This How to Draw a Gingerbread House tutorial keeps things simple, but includes just a few extra touches to make the house look a bit more real. An added side gives it some depth, and a little man and candy in the yard make for some extra color too.

When it comes to coloring your drawing, here’s a tip that will keep your student’s snow looking white and fresh. All they have to remember is NOT draw the little snow circles first with a black marker. They need to stop when they’re done tracing the house and candy and draw the snow circles with the sky blue crayon or marker instead. When they color in the background they will have some very pretty and soft looking snow without any black outlines. It makes for a much lighter and more delicate looking sky.

Also, older students might also enjoy including a few shadows as shown in the sample above. It only takes a bit of gray to make the shapes really stand out in the white snow.

    Materials

    • Drawing Paper. This is the good stuff you can buy in bulk for a good price.
    • Pencils. I like how this brand always makes nice dark lines.
    • Black Marker. A permanent marker will give you a dark black color.
    • Crayons. The larger packs are nice for more color choices.
    • Note: All of the above are Amazon affiliate links.
