Athens Cultural Center hosts children’s workshop
WHAT: Holiday cottage workshop WHEN: Dec. 3 at 10:30 a.m. WHERE: Athens Cultural Center, 24 Second St., Athens DETAILS: The center hosts a free workshop to create holiday cottages. Older children can do it on their own, but parents will need to accompany children younger than 7. To make it easy, participants will start with a milk carton, put royal icing on all sides so the graham crackers will stick. Next comes the creative part. Each child will decorate their cottage using miniature marshmallows and a wonderful selection of holiday candies. Participants can take their cottage home that day or, if they wish to participate, a Holiday Village will be set up displaying the cottages for all to see during the Victorian Stroll on Dec. 10. Prizes will be awarded on that day and cottages can be picked up after the stroll.
