Hello, this is the new Lincoln 5th grade Tech Club. We have already started our first project, we are creating gingerbread hearts for the children in Croatia. Here is a description of our project.

This year’s theme is “Gingerbread Heart” inspired by Ivana’s story “Licitarsko srce”
(traditional gingerbread heart)
By giving a licitarsko srce (traditional gingerbread heart) to your loved ones, you pass
on the warmth and love.

Honey dough in the shape of a heart, bright red in colour is decorated by a rich
flourish of bright colours form the licitarsko srce (traditional gingerbread heart).

The tradition of making licitarsko srce (traditional gingerbread heart) dates back to
the 16th and 17th century when cakes were made with the aid of richly decorated
wooden moulds in numerous European monasteries.

From ancient times, the original intention of licitarsko srce (traditional gingerbread
heart) was in giving it as a gift to your loved ones, whereby loved ones were given
the warm and telling gift (licitarsko srce -licitar) on special occasions.

According to the tradition of giving licitarsko srce (traditional gingerbread heart),
which has been retained to the present day, express your love, attention and fancy
to those you love and respect most, for all values that make this world a better place
for everyone.

Here is an example of my gingerbread heart!
