Not only have the students been listening to different versions of the Gingerbread Man, but they have been studying architecture in Art Class. Students created their very own gingerbread house with the help of Mrs. Guay, our art instructor.
Mrs. Guay and I thought it would be incredible for the students to see a large-scale gingerbread house in person. A special thank you to the Four Seasons Biltmore for making this happen for us! We hopped on the bus and headed over to see the magic.
The theme for the Biltmore’s gingerbread house this year was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
The children were amazed at the amount of detail!
We even had a chance to speak with the head baker who designed the gingerbread house!
This is what was needed to create the gingerbread masterpiece!
Then, we went on a tour of the kitchen where all the baked goods for the hotel are made. The highlight of the kitchen tour was of course…

Next, students were taken to the dining room and given hot chocolate and a giant chocolate chip cookie! Who could ask for anything more?!
I was very proud to hear lots of “pleases” and “thank you’s.”
The trip ended with each student choosing a Beanie Boo keychain. This was definitely a trip to remember. Thank you Four Seasons Biltmore for giving such a special holiday experience.
