Treat your Kids to Gingerbread House Making this Christmas - Eichardt's Grille

Treat your Kids to Gingerbread House Making this Christmas

Decorating gingerbread houses is a growing kiwi tradition and a much-anticipated event for families at Christmas time. 

From 11am on Sunday 20th December, We warmly invite the younger gourmets to join us on a fun-filled day of gingerbread making. Will Eaglesfield, our talented executive chef, will be assisting the children in the creation and decoration of these gingerbread houses and providing expert tips and tricks.  

It is a fun experience for children and parents alike, and we are excited to see their creativity flourish. While your child’s imagination runs wild, it’s the perfect opportunity for parents to soak up some tranquil lakeside views and take full advantage of the delicious food and beverage items. The lunch menu is resounding with locally sourced prime beef cuts and Southland flare to make your afternoon equally enjoyable. 

Once the kids have finished decorating their masterpieces, they can then indulge in the fruits of their labour or put their patience to the test by keeping them hidden at home until Christmas morning! 

Price: $39 per child
Timings: 11am-1pm
