There is just something about this season that makes me so happy inside. One of my favorite parts of the Christmas season is all of the fun traditions and activities my families does. One of our yearly traditions is making gingerbread houses.

Now that I’m older, I have a lot of fun making elaborate gingerbread houses, but I remember getting so frustrated trying to assemble them when I was younger. If that’s the case for you (or someone you know), then this project is perfect for you!

Introducing printable 3D Christmas houses! All you need to make these is some paper, scissors, tape, and coloring utensils. There is no need to worry about these getting stale or going bad because they are made out of paper. You also won’t have to worry about trusting icing that can’t hold the house together.

My two little sisters made these Christmas houses with me and they LOVED it. In fact, my littlest sister was jumping for joy when I was “making the house 3D”. They had so much fun coloring in the houses too.

These houses would be the perfect activity for a snow day, preschool activity, or even just a fun family Christmas activity.
