Extra fun for kids at Fort York (ages 4 and up)
Tues. to Sat. December 27 to 31, 11 am and 2 pm
While you enjoy a tour of Fort York your kids can join the cooks in the Officers' Mess kitchen to create traditional gingerbread cookies. In this hands-on workshop, kids will use period cooking utensils and tools to sift flour, crush cinnamon, cloves, or allspice, pound sugar and grate nutmeg and ginger as they prepare an 1800s gingerbread recipe. Samples may be taken home–if they last that long! Workshop is limited to 15 participants.
Included with regular admission, sign up in the Museum Store when you arrive.
