    This would be a wonderful tradition for me and my daughter. But she’s 3 and don’t know if she’d sit still long enough

      Yes! And it is so fun to make a gingerbread house together – my family used to decorate one every year – such happy holiday memories! Plus you get to play in the museum afterward!

      For sure! And you create such amazing holiday memories! We used to do this when I was little! Plus with this one, the kids get to play in the museum after you’ve finished decorating your house 🙂

    The best part is not having to clean up! (Although I totally would because that’s just me!)

      Yes! My family did this when I was little and I will never forget how much fun we had and how we got to bring it home once it was all decorated! I remember it never tasted very good but we didn’t mind, we just loved that we made it 🙂 This event is extra fun because after you decorate your gingerbread house, the kids get to play in the museum! Hope to see you there 🙂

    How cute! My kids love making gingerbread houses (we even made a haunted gingerbread house for Halloween). It is a big mess, though, and sometimes I don’t get a a great variety of goodies to decorate. I love that the variety and mess would be there, at a museum the really love.

    This year my oldest girl is almost 2 and actually able to enjoy doing things. Putting up the Christmas tree and decorating cookies has been a blast!

      Wonderful to hear! She might enjoy the gingerbread house decorating then! For sure she would enjoy the museum – there are so many places to play, make music and imagine! Our fav spots are Noodle Forest (better for bigger kids) and the reading area (perfect for ALL kids!)
