TSA Gingerbread City: Kids’ Main Street Workshops

This year the Toronto Society of Architects is so excited to be again hosting our second annual Kids’ Main Street workshops as part of the TSA’s Gingerbread City. Kids’ Main Street is a unique program for the youngest designers in the family, inviting children to be a part of Gingerbread City by designing and decorating their very own Main Street façades (architect speak for the front of a building). At the end of each session, participants will have their creations photographed and collaged into our digital Main Street that they can visit online on the TSA’s website (which means they’ll get to keep their creations!).

Kids’ Main Street workshops will be offered at the following times:

10:30 AM – 12:30 PM (Session 1)

1:30 PM – 3:30 PM (Session 2)

4:30 – 6:30 PM (Session 3)

This program should make for a fun and delicious day! And the best part? We clean up all the mess! We hope you’ll join us as the designers of our new Gingerbread City Main Street – spaces are limited so make sure to register soon!

What’s Included? Everything required for the exercise, including the gingerbread template cookie and plenty of decorations.

Age Recommendation: Ideal for kids ages 7-11, but we welcome children of all ages!

Allergies & Food Sensitivities: Although the gingerbread is nut free and we will not use any nuts or nut products, we cannot guarantee that all the candy, decorations, or cookies we will use did not come in contact with nuts or other allergens. We will also have a limited quantity of rice krispie template alternatives to gingerbread as needed. Please let us know upon registration if your child has any allergies or food sensitivities we should be made aware of. 

How long is the activity? While we have scheduled each session for 2 hours, depending on how much finer detail the kids want to put into their creations, they may start wrapping up their pieces closer to about 1.5 hours.
