You will need
Platter or cutting board, as workshop base
Rimmed cookie sheet or waxed paper, optional, for ease in decorating
(Adult Supervision Required)
Adults Knead icing pouch for 1 minute to a soft, smooth consistency. Snip the corner of the icing pouch to a ¼-inch opening. Be careful not to cut the opening too large. Squeeze half of the pouch into a mixing bowl and set the pouch aside to use in building the workshop later. Stir 1 tsp. water into the bowl to thin icing slightly. Stand piping bag in a tall glass and drape over edges to hold open. Use a spatula to transfer icing into piping bag. Twist top to close and cut a small tip. Shake icing pens vigorously and cut the tip off each.
Kids Remove candies and sugars from pouches and place into bowls. Carefully remove cookie pieces from packaging and lay out on a flat surface with smooth sides of cookies facing up. Decorate workshop pieces with icing and candies. Sprinkle with sugars as desired and tap off excess over a rimmed baking sheet or waxed paper. ADULT HINT: Gumdrops can be cut and shaped with kitchen scissors. Allow decorated pieces to dry thoroughly before building workshop.
Adults Being mindful of decorations, pipe a line of frosting next to the side edges on the back of cookie piece A. Pipe another line on the bottom of that same piece (figure 1). Pipe a line of frosting on the bottom edge of both side pieces B & C (figure 2). Stand the front cookie piece onto the platter and press gently to adhere. Press one of the side pieces in place to form a right angle (figure 3). Repeat with the other side piece. Hold cookies in position for 1 minute to allow icing to begin to set. Let workshop rest for 10 minutes before continuing. Pipe a line of icing along the angled edge of the side wall that faces front and carefully position roof into place, allowing it to rest on front dormer (figure 4). Pipe lines of icing on the angled edges of both dormer pieces and press into position above the door (figure 5). Allow assembled workshop to set for at least 10 minutes before any further decorating.
Kids Squeeze a small dab of icing onto the corners of the back of each interior paper piece. ADULT HINT: Assist kids in gently pressing paper pieces into position to form the inside of the workshop. Insert character paper pieces into their paper stands and place around workshop as desired. Allow Santa’s workshop to dry completely for 30 minutes before carefully moving. Admire and enjoy!
HINT: Use items from your pantry like coconut shavings, powdered sugar or granulated sugar to create a snowy scene!
