Harrison County Public Library Palmyra Branch employee Nikki Essary and her family presented The Gingerbread Man Puppet Show at the Harrison County Boys & Girls Club. Many puppet characters chased the runaway “naughty” cookie hoping to be the one to get a bite. After the puppet show, children visited fun stations where they could make a puppet, decorate a cookie and decorate a gingerbread playhouse.
HCPL Corydon Youth Services Assistant Ann Allen helped children decorate and make a gingerbread man marionette puppet. It was amazing to see all the gingerbread puppets dancing and running away!
R.S.V.P. volunteer Charlotte Adams helped children decorate and cut out paper candies to decorate the gingerbread house. The children enjoyed playing in the house as much as decorating it! Visit the Corydon Branch to add more decorations to the house or to play and read in the house.
Teen volunteer Zada Taul and Diana Lasky of HCPL monitored the cookie decorating stations where children were very creative with their frosting and candies. The cookies were delicious however, not many cookies made it out the door. It was a fun-filled day to kick off the holiday season.
