Throughout December, cooking instructor Maria Springer teaches gingerbread-house-decorating workshops at her home in Phoenix. The classes are open to kids ages 5 to 12 (and their parents). Springer serves tea and teaches children how to create magical gingerbread houses via fun (and sometimes messy) hands-on instruction. For more information about the workshops, visit majaskitchen.com or call 410-561-1157.
