It’s that time of year again, Jack the Gingerbread Man is ready for a new home. So once again, we are hosting our gingerbread house building event on Saturday December 9th at our offices at 911 Rogers St., Downers Grove. Studio21 Architects provides the kids with various shapes of foam blocks, graham crackers for siding, frosting for cement and a variety of candy trimmings. Those who participate are often very creative, however what we cherish most about this event is that the children put us in the holiday spirit.
The event is open to children 2 – 12 and must be accompanied by an adult. If you are interested, register early as we will likely reach our maximum capacity quickly. There are hourly time slots starting at 9:00 with the last one for the day at 2:00.
The event is free to attend, however, we do request a donation of either an unopened toy for Toys for Tots or a cash donation to The Ronald McDonald House in Winfield, IL. Any cash donations will be matched by Studio21 Architects.
Our talented staff will be on hand to assist these future architects and builders with their designs. All of the completed Gingerbread Homes will be photographed and posted on Facebook, with the winning design given a gift certificate to Toys”R”Us.
