THE gingerbread house in the Brothers Grimm story of Hansel and Gretel came alive as children at Launceston LINC created their own yesterday.
As part of the free national summer holiday program Untangled Tales, children can learn and read all about different childhood stories, including King Arthur and The Phoenix from Greek mythology.
A group of around 20 children, their parents, carers and grandparents built their own cardboard gingerbread houses, complete with decorated roofs, windows, doorways and gardens.
LINC manager Garry Conroy-Cooper said all of the activities related to promoting reading and literacy.
Activities are running at both LINC Launceston and Ravenswood until January 18 and will end with a performance by educational duo Jack and Molly.
