Gingerbread houses, seasonal cookies, Christmas cards, and merry ornaments are all waiting to be decorated this holiday season. Here are five Hamptons events where kids can show off their artistic abilities.

Children of all ages are invited work their magic on a pre-made Citarella gingerbread house at Guild Hall (158 Main Street, East Hampton, 1-866-811-4111, www.guildhall.org) on Saturday, December 14, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. All decorations, materials and cookies will be provided.

Another event for budding artists is Southampton Historical Museum's (17 Meeting House Lane, Southampton, 631-283-2494, www.southamptonhistoricalmuseum.org) children's cookie house workshop for ages 7 to 12 years old. The workshop on Saturday, December 14, at 11 a.m., will be led by Nancy DePetris.

The Westhampton Free Library (7 Library Avenue, Westhampton Beach, 631-288-3335, www.westhamptonlibrary.net) is bringing in a very special guest on Saturday, December 14, from 2 to 3 p.m. Bring the kids to meet a friendly snowman, and enjoy seasonal specialties like hot cocoa and cookies. If your little one still hasn't written a Letter to Santa, have them write their wish list and the Library promises to get it to the North Pole in time for Christmas Eve.

Kids can also channel their creative side at Children's Museum of the East End's (376 Bridgehampton Turn Pike, Bridgehampton, cmee.org) holiday cookie event on Saturday, December 21, at 10:30 a.m. Little ones will learn about holiday traditions around the world while Chef Alan reads Iza Trapani's "Jingle Bells." Then, they can make cookies and decorate a festive treat box to take home.

The Hampton Library (2478 Main Street, Bridgehampton, 631-537-0015, www.hamptonlibrary.org) is hosting a winter ornament workshop on Saturday, December 21, at 4:30 p.m. Kids of all ages can decorate a special ornament to add to the family Christmas tree.
