Honey Maid Graham Cracker Houses

Thank you to HONEY MAID Graham Crackers for sponsoring this post.

Put a spin on the Christmas tradition of making gingerbread houses. Make mini graham cracker houses instead. They're fun, snackable, and easy for kids!I’m big on holiday traditions in our household. My childhood memories are packed full of them and I want my kids to grow up experiencing that same kind of fun. One such tradition that I love at Christmas time is the building, eating, and decorating of gingerbread houses. It simply wouldn’t seem like Christmas without this tradition!

Put a spin on the Christmas tradition of making gingerbread houses. Make mini graham cracker houses instead. They're fun, snackable, and easy for kids!My mother always said that I would eat a piece of candy and then decorate with one. Eat and repeat. She would go to Walmart and purchase a variety of my favorite candy for our gingerbread houses. It was like Christmas came early when I’d see those Walmart bags full of candy sitting atop our kitchen counter in mid December each year.

They're fun, snackable, and easy for kids!I enjoy passing down traditions like these to my daughter and she eats it up, literally. I also like to put my own spin on my favorite holiday traditions occasionally. We still shop at Walmart and Walmart.com for candy but instead of making houses of gingerbread, we use HONEY MAID Graham Crackers.

They're fun, snackable, and easy for kids!HONEY MAID Graham Crackers provides wholesome nutrition for my growing toddler and she adores the sweet, delicious taste of these graham crackers. It’s a win-win when it comes to a snack time solution and for simplicity in building candy houses!

Put a spin on the Christmas tradition of making gingerbread houses. Make mini graham cracker houses instead. They're fun, snackable, and easy for kids!I love how easy it is to build graham cracker houses, even for tiny fingers. We like to make several miniature houses so eventually we have a little village of them. We pretend like Sour Patch Kids, which just so happens to be my favorite candy of all time, are real kids and Teddy Grahams are their bear friends. Oh how my daughter loves to play “house” with these candies!

Put a spin on the Christmas tradition of making gingerbread houses. Make mini graham cracker houses instead. They're fun, snackable, and easy for kids!When it comes to decorating graham cracker houses, I like to use a miniature muffin pan to sort and display the candy. Not only does it look cute, but it keeps things organized so my little one can concentrate on her edible art. She’s a lot like me, she believes in the “eat and repeat” method too! A muffin pan allows for easy refills of disappearing candy.

They're fun, snackable, and easy for kids!Along with an assortment of candy, I also provide icing or melted chocolate which is the glue that sticks the candy to the graham cracker houses. My favorite melting chocolate is the Wilton brand which can be found at Walmart. My toddler and I like to pretend like we are putting shingles on the roof as we “glue” candy to the roofs of our graham cracker houses. It’s so much fun!
