I used a grass tip with green frosting for almost all of the frosting decoration. Of course, a bunny is attracted to grass – right?!

Here’s what you’ll need for an Easter Graham Cracker House:

  • 4 long graham cracker pieces
  • 3 graham cracker halves or squares (divided)
  • Low temp glue gun and glue sticks
  • *if you want an edible house – (see note below)
  • 1/2 cup of Green frosting – if you can’t find it already made use vanilla and green food coloring to make your own
  • 1/4 cup of Pink or another pastel frosting – if you can’t find it already made use vanilla and red food coloring to make pink
  • 2-3 Tbsp. of powdered sugar
  • Orange jellybeans for carrots
  • Other candies that are Easter-related – I used, candy eggs, flower sprinkles (I found them at Michael’s Craft Store), jellybeans, pastel M&Ms
  • 1 regular sized marshmallow
  • 2 mini marshmallows
  • scissors
  • serrated knife for the triangle graham cracker pieces
  • paper plate
  • piping bag
  • grass tip 

*If you prefer to make this house edible, then you’ll want to omit the glue and use frosting mixed with powdered sugar instead. Mix in enough powdered sugar to make the frosting thick. It will hold better.
