Make a batch of Royal Icing.

Lay 2 longer crackers (2"x4") down parallel to each other with 2 smaller cracker (2"x2") between at each end. These will become the walls.

Pipe a thick line of icing along the short (2") sides of the longer walls. Attach the smaller walls to the longer walls to form the house walls. (Note the Icing is the glue).

Let dry about 1 hour.

Lay 2 long crackers (2"x4") beside each other near the house walls.

Pipe a line thick of icing along the top edge of the house walls above.

Pipe a thick line of icing along the long edge of one cracker. Attach the other cracker to form a V for the roof and place on the house walls. (Note this is the hardest part. you might have to hold in place for a minute or 2.

Let dry overnight.

Aside Note: Let kids create their own House Patterns might have some very interesting houses.
