Cookie Box Creations Are Here!

In case you haven’t heard, Cookie Box Creations are back at Galleria Dallas for another fun, STEM-filled month of cookie box art! This year 12 teams and generous members of the community from all over, worked together to build structures that “Explore the Outdoors”.

These structures took months of planning, and we finally got to watch it all come to life during the early, Sunday morning hour.








Now let’s meet the 12 teams!

Team 1 – Archery

The pictures give you an idea of what this year’s sweet contest looks like, but they certainly don’t do the structures justice. Make it a family affair and visit Galleria Dallas by April 2 to see these AMAZING creations, then vote for your favorite!
