Adorable when complete!
We have used these gingerbread houses in our home for the past three Christmas. They have been a hit every time! They do require glue (perhaps glue dots would make it easier, as the foam pieces can slip a bit with the glue). The kids LOVED constructing and decorating the houses. Used with ages 2 (with help) through 7. Would definitely recommend!

Very cute and kids loved it.
Very cute and the kids loved it. My only suggestion would be to make self-sticking accessories instead of glue-on. For classroom situation, glue STICK did not hold well. And liquid glue takes too long to harden.

Overall good product.
Overall good product once it is constructed. It would be better if the pieces were not required to be glued and were made of the sticky materials instead.

This was a very easy exciting craft for the kids. They were so excited to take it home and show it to their parents. It was easy enough that my younger kids could do it while watching and a little help.

Cute, but pieces don't fit well
This craft is really cute, but some of the pieces don't seem to fit well together. We have to keep "repairing" the finished product. We used glue dots and not all of the pieces stayed on the house...we changed the design a little, as the snow on the roof peak was only on one side, and was hard to attach.

School Aged Kids Loved It!
I bought these for our Chamber's Holiday party. I had several different crafts by age range. These were for 8+ years. They were a hit. They are very time consuming, not something to do rushed or with limited time constraints. I had both sizes of glue dots available, but many kids just used glue bottles/sticks too. Many of the kids crafted their own style gingerbread house versus following the instructions and they turned out so cute as well! So happy with this purchase!

Cute but frustrating to assemble
We used these at Day Camp (our theme was Christmas), and while the girls enjoyed putting them together, there were some issues with wall assembly. Several of the girls (9-10) got VERY frustrated, but they did look cute when finished.

needs to be self-adhesive
This is such a cute project and the quality is perfect for an elementary school Christmas craft, but the fact that none of the foam pieces have peel off backing is a bummer. Seems like most foam crafts are self-adhesive, but this one wasn't and we just went through too many glue dots and it was a major pain. I wouldn't recommend it for groups of kids, but I would recommend it for a one-on-one craft at home.

Foam Gingerbread Houses
I bought his product instead of actually making gingerbread houses this year. Last year they went to waste instead of them being eaten. I have children ages 8-16 and all made a house including myself. It was fun and something to do. I tihnk it could give more ideas for other decoration ideas though.
