Gingerbread VillageGingerbread Village guests will receive a gingerbread house kit for each person. Each kit contains precut graham cracker pieces, icing and an array of candy for guests to use as they strategize, engineer, craft and build the ultimate sweet escape. This day is one that children will remember long after the last piece of candy has been plucked off of the rooftops of their gingerbread creations.

Visitors can also shop at the bake sale and this year, there is the option to reserve a room to avoid the hustle and bustle and have a private experience for your party. Two rooms that can accommodate 30 guests each are available for rental. To reserve your private decorating room call 316-660-0600 and ask for Sydney.
