‘Tis the season for some holiday cheer, and what better way to boost your STEM and artistic skills than our new Cori “Gingerbread” Automata House Kit. This STEM project goes beyond the traditional version, as we amplified the Cori “gingerbread house” with a dancing automata design in your chimney, functional door, and a removable roof for interior decorating. The use of the Santa included in the template is optional, and may be replaced with an object or symbol of your choice from your own materials. Limit the sweets this year, and reimagine the gingerbread house with this new modern twist to a classic holiday experience.
