3rd Annual Gingerbread House Decorating Workshop and Contest

It is the sweetest moment of the year and Kids English Club® & IberEnglish revive our workshop to decorate gingerbread houses once again. This Christmas tradition was brought to the US by German immigrants around the 17th century. Since then, popular contests have been held across the country, and among communities, to decorate (and then eat) these appetizing little houses!In our workshop, each child will decorate their own little house to take home. The workshop includes the house and everything needed to create an edible masterpiece. A 100% immersion activity in English.

This year there will be two different workshops:

- Kids Workshop for 4-8 years: In this workshop each child will decorate their own mini house to take home. The workshop includes a photocall, the gingerbread house and everything you need to decorate your work of edible art, songs and storytelling. All participants will receive a participation gift.- Tweens contest for 9-11 years: In this workshop and contest, focused on STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), each participant will design, draw and finally decorate their gingerbread house to take home. Three winners will be chosen by a panel of judges. The prizes, awarded at random, include a tapas cookbook in English aimed at teens donated by Ave Munde, a cake / cupcake decorating workshop donated by Tasty Cakes Madrid, and a half-day art course donated by Claire Makes Things. This workshop and contest includes a photocall, the gingerbread house and everything needed to create an edible work of art.- Secondary education students will have the opportunity to participate in our program as junior counselors, where they will assist the staff in conducting workshops. This leadership development activity is conducted entirely in English. In return for their role as youth counselors, they will take home a gingerbread house kit that they can decorate at home with their family and will be exempt from paying the entrance fee.We appreciate the generosity of this year's prize sponsors: Ave Munde, Tasty Cakes Madrid and Claire Makes Things.
