Families with children up to age 12 are invited to participate in Castelton Square and Greenwood Park’s Candy Cane Cottage Competitions (candy cane themed gingerbread houses). It’s all about great family fun with icing, candy and creativity. Plus great prizes! The friendly competition will benefit KidsPeace Foster Care and Family Services.
Twelve Finalists will be selected at each mall and their creative entries will be displayed for millions of holiday shoppers to view and vote on their favorite. At Castelton Square Mall, the life-size candy cane cottages will be displayed near Santa at the mall’s Center Court. At Greenwood Park Mall, they will be displayed near Santa in the Von Maur/JCPenney Court.
Use your imagination and get right to the fun of assembling and decorating your festive Candy Cane Cottage. If you are a family of beginners, you may wish to pick up a kit that includes the Gingerbread house/cottage pieces only to get you started. Cottage kits are free to Simon Kidgets Club members and $5 for others. Limit one kit per family while supplies last. Starter kit distribution begins November 10, 2012.
