I know from experience that favorite characters get the kids more excited about crafts and keep them more involved. We decided to make a gingerbread airplane hangar for some new Disney Planes toys we picked up. I went with a paper gingerbread house because I knew it would be played with quite a bit.
To make a paper gingerbread hangar (or cardboard), start with 2 1/2 circles. I used a large bowl as a template and traced it onto brown 12″x12″ cardstock.
Then you’ll need a strip however wide you want to go all the way around the half circle as the roof. I needed to use 2 pieces to go all the way around. To make sure it was secure I used a hot glue gun.
Do your kids like adding their favorite characters to holiday traditions?
