Nothing screams the Holidays like a sweet gingerbread concoction (is it a house, a rocket ship?) presented by your glowing four-year-old, and Gingerbread Builders is the ideal place to create it (and leave the clean-up behind). From the minute you walk into this colorful shop the smell of delicious homemade gingerbread and candy envelopes you – it’s almost impossible not to get into the Christmas spirit.
Can you say kid in a candy store? Shelf after shelf of candy, row after row of gingerbread and special treats of every kind. Think gumdrops, chocolate kisses, candy canes, and more sweets than Hansel & Gretel could ever imagine.
Building your gingerbread house is simple. Pick your desired size of pre-made gingerbread house (small, medium or large), your bag of candy, your royal icing and away you go. Keep it simple or get elaborate by upgrading your candy selection with some truly creative options such as Rice Krispy™ Treat cars or cornflake bushes. Walk away the proud owner of a beautiful hand-crafted gingerbread house, but leave all the sticky mess behind.
Gingerbread Builders is an experience for all ages, but if your toddler or baby finds it challenging to sit still, simply tuck him away in the corner play space strategically filled with a nice selection of toys, books and building blocks. Perfect for a preschool play date, a birthday party, or even a fun twist on a mom’s night out (you supply the wine and food and they supply the rest). Reservations are accepted and encouraged for both large and small groups.
Open everyday from 9am-8pm, we highly recommend a post-meal visit, as stealth candy consumption is highly probable (by both child and parent!). Doors close for the season on December 31 so hurry in.
PS – Join Red Tricycle at Gingerbread Builders for our December play date on December 17. Space is limited so please RSVP here. Early birds will be rewarded with free goodies!
