I found this recipe/craft on the Mars Bright Ideas site. It's relatively cheap and easy to make. The hardest part is cutting the grahams into triangles! My 7 year old thought it was pretty cool!
- 12 graham crackers (about 1 sleeve)
- 1 (6 1/2 ounce) canwilton's ready-to-decorate frosting
- 20 candies, for decorating
- Take 3 graham cracker sheets (rectangle) and break into squares. Place one square for your base and top with a squirt of frosting. Add another square on top. Repeat 5-6 times for your tree trunk base. Now squirt an X on the top square layer. With your remaining graham sheets, first break into squares, then cut on the diagonal to make several triangles. It is easier to cut with a serrated knife. Take two triangles and place them on your trunk base in the frosting X. Repeat with two more triangles. Use more frosting to line your sides for extra strength (like you would for a gingerbread house). I used 8 triangles total. Line each edge with frosting. Decorate before the frosting sets. A quick and easy thing for kids to make - and eat!
