Gingerbread Houses and Beyond: Christmas Candy and Cookie Construction Projects

Candy TrainIf you’re looking for an edible construction project that can multi-task as a gift, then this candy train from Do Better may be just the thing for you, since it relies mostly on colorfully-packaged candy.

Lifesavers, Twix, Hershey’s Kisses, foil-wrapped chocolates- all can be kept in their packages as you make the candy train, leaving your recipient with fresh-tasting and sanitary candy to nibble on later.

So what’s your story? Do you have the BEST gingerbread recipe around, or do you make the most creative Christmas candy construction ever? Share your story, and/or a link to your blog post about it, in the Comments below.

And don’t forget to post photos of your inspired cookie and candy creations in the Crafting a Green World flickr pool!

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.
