Ginger Bag Houses!

We made these awesome Ginger Bag Houses out of lunch bags! 

This was a super-fun S.T.E.A.M. project. It was all about planning, designing, and constructing (that's engineering) and, of course, ART! 

First we selected our elemental designs:  doors, windows, trees, and candies. Then we colored the items, cut them out, and glued them to the lunch bag house. 

Here are our printable house details (pdf) such as windows, doors, chimneys, and roofs. Just print, and choose your favorites! Next, you'll need these printable candies and cookies (pdf) to decorate your Ginger Bag House. Of course, you can draw your own, too. 

We stuffed the bag with newspaper and stapled the roof to the top.  Finally, we added thick white tempera paint for the look of icing or snow.

Ginger Bag Houses are even more fun to make with your grandma!
