Kids love the holidays, especially when there’s a Christmas party to attend, this is something that they will remember for a long time. Choose a theme for your party, decide how long the party will last, and get ready to send out invitations.
Put on a Snow Themed Party:
Children love snow, and whether you live in an area that gets a lot of it or not, you can put on a snow themed Christmas party for kids. Cut out paper snowflakes with the children and let them decorate them with glitter. Use cotton balls to play out a “snowball” fight indoors.
Serve snowflake cookies and other treats that celebrate snow, and find music for the party that mentions snow. Talk to the guests about snow and how it is made, and ask each guest what it is about snow that they love the most.
Consider a Santa Themed Party:
Children love Santa more than anything, and he is the focus of Christmas for most of them. Choose to put on a party that celebrates Santa and that features games and snacks that point to him. Create a playlist of all of the Christmas songs that mention Santa and have that playing during the party.
Talk about Santa and the gifts that each child hopes to receive from him. Consider hiring a Santa to come to your party and interact with the kids. Give the guests Santa Christmas ornaments to take home and hang on their own trees.
Put on a Christmas Movie Night:
There are many great Christmas movies out there, and you can find one that is appropriate for the group of kids that will be getting together for your party. Choose a movie to base your party on, and pick up snacks that fit that movie. Set up a comfortable viewing area for your guests, and consider investing in special speakers just for the party. Start the movie and let that be the entertainment for the party.
Host a Party Outside in the Cold:
If you have limited space indoors, you might consider putting on a Christmas party where kids spend a lot of time outside. You might take your guests caroling around the neighborhood, lead them in a tree decorating project, or sit around a fire in your yard and stay warm in that way.
Let guests know that you will be having your party outside so that they can dress appropriately, and consider asking extra adults to help out so that everyone stays safe. Find games and activities that can be played outside, and choose snacks and drinks for the party that will warm everyone as they are enjoyed.
Consider Renting a Skating Rink:
If you are not having a Christmas party at your home, try renting a skating rink for your guests to enjoy. There is something magical about spending time skating during the Christmas season, and you can fill the rink with loud Christmas music as your guests get their skates on and start to move around.
See if the rink that you are renting offers food for you to give to your guests, or plan out what you can bring to keep everyone satisfied as they exercise and enjoy themselves. Let children know ahead of time that they will be skating so they can dress appropriately and bring their own skates if they have them.
Choose to Focus on a Charity with the Party that You Throw:
You might put on a special party to raise money for charity, or you might ask all of the children invited to your party to bring along a small gift to be donated to those in need. You can either make your party fully focused on a charity and educate your guests about that charity, or you can bring a charitable element to any other party you put on.
Choose what you want your party to look like and start planning it. Decide if gifts will be exchanged at the party you put on or not – and ensure that the guests know what you have decided. You can put on a special event that children will love.
