This past Saturday we had over thirty five children come to the library with their friends and family to make gingerbread houses! Each child got their own gingerbread house kit which came with the house pieces, icing, and decorative candy.
First, everyone used the icing to “glue” their house pieces together, which was a lot of hard work since sometimes they didn’t stick and fell down. It took a lot of icing and some help from others, but everyone got their houses up and ready to decorate!
Once the houses were put together, children applied icing to the outside of the houses and stuck candy to them to decorate. Everyone did a really amazing job and we had some really beautiful houses when we were all done! Check out the pictures below and see what’s happening next at the library here!
