December's Gingerbread House Extravaganza

Better late than never:
Fredricksen's inaugural Gingerbread House Extravaganza was a success! Twenty eight teens came to eat, I mean build gingerbread houses made from the finest icing and candy around! We had teens using their creative efforts to make houses, a village, a train, and our own Fredricksen Library! Two guys combined their materials to make a structure to resemble the library. Can you see the resemblance? If not, they'll be glad to explain every part to you!

Unfortunately several teens had a lesson in physics! Piling a lot of candy on one area may not hold the structure! But, they made the best of it by rebuilding or creating a great candy pile! Overall, it was a fun, tasty afternoon at the library! Look for this fun, festive activity again next December!
