Science of Gingerbread at the Discovery Science Center and Giveaway

The holidays are in full swing and there is nothing quite like making a gingerbread house during the holidays. One of our favorite holiday traditions is making  and decorating a gingerbread house  with whatever we can find in our home  that is edible . We buy our kit  from Costco or Michael’s and love coming up with a wacky creation.

The Discovery Science Center knows how much fun building  a Gingerbread house can be and has created a fun exhibit called The Science of Gingerbread. The exhibit takes you inside the kitchen and be able to explore the science at work of making a gingerbread house.

There are also many fun holiday happenings at the Discovery Science Center including photos with Santa, a stage show, Gingerbread house workshops, cookie decorating and an award winning gingerbread display, which includes an entry for me. My gingerbread home is far from spectacular or award winning but it sure was fun to make.

The Science of Gingerbread will be at the Discovery Science Center until January 2nd.

Make sure to take advantage and use this $5 off coupon on a super ticket.

It’s giveaway time! We are giving away a family four pack of tickets to the Discovery Science Center. All you have to do is leave a comment on why you would like to win and you are automatically entered! You have until Sunday December 5th  to enter. Winner will be chosen at random. Good luck!

  3. Elizabeth says:

    I have always wanted to take the kids to the Science of Gingerbread exhibit, but it always gets so crazy around the holidays that we seem to not make the time to go. So, maybe this might be the year for us to go if we win. I am keeping my fingers crossed 🙂
