Methacton High School’s Habitat for Humanity club hosted a gingerbread house building event on Dec. 7 where students and their families paid to enjoy constructing and decorating gingerbread houses, drinking hot chocolate, coloring pages, painting ornaments, taking pictures in a winter photo booth, and seeing Santa Claus. The children told Santa what they wanted for Christmas and slid their letters into his mailbox to bring back to the North Pole. Also, the students enjoyed homemade baked treats, the proceeds from which were donated to Habitat for Humanity. While families were getting crafty and enjoying their treats, festive holiday music played in the background. All of the decorations at the event were created by Methacton’s Habitat for Humanity. Some of these decorations included handmade snowflakes, balloon towers and green and white tinsel.
