Gingerbread House Kit

You can purchase Gingerbread House kits at most craft stores, as well as Target and WalMart. There are even kits that offer the ability to create your own village. The only thing I might add to the kit is some edible snow or edible grass to cover the base that is used to build the house onto.

Create Your Own Decorations

Even though most kits come with the candy decorations, you might want to add some personal touches to your Gingerbread House. But miniature candies can be hard to find, especially if you want to use something other than M&Ms, like Miniature gumdrops, Neccos, Nonpareils. So click on the candies to find some resources.

And if you are truly adventurous, or just up to the challenge, you can create your home from scratch. Bake your own gingerbread, make your own shapes, and create your own decorations.
