Kit includes locally made gingerbread house for a fun at-home activity. The library and Sunflour bakery have partnered to take family bonding time to the next level. These gingerbread kits include a gingerbread house, plus everything you’ll need to put together and decorate your creation. Each kit comes with extension activities, like gingerbread MadLibs. Due to demand, we are currently limiting kits to one per family. Teens and tweens 10-18 can also join our discord server, where the group will chat while putting together their kits or other other activities together. Kits must be picked up from the library during our regular operating hours, and a staff member will notify you when your kit is ready for pickup. Please keep holiday closures and COVID protocols in mind. Registration is required. Click here to register: https://www.eventbrite.com/preview?eid=129614513499/
