Notes about Products for Parents, Teachers and Librarians

Parents, Teachers, and Librarians will find directions how to give gingerbread housemaking parties and workshops in the Gingerbread Ideas book.  Successful workshops have been given in schools, libraries, churches and homes.  Holiday themes such as Christmas, Hanukkah, Valentines Day, Easter, and Halloween can be used for these workshops.

Libraries are places where people go for resources to learn about "everything under the sun"!  And this is also true of learning how to make gingerbread houses. 

Libraries are also great gathering places for gingerbread house making  workshops and demonstrations. These can be fund raisers providing libraries' patrons an opportunity to make a gingerbread house. By providing the supplies and a place to assemble cookie cottages or gingerbread houses with other families for help and inspiration, the library may bring in new members from their community. 

The Gingerbread Lady's book, Gingerbread Ideas, her new DVD, Gingerbread Housemaking, and children’s video can be a  valuable asset for your workshops. The book can help in the planning of workshops and programs and will be borrowed by patrons researching gingerbread house making. The appropriate programs from the DVD can be shown before workshops.
