Gingerbread House Architects

Winter doesn’t officially start until December 21st, but it’s snowing at Ignite and our Gingerbread houses are covered in snow!

Check out the freshly plowed driveway!

Our architects began their gingerbread house three weeks ago by brainstorming a list of “I Wonder?” questions we need to answer before getting started. What size will it be? What materials will I use? Will it have a chimney big enough for Santa? How many windows and doors? How will I connect the walls and the roof? What tools will I need? The answers to these important questions helped the kids plan, label materials, and draw a model of their house in their engineer journals! Last week, we built the structures and made sure they would provide a sturdy home for the Gingerbread family!
