With family in and out for the holidays I wanted to come up with a way to get kids of multiple ages interested in some holiday crafts and/or activities.
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.
Cut a door (or doors) into one of the 1/2 circles.
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.
Glue on the back (the 2nd 1/2 circle).
Now the kids can have fun glueing, drawing or painting on “candy”.
And the best part, of course, is playing with your new holiday playset!
So much fun and a cute decoration!
Do your kids like adding their favorite characters to holiday traditions?
You are SO CRAFTY! This is such fun, and a fantastic option for kids who have Celiac Disease and can’t even touch gluten, like my youngest son! I have to go to Walmart this afternoon, so I will have to check these Rollback items out for sure. #client
Yes! We’re gluten free here too and making a gf gingerbread (that no one will eat anyway) can take forever!
Super cute! My daughter would love this. #client
