Upside Down #Gingerbreaddsc

I just loved this upside down gingerbread house – the creativity is just amazing!  And this beautiful toy horse was also another favorite of mine:



Upstairs, we built and raced our own Gingerbread Derby Racer. (available weekends only)

Gingerbread Race Cars

Start with graham crackers, straw, some candy and frosting and you have your self an awesome “edible” derby racer.

This, by far was a favorite for the family.  And secretly, I think Dad really got into it, because after each race, he had to make modifications to his car, then re-challenge the kids.

DSC Little Elves

For the littlest of elves, the tinker shop is sure to keep them busy!  Isn’t it adorable – specifically designed for kids age 3 and under.

Experiements DSC

While you’re there, you’ll have an opportunity to meet St. Nick and get adorable family photos with the kiddos (weekends only). Find out the difference between skittles and M&M candy coating as well as learn how to build snowflakes.

Over the weekends through December, check out the following activities:

  • “Holiday Colors & Lights” Stage Show
  • Meet Santa and take your photo with him
  • Build and race your own candy car
  • Decorate holiday cookies and eat them too!

The Science of the Gingerbread exhibit will be at Discovery Science Center now through January 5th.
