Give each child a saltine or other square cracker on a paper plate. Provide triangles of sliced cheese to create a roof. Let children add pieces of carrot, cucumber, broccoli, or other small food bits to make windows, doors, chimneys, and trees or bushes for their houses. Finally have everyone enjoy their house snacks.
