Gingerbread house with candy canes

In the story of Hansel & Gretel, the children find a beautiful gingerbread house in the forest!

About the middle of the day they saw a beautiful snow-white bird sitting on a bough, which sang so sweetly that they stood still and listened to it. It soon left off and, spreading its wings, flew away. They followed it until it arrived at a cottage, upon the roof of which it perched; and when they went close up to it they saw that the cottage was made of bread and cakes, and the window-panes were of clear sugar.

“We will go in there,” said Hansel, “and have a glorious feast. I will eat a piece of the roof, and you can eat the window. Will they not be sweet?”

This cute little gingerbread house has walls and a roof — plus candy canes and lollipops and peppermints — all ready for you to color in. (Click on the image below to get a larger printable version.)
