Story Teller Day

Today we host the annual Storytelling Day, so named because this is where we pull out the games and activities for families to interact with each other through imagination and laughter. We’ve been doing this event for nearly 8 years now. Each year we add different games and events to the schedule of events but one game in particular has taken the front stage. A small independent story telling game by the name of “The Secret Lives of Gingerbread Men.”

This game is unique in that every player builds their character for the group story out of cookies and candy. The character is of course a cookie and the decorations given to the cookie determines the character’s abilities. These abilities are then used to play out a story of the Christmas cookies and their quest to make it to Santa’s sleigh where they will be whisked away to the North Pole. But along the way there are a lot of pit falls for the tiny Gingerbread: cats, the dark place behind the fridge, the runaway train under the tree… so many things can happen on such a dangerous quest.

Tables for The Secret Lives of Gingerbread MenĀ start at 10, 11, 12, 1 and 3. Space is limited and there is a cost of $6 for this event only. Every thing else happening is free.

We’ve also got other planned events but the most important one is a visit from Santa himself. The magic Santa will arrive at 11am and be with us until 1pm. Come get your photos taken and have some cookies and beverages while you play some games and help us assemble our Christmas puzzle.

Oh! And every family that attends, gets to put their names in the drawing to win a Ravensburger Advent Calendar or the Christmas puzzle. So it’s worth it drop by even just to say hi! See you then!
