Day 10: Gingerbread Houses


Is it an activity, a decoration or a yummy Christmas goodie? It’s all of the above and making one is often a family tradition too.

We’re talking about GINGERBREAD HOUSES. Kids love to make them. Adults love to make them. People throw gingerbread house-making parties. There are competitions for building them. A gingerbread house is definitely a Christmas staple.

Your mission: Capture a photo of a gingerbread house.

What do you do if gingerbread houses are NOT a part of your Christmas?

  1. Skip this! If it doesn’t fit for you don’t worry and move on.
  2. Substitute for something that is a part of your Christmas.
  3. Consider: Were gingerbread houses part of your life as a child, do you have an untold childhood story? You don’t need a photo of the actual gingerbread house in order to tell the story. If you don’t have a photo, find a substitute!

Example of things you may substitute:

  • Christmas baking (although we’ll be seeing this very soon!)
  • Your Christmas centerpiece
  • Elf on a Shelf
  • Making paper snowflakes
  • Making Christmas ornaments

Here’s a link with more ideas about scrapbooking GINGERBREAD HOUSES.


Think about Christmas scrapbooking in categories. Most prompts will fit into one, or more, of these four categories.

  1. Activities
  2. Decorating
  3. Food
  4. Traditions

By including scrapbook pages from all four categories you will share a complete view of what your Christmas season looks like.

Now carry on with the hustle and bustle of the Christmas season, the scrapbooking is covered!
