Every year I buy the gingerbread house kit from Aldi - once I bought the train which was cute too. None of us like gingerbread to eat, we just like to make it look pretty... and then eat the lollies. Surprisingly I think they look pretty different each year. This red and green one from a few years ago is a favourite.
We made this one last weekend.
I printed some cardstock gingerbread houses from this blog. They are absolutely adorable! If you want a super quick and easy craft to do with kids, this is it! Just cut, fold and glue-stick. They would be cute with some glitter added too... in fact... I only just thought of that, so I might go and do it!
