Ginger Bread House Competition

for 6th graders

When: Tuesday, December 23rd (Early out dismissal at 1:30 p.m.)

You will pick a partner or a group of 3 or 4 to construct your own ginger bread house. You can choose anyone in the 6th grade to be with. We will have lunch from 11-11:30 a.m. and then you will start to work on your ginger bread house in either Mr. Jackson, Mrs. Swanson, or Mrs. TerHark's room. Remember to choose someone who you know will be here and who you can work with. We will have celebrity judges come in at 1:00 p.m. to judge the ginger bread houses, so you will need to clean up your working area prior to that.

More Information:

We are asking every group to bring 1 box of graham crackers, and any other decorative items, such as: sprinkles, red hots, gum drops, little candy canes. Bring what you can and remember you can bring things from home. The deadline for bringing items is Thursday, December 18th. Cardboard for the base, frosting, wax paper, bowls, and knives will be supplied for you. If there is something "special" your group would like to bring for your ginger bread house that is up to you. You can do any research or try to find any tips to help you. Good luck and may the best ginger bread house makers wins:)
