ATHENS — Families are invited to the Athens Cultural Center, 24 Second St., on Saturday, Dec. 7, from 10:30-noon for a free workshop to create holiday cottages.
These cottages are so easy and fun to make. Older children can do it on their own but parents will need to accompany children younger than seven and will enjoy this activity as well.
To make it easy participants will start with a milk carton, put royal icing on all sides so the graham crackers will stick. The roof is where some children will need a little help. Next comes the creative part — each child will decorate their cottage using miniature marshmallows and a variety of holiday candies.
The group will create a Christmas Village using the cottages, which will be displayed for all to see during the annual Victorian Stroll, which takes place on Saturday, Dec. 14. Prizes will be awarded on that day and cottages can be picked up after the stroll.
