Kiddie Soiree: Holiday Party Ideas

While all the adults are sipping cocktails and eating tasty hors d'oeuvres, the kids can have their own soiree if you give them the right tools and space. Close off a room of the house with a sign that says, "For Kids Only!" so they will feel privileged to have a place of their own. Then show them craft projects and games they can play with each other. Here are some ideas:

  • Make a candy cane. Using red and white crepe paper, the kids can make candy canes out of each other by having one child hold the loose ends of the crepe paper rolls. The other children can then wrap up that person in a white and red striped pattern. They can take turns being the candy cane.

  • See how many toys Santa can stuff into his sack. Give the kids one big trash bag and lots of toys. Using a kitchen timer, each child has one minute to see how many toys they can stuff in the bag. They can play this game over and over.
  • Elves making toys. Set out a bunch of arts and crafts supplies – googly eyes, pipe cleaners, felt pieces, glue, sequins, markers, cotton balls and construction paper and let them get creative with making toys, ornaments, etc.

When they've run out of making things, they can start acting out Santa, the elves, and any other characters they choose. But at least they'll have a head start on the gear! Of course, you'll have to check on them every now and then to make sure all is well, but they'll be so busy that you are sure to get some sipping and snacking in.
