Tips For Coloring Gingerbread Houses

What colors should I use for a gingerbread house coloring page?

Traditionally, gingerbread houses are brown, as they’re made of gingerbread. However, the decorations can vary widely. You might use red or green for holiday-themed icing, candy cane stripes or evergreen tree decorations, or use an array of colors for a candy-themed house with gumdrop decorations and a rainbow swirl lollipop path. The sky is really the limit.

How can I add more detail and realism to my gingerbread house coloring?

For a more realistic look, use shading to highlight the depth of the gingerbread house’s features, including the eaves, doorway, and windows. You can also add texture to the frosting or icing by using small strokes or dots, and the candy decorations using bright colors and varied stroke directions.

What are the key features to consider when coloring a gingerbread house?

When coloring a gingerbread house, consider how the house is constructed with gingerbread walls, roof, and possibly a chimney. The house is traditionally decorated with frosting or icing and colorful candies, which may create the outlines of windows and doors, and line the roof edges. Brightly colored hard candies often adorn the rooftop, and soft gumdrop type candies often line the sides of the house.

What are some interesting facts about gingerbread houses?

Gingerbread houses originate from Germany and became particularly popular after the Brothers Grimm fairy tale “Hansel and Gretel” was published. In the story, the children discover a house made entirely of sweets in the forest. This led to the tradition of making and decorating biscuit-based houses at Christmas time.
