole crackers, broken into 6 halves
  3. Use the icing as glue to stick the "walls" to the floor and set aside. Glue two halves for the roof together and set aside. As soon as the walls and roof dry separately (this took us about an hour!), glue roof onto walls. Let dry. This step can be done in advance
  4. Decorate to your hearts desire!

What you'll need:
  • Cardboard egg carton
  • Pompoms (mini and regular sized)
  • Googly eyes
  • Black card stock
  • White bumpy pipe cleaners
  • Scissors
  • Glue
Instructions:
  1. Cut out one of the center peaks of the cardboard egg carton and one of the egg "cups". Trim around the edges of the "cup" so it's even
  2. Cut off two bumpy parts of the pipe cleaner, leaving a little of the stem
  3. Twist the two stem parts of the pipe cleaners together
  4. Place the twisted stem into the whole on top of the peak of the egg carton. If there isn't a whole, make one with scissors.
  5. Cut  three 1/8" x 1 long strips of black card stock
  6. Glue strips to the cardboard egg carton so they make a fan shape. These will be the whiskers!
  7. Glue a mini pompom in the center of the whiskers for the nose. Glue googly eyes above.
