Building a gingerbread houseBy Anton Barretto, Marissa Lopa

Our friend, an avid DIY enthusiast, Maja Gamboa, shares a fun-filled activity perfect for the holiday season. She decided to temporarily convert her kids’ Little Tykes playhouse into life-size gingerbread house.
Here’s how you can do it. To achieve the “cookie” look, wrap the surface of the house with craft paper. To create a likeness of snow, twist white trash bags and use a glue gun to stick them on the craft paper, outlining the general details of the house, like the windows and doors.
Cut out and stick red duct tape to simulate roof shingles. Create fun patterns and textures by decorating the remaining blank surface of the gingerbread house with colored plastic balls, candy and cookie ornaments.
