Kindergartners build homes for the holidays

Posted on December 16, 2016 by From Staff Reports

Young engineers at Gulf Breeze Elementary School put their building skills to the test last Friday morning inside the school’s cafeteria where they hand-constructed their own gingerbread houses.
Every year, the school hosts the Gingerbread House-building event for the kindergartners where they are given a variety of construction materials to choose from: pretzels, M & Ms, icing and Hershey Kisses, just to name a few.
Parents and teachers donated the building supplies to the children, and each classroom had a different set of construction materials to choose from.
