Three Awesome Kids Christmas Party Ideas

Looking for kids Christmas party ideas that don’t involve Santa or gifts? Here are three party ideas that will keep little hands busy.

Cookie baking or decorating party
Three Awesome Kids Christmas Party Ideas

Christmas baking is a lot more fun when you have a lot of hands helping. Why not invite your kids’ friends over for a party to help? They can help decorate gingerbread houses or cut-out cookies that you bake ahead of time, such as gingerbread or sugar cookie cut-outs. Or you can have a cookie baking party and let the kids help you make any kind of cookies you like!

Our Gleeful Gingerbread Kids Christmas Party Invitations or our Gingerbread Lane Kids Christmas Party Invitations are the perfect choice for this Christmas party idea!

Before the party begins, have all of your ingredients whether for baking or decorating ready to go, and set up several stations with supplies so the kids each have a place to work. Things may get messy when the kids dig in to help, but that’s half the fun. And, of course, each guest gets to take home a sampling of cookies.

9 things not to forget on your holiday party invitation and how to make it fun

It lets your guests know what to expect, how to dress, and what, if anything, to bring. Is it a formal dinner or a kid-friendly sledding party? Your invitation sets the stage and communicates all the details.

First, the details. Have you ever sent out party invitations and realized, too late, that you forgot to request a response? Or got your own address wrong? It happens all the time here at Pear Tree! Here’s a checklist of 9 things not to forget (and to double check before sending).

Tips for planning a Christmas party

We know that planning a Christmas party can be stressful, but we have some helpful tips from SheKnows.com on how to ease your mind.

Holiday Cocktail Party Invitations -- Sparkling Toasts1. Send your Christmas party invitations out early, at least a month in advance. The holidays get busy and it’s better to have your party on everyone’s calendar as soon as you start the planning.
2. Create a budget. Nobody likes a surprise when checking out at the grocery store. A little planning will go a long way.
3. If you are preparing the food, create a menu and timeline for when you need to shop, prepare and cook everything so you can be 100% ready. Prepare as much as you can in the days leading up to the party.
