Winter Holiday Event: Decorating Gingerbread Houses


A Winter Holiday Event: Decorating Gingerbread Houses

On Friday, December 8th, Interns and Peer Mentors took a break from demands of work and exams to share holiday music and cheer on this afternoon of teambuilding and craft-making. Teams of architects and master decorators turned gingerbread cookies into doors and chimneys, applied red and green color frosting, gum drops and peppermints on rooftops, and found the perfect spots for trees and their gingerbread family.

Each team’s hard efforts paid off, in the end each house became a distinct masterpiece resulting in satisfaction, smiles, and fond memories for everyone!
