The beloved winter tradition returns! 

During Thinkery’s Gingerbread Workshops, creative families use fresh gingerbread and sweet treats to build gingerbread houses in a fun and festive atmosphere. Build one house together as a group or let each family member create their own gingerbread masterpiece!

From tots to teens and all ages in-between, you’ll find a workshop that’s right for your family!  Each Gingerbread House Kit includes all the supplies you’ll need—fresh gingerbread from La Mexicana Bakery, an assortment of candies and plenty of icing. After the workshop, participants are welcome to explore Thinkery while their house dries in the Gingerbread Village.

With each of these amazing workshops, you’ll be building much more than a gingerbread house–you’ll be building holiday memories for the whole family!  (But also gingerbread houses. Which are awesome!)
