Tis The Season For Holiday Workshops

Seasonal crafting activities for tots

It’s the most wonderful time of year—partially because there’s so much for the rugrats to do.

Tastebuds Kitchen is offering its annual Gingerbread House Classes, where little chefs learn how to assemble and decorate their own holiday cookie abode, complete with frosted candy roofs and pretzel picket fences (beginning 12/2; ages 2-10 with an adult; $75). 109 W. 27th St., 212.242.2248

The Plaza invites kids  for dreidel decorating or gingerbread cookie decorating at two upcoming events: Chanukah Arts & Crafts (12/6; 4-5pm; $50) and Cookies for Santa (12/20; 4-5pm; $50 for 2 cookies, $75 for 5 cookies). Reservations required, eloise@theplaza.com. 1 W. 58th St., 212.546.5460
At the new Land of Nod pop-up shop, little ones can make winter crafts with textile artist Heather Ross (12/6, 5:30-7:30pm); whip up animal-shaped candy pops and other sweets at the Confectionary Forest Menagerie with Beth Kimmerie (12/7, 4-7pm; 12/8 & 12/9, 11am-2pm); or be creative with pompoms, felts, paper and lots of glue with Eeboo (12/15; 12-3pm). All crafting workshops are free. 136 Prince Street, 917.880.0809
And if your holiday schedule is too hectic for workshop commitments, we’ve gotten word that a shipment of seasonal ceramics has just landed at Make Meaning. Tots can drop in to paint Judaica goods like menorahs and Star of David mugs and bowls; collectible figurines like reindeer, Santa and snowmen; and assorted ornaments like snowflakes, Christmas trees and candy canes. 329 Columbus Ave., 212. 362.0350 or 1501 3rd Ave., 212.744.0001
