Kids in the Kitchen: Gingerbread Cookie Class (Sold Out)
In this class for kids, we will roll up our sleeves and create beautiful, deliciously edible art. Kids will first master how to read a recipe and measure ingredients, then go on mix, roll, and cut the gingerbread cookie dough. While the cookies bake and cool we will read a holiday story. After the cookies have cooled, we will use a variety of holiday-inspired food items to decorate them. Kids can take home their special cookies and share them with their families!
This class is great for kids 6 and up. Adults are welcome to stay, or they can enjoy a tour of the Mansion while we work.
Spaces are limited, sign up today!
The cost per child is $20.
Parents’ Admission: Free for Members, regular admission for Non-members.

Although Blithewold is closing to the public this week, it is anything but quiet around the Mansion. We are now preparing to get the Mansion dressed up for Christmas! It is a bit hard to imagine a snowy winter in the midst of this crisp fall weather, but our decorating volunteers have been prepping and […]
Moving into fall
(Oct 10, '14)
It was chilly this morning. No frost yet (perish the thought — our average first frost date falls in early November) but night temperatures in the forties are definitely giving us a taste of what’s to come along with a chance to acclimatize, and a good reason to pull sweaters out of summer storage.
