Throw the perfect holiday party for your kids with the Bananagrams Game!

awesome holiday party that they won’t forget? Coppin’s Gifts has some awesome tips on how to make it a holiday get together that will end the year the right way!

Board games: The Bananagrams game is a fun word game will have all the kids excited! The Bananagrams game does not require pens, paper, or a game board, so there is less clean up involved and more time for fun! Each player grabs a bunch of tiles and tries to make as many words as they can. Board games are a great way for your kids to have fun and learn at the same time!

Reindeer feet: This fun craft can get everyone involved! Have the kids trace both of their feet and hands on construction paper. Next, cut out the tracings and paste the hand portion to the back of the feet portion, just enough so the fingers are showing at the top. Have the kids decorate their reindeers’ faces with googly eyes, glitter, or what ever else you have on hand!

Cookie decorating: This is a fun, hands-on craft you can do with your kids during a holiday party and the outcome is yummy! Have your kids help you mix the batter for the cookies, cut out the shapes, and keep an eye on the oven for when they need to come out. And of course, they can help you decorate with frosting and sprinkles, too!

    birthday party will turn into one, big cranky-fest. Make sure you plan the party for the afternoon (post-nap) so the little ones have energy to enjoy the party!

  • Lots of balloons: Kids adore balloons. It’s a fact of life. Make sure you pick foil or Mylar balloons so that the small kids do not choke on them. Helium balloons are always a great souvenir to take home with them, too!
  • Take it easy: Don’t stress. If something goes wrong, make sure not to freak out. We know it can be a really stressful day planning a party, but try not to get too worked up over such a fun, exciting, and celebratory day!
  • Check your food: Anyone have a food allergy you should be aware of? Make sure you call the kids’ parents to check beforehand.
