Keep calm and build gingerbread houses

No building permits required, and you can eat it when you feel like it

Welcome to my house…you can’t get in, but you can eat it.

For the seventh season Ada Public Library hosted gingerbread house building parties. This year’s two-day event attracted nearly 50 home builders, according to Natalie Walton of the library staff.

“We supplied the graham crackers, canned frosting, Christmas candy, chocolate sprinkles and shredded coconut for the snow effect,” She said, adding that there’s not much direction required once all the supplies are in front of you.

Over the seasons, the project has attracted infants to seniors. And, lots of families have joined in the construction project.
