Sweets, Treats and Candy
Christmas is the most magical time of year. What is more, the sheer amount of sugar that is consumed is enough to make anyone hyperactive! If you want to make sure your children eat properly, you can throw a party that has plenty of tasty treats. Sandwiches and carrots sticks are great. You can even name the food with season terms. This is a wonderful way to get the kids involved with the food. Rudolph Treats could be the name of your carrot sticks, for example. Ensure that you have a good mix of treats, candy and vegetables so that the kids don’t get bored with the food. You can get your hands on wholesale candy to make sure that this is done as cheaply as possible.
Keep your party in the festive spirit by playing popular tracks of the season. There are a lot of pop Christmas hits that kids love. Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera have done Christmas themed music. Kids are sure to love dancing around to these hits. Christmas carols tend to have little appeal for smaller children. Try to indulge their more modern love of Christmas. You can always make a playlist via iTunes. That way, you won’t have to suffer the strains of modern musicians for too long!
Fun and Games
You can turn the traditional party on its head by getting kids interested in party games. Pinning the beard to Santa could be a fun game to play. Seasonal pass the parcel is another classic party game that kids love. You can wrap up candy canes in colourful Christmas wrapping paper. There are lots of different games to play that children of all ages will love to play.
Christmas treasure hunts are perfect to play. You can even devise your holiday themed card map. They can win a small prize at the end in the form of Christmas baubles. For younger children, you can even get them to make seasonal holiday cards to take home. You will be spoilt for choice at how to keep them entertained during your party. What is more, they will have heaps of fun. After all, that is what the party is all about; everyone having fun.
