Gingerbread House Festivities!

Club members were excited to participate in the Gingerbread House Activity while gearing up for the Holiday Season. The children were given graham crackers, frosting, candy, and marshmallows. With their imagination and creativity, they build some incredible "houses," tents, tiny homes and buildings. Afterwards, they had more fun eating their creations. It was a gift to observe their joy!
