"Psalm 127:1-Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it..."
Teach the kids that the Lord needs to be a part of everything in their life & every decision they make. They don't need to leave him out. The Lord say's that everything you try to do, or build will be in vain if you don't have him in your life. Talk to him and allow him to guide you in all things.
I made this Gingerbread House a couple of years ago and it was a lot of fun. You can always leave stuff out if you don't have all the ingredients. Or if you want you can make it even BIGGER!
An idea for your kids at church would be to have them make Church House's and make the little gingerbread boys as people. You can put the boy gingerbread's in ties and the girls in dresses. You can have a Gingerbread Church House decorating party at church. Serve the kids Hot Chocolate to go with it.
You could teach them about the scripture in "Psalm 127:1-Except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it..."

then you can add a front porch by using a long graham cracker and two
small tiny ones, and a triangle cut piece. Ice those down. Use candy
canes to hold the front porch up. Make sure you put a jelly lifesaver at
the bottom to put your candy canes in. It will help hold the front
