We are doing this on Saturday. The kids can't wait:)
The milk cartons makes it easy enough that even our 3 year old didn't have a problem. Everyone brought toppings to share and you certainly don't need all the choices we offered, we were a bit excessive;).
What you'll need:
Small milk cartons
Canned Frosting~it seems to hold up better for building
Random toppings, we had
Mini Candy Canes
M&Ms~big and mini
Mike and Ikes
Put a blob of frosting on the bottom of the milk carton and anchor it to a plate. Make sure you write the name of the child on the bottom of the plate so everyone gets theirs when they leave.
Each child gets 6 graham cracker halves. Frost back of graham cracker and stick to side of carton. Two on the top to make the roof. Use a bit of extra frosting for the roof. We also use mini knives, i.e., cheese knives so they are easier for the kids to handle.
Anchor your milk carton. Frost your graham crackers and get started
