Twenty five youngsters started a sugar-filled construction project when they visited Berwyn’s library this past Monday afternoon.
The library was hosting a “Create Your Own Gingerbread House” day. The children visited the library after school Monday to take part in building their own gingerbread houses.
Candy, frosting, cookies , and many other kinds of sweets were on hand for the children to use. It was a messy experience with a yummy outcome for the children.
“I like it because it means it’s Christmas time,” said 7-year-old Mary Catherine Wenzle, “and we get to play with our food.”
The children listened to Christmas music and talked about Frosty the Snowman as they played with candy canes and licked chocolate off their fingers.
It was a hit with the parents
“My daughter did this last year and had so much fun.’ said Mary’s mother, Katherine Wenzle. “As soon as Thanksgiving was over she asked me when she could ‘build her jelly bean house’ again.”
The children ranged in age from 5 to 13 and came with friends and parents.
