Fairy Gingerbread House

Looking for a small gingerbread house that's perfect for children to decorate their own, or for a gingerbread village, or for a children's gingerbread house decorating party, or for special gifts? The Fairy gingerbread house is the house!


I created this child-size gingerbread house 30 years ago for my daughter, so she could have her own special little house to decorate. She's enjoyed the craft ever since!


The approximate footprint/size of this house is 4" wide x 3" deep x 5 1/2" tall.


The Fairy gingerbread house is also the perfect size for special gifts!
