To kick off the Christmas Season, we have a Gingerbread Party on the last Saturday in November. Families can spend time together at all the different activities and they can build a Gingerbread House together.
A team of people spend time working on decorations for the Gingerbread party. We keep the budget as low as possible so most things are made from cardboard that is painted.
We have several stations that families can go to
Gingerbread Station – all the ingredients needed to build a Gingerbread House. The house pieces are ready to be assembled. The icing is ready to go in a piping bag & there are 6-8 kinds of candies on each table for them to decorate their house with.
Craft Station – a fun foam gingerbread man ready to decorate. Glue & decorations ready to go.
Coloring Station – several options of Gingerbread people & houses ready for coloring.
Bounce House – to burn off some of that sugar.
Photo Booth – a professional photographer takes photos of families. They are emailed a link where they can download their pics.
Snack Station – home made sweet treats to have a little snack so they don’t eat all the candy before it gets on the Gingerbread House.
Take Home Bag – info about our upcoming Christmas Events at our church, Christmas stickers & coloring sheets.
The Gingerbread Party is for church families & for families from the community. It’s a great opportunity for church families to invite non-church friends.
