Using a net to build a 3D shape is a great fun and helps develop spatial maths skills.

The instructions are – 

Carefully cut out the house and the roof

Fold along the lines – fold inwards so the lines are hidden on the inside

Decorate the outside of your Gingerbread House – look up gingerbread houses on -line for inspiration- you could use paint, pens, pencil crayons or stickers!

Glue your gingerbread house together using the tabs – do the house first and then add the roof

If you wanted to create a tea light holder you could cut out a window on each side and add a battery operated candle! (no real flames!)
