Hansel and Gretel aren’t the only ones enchanted by candy houses! This is the season when the first graders at Verne Critz delight in creating masterpieces during their annual “Candy House” project.

The making of candy houses has been going on for over two decades and remains one of the most popular events of the year.  Family members are invited in to help construct the houses, and young and old alike roll up their sleeves to create residences any miniature-sized being would be proud to live in.  

The event was on December 21st this year.  What a wonderful way to kick off our December break and ensure that “visions of sugar plums dance in their heads”!
