Holiday treats

Norman Elementary has delicious holiday fun

REED CITY -  – One of the sweetest memories of childhood during the holidays is building a gingerbread house. This tradition continues for kindergarteners at Norman Elementary School.  Brave teachers and parents assisted little hands in frosting the houses made from small milk cartons and graham crackers.  Sugar ice cream cones were transformed into Christmas trees. Next came the best part of making these delicious treats.  There was no shortage of mints, M&Ms, licorice, gumdrops, candy canes or marshmallows to completely decorate the houses and trees. Anyone could see the creative juices flowing as each child created their own unique design. Smiles and laughter filed the room.  For many of these children, this was the first time they had ever made a gingerbread house. Very proud of their work, they all were quick to show off what they had made to their friends and the parents that were helping. Many of the kindergartners went home last week covered in frosting from head to toe, evidence of the wonderful time they had spent getting into the holiday spirit.
