Young Architects Create Gingerbread Houses

Young Architects Create Gingerbread Houses

COOPERSVILLE MI ~ The Award winning "Roadtrips Before Bedtime" program which is designed to bring families together for fun and educational activities held their annual Christmas outing this past Saturday. Gingerbread Magic was in the air as seventy families gathered at Coopersville's East Elementary  to build Gingerbread creations!

Moms, dads, grandmas and grandpas worked with eager preschoolers through fifth graders to build some amazing Gingerbread homes, igloos, airplanes and more! By the end of the afternoon, over a 100 pounds of frosting (donated by Sandy's Donut shop in Grand Rapids) was used. Enough candy to fill Santa's Sleigh and boxes and boxes of graham crackers marched out of the lunchroom with some of the happiest children in town!
