Pick #3: Gingerbread Farmer Decorating at Appleton Farms

Join us for some holiday fun on the farm and learn about the origin of this favorite Scandinavian tradition. We’ll start by decorating some delicious gingerbread farmers and cows with a variety of candy and homemade icing. After our creations are complete we’ll snuggle in for some entertaining gingerbread facts and read Hansel & Gretel, the story which spurred the popularity of gingerbread houses. Finish the experience with a traditional German holiday craft to decorate your own home with!

Senior students are raising money by being able to take pictures with Santa at lunch yesterday and today. Taking a picture with Santa is a great way for the high school to get into Christmas spirit and to raise money for the senior class!
