guide to children's Christmas parties at school or at home
Present Ideas and Recipes
girl scout leader for many years and a homeroom parent for both of my
children I have planned many school Christmas Parties. You will find some
ideas for kids parties
It is important to be organized
whenever you are catering to children. It is essential to keep the
kids busy at all times. Plan all games and crafts in advance.
Make sure you have all materials cut and ready to go.
Ask your kids about trendy
Christmas music that you can play.
A routine that works for kids parties
is setting up stations and then dividing the kids into equal groups.
Send each group to a station and then in 10 or 15 minutes rotate them.
Stations can include games crafts, cooking, dancing, and/or reading a
story. Stick to
games that everyone knows or that have simple rules. If your games
can reflect your theme that would be great. You can rename the
classic games to suit your theme.
Be sure to have an adult or older sibling at each station
to help the kids complete the task.
Once stations are complete you can
serve the food and sing Christmas Carols.
Kids love balloons and streamers and
they will go a long way. Put streamers around the tables and in
the door way like a curtain. Add bunches of balloons on the table
and strategically placed in the room. Be sure that you have enough
balloons to give every kid one to take home. Create or purchase a
banner. Use props to help create the theme.
Purchase red/green plates, napkins, silverware and table covers.
Consider using a Santa hat
(stuffed with tissue paper) as a centerpiece.
Sending each child
home with a favor is always a great way to end the party. You can
fill a bag with small trinkets and candy or have them do a craft. It is best
if everyone gets the same favor. You may also want to have some prizes on
hand for the winner of the games.
