My 9 year old daughter is in girl scouts- and I am in charge of the October Meeting. I looked up the available topics and found architecture. I thought I would show them a slide show on some different styles of architecture- and then take them on a walk around the neighborhood- where they would be able to identify the styles they just learned about. If I really spend a lot of time in preparation- which realistically may not happen- I thought it would be fun to make spooky haunted gingerbread houses incorporating identifiable architectural elements. I have a feeling that part might not happen..... I am a busy girl you know...
