Planning the Perfect Kids’ Holiday Party

With the holidays right around the corner, your kids might want to get together with their friends to celebrate. Why not plan them an

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

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!
