Gingerbread men, coming to life. Beautifully iced and decorated confections of sugar cookies on display. The holidays can be a wonderland of cookies. From the old-world traditional cookies, to the dazzling temptations to tickle your taste buds, everyone has a favorite cookie, and a favorite cookie story.
The Puyallup Library is celebrating the season with festivities for National Cookie day, and hope to make it an annual event. The event is a free family program on Wednesday, December 4th at 6:30pm, and there is no registration required. Library volunteers will share their favorite cookie story books, and children will have the opportunity to decorate cookies and design a gingerbread person. This 90 minute event is intended for children aged 3 to 10, and their families, but the joy and excitement of holiday cookies can be enjoyed by both the young and young at heart.
Carol Hopkins, children’s librarian for the Puyallup Library, told us: “The library put together this evening program so that busy families who cannot get to the library during the day or after school, can come enjoy a library program that just so happens to include a sweet treat. The best part of this event is that young people and their families can enjoy great stories, a craft activity, along with a special treat.”
So kids, grab your favorite grown-up, bring a friend or a sibling, and follow the dancing sugar plums to the library!
