2. Color the templates.

Kids can color the templates however they’d like!

We used a light brown for the gingerbread color (to match a homemade gingerbread house) but you can also color them in any color to make them Christmas houses.

3. Cut out the template.

You will also need to cut a little extra slit on the sides of the roof so you can fold this part down completely.
