I remember looking forward to making cookies with my children every year at Christmas time. It was a huge mess but lots of fun. I thought maybe parents would appreciate making a mess at the library instead of at home.
In years past, at the library, I would have a gingerbread house program for families. This year, we made gingerbread people instead. I read some stories and then everyone made outlines of their children on brown wrapping paper. The children and parents decorated their ginger kids and then we decorated cookies for everyone to take home.
