11 Seats available

Instructor: The CCKC Merry Elves
Location: The Culinary Center of Kansas City

The holidays just aren’t complete without a visit to the most fabulous Gingerbread House Party in town.  The Merry Elves of The Culinary Center of Kansas City invite all you 'kids' – young (ages 5+) and older (ahem!) – to get together for an old-fashioned, pre-holiday festivity complete with a roaring fire, holiday music and a steaming cup of cocoa!

There is no better way to celebrate the holidays than by building a REAL Gingerbread House to admire (and nibble on) at the peak of the holiday season! We’ll show you how to do it and have the “building materials” ready! Then all you do is choose from a huge variety of edible decorations and let your imagination run wild. (Half the fun is watching the kids choose their decorations from our Candyland Island!) We’ll also have Santa’s Magic Royal Icing ready to squeeeeze!

Space is limited, so reserve early and bring a camera… this family-friendly holiday event is sure to sell out fast!

We Require A Waiver Signed By Parent/Legal Guardian:  Prior to admittance to this class, we require a waiver to be signed by a parent or legal guardian.   This waiver requests a phone number where you can be reached during the class if necessary and names of any additional people who are authorized to pick up the child after class.  We encourage you to print off a copy of this Waiver, sign it and either 1) scan and email it to lori@kcculinary.com or 2) bring/send it to class with your student.  Without an appropriately signed Waiver your child will not be allowed to attend class.  We are sorry but we cannot make any exceptions to this rule.  If someone other than the parent drops off your child, they will need evidence that they have the legal authority to sign a Waiver on behalf of your child at that time.  [Click here to download the Waiver]

What To Wear To Class:  For safety reasons, we also recommend that students wear close-toed shoes, long pants and have long hair pulled back.

If Your Child Plans To Attend Class With Someone Else, please add their name(s) to the ‘Comments’ section of your online registration so that we can seat you together; otherwise we cannot ensure that you will be seated together for the class. If you register for multiple students at one time, that registration will prompt you to supply the names of all students you are registering and we will know to seat you together. 

Only Registered Students Will Be Allowed In The Classroom During Class:  This is so your child will have the best possible experience and the instructors have their full attention.  Parents should plan to pick up their students at the end of the advertised hours for their class.

Important Information Regarding Children With Special Needs:  Our cooking instructors are skilled in teaching culinary education at an age appropriate level.  Several of our instructors even have early childhood and teaching background and certification.  However, we are not equipped to work with, nor are these classes designed for, children who may have special needs, issues with focus, or difficulty with sitting still to listen and concentrate on the instructor or issues with relating to other students in a classroom setting.  When we encounter a student who requires significant special attention, the experience for the other students suffers.  While our class and cooking camps are well staffed, we just don’t have the staff to be able to allocate someone to work directly with your child for the entire class.  Should we identify a situation where we believe a student falls within one or more of these categories, we will be contacting you to pick up your students.  Unfortunately, we will not be able to issue a refund for all or any part of the class or camp fees.   Please feel free to call us to discuss any questions or concerns that you feel should be discussed in advance of your child’s class.  Please be aware of our 5-day cancellation policy.
