I did a little research into gingerbread houses in preparation for this announcement, and I know this is a little off-topic but I have to ask. Don't you find it odd that Hansel and Gretal, the horrifying Brothers Grimm tale about starving, neglected children, is credited for popularizing gingerbread houses? What a nice thought to have in our heads as we build candy covered houses with our kids this holiday season, right? Anyway....
Sweet Rexie’s, the spectacular candy store in South Norwalk, is having Decorate Your Own Gingerbread House events on the following dates and I for one think it sounds like a great, creative indoor activity for little ones.
Sunday, November 30th 1-4 pm
Wednesday, December 3rd 2-6 pm
Friday, December 5th 4-8 pm
Thursday, December 11th 2-6 pm
Friday, December 12th 4-8 pm
You can come to decorate your house anytime during the posted times, however reservations must be made in advance to enable them to have enough houses ready for all participants.
The cost is $15.00 per house and each house comes fully assembled and ready to be decorated. Sweet Rexies provides all the icing and candy you need.
Please call the store to reserve your place 230-853-2513 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
