How To Throw A Kids’ Christmas Party

Planning a Christmas party for kids? This is the right time to get started. Thinking ahead is the key to making stress-free memories. Whether you’re hosting a kids’ Christmas party at home or helping to plan a party at school, here are some great ideas for a kid-friendly, festive time:


  • How fun will it be to organize a snowball fight? I bet you’re thinking – this is Texas, where can I get snow? Let’s get creative – roll up some white socks (clean, of course) and let the kids have a go at it in your backyard. 
  • No Christmas party is complete without cookie decorating. To keep it as clean as possible, cover the surface with plastic tablecloth and dispose of it after. Supply cutout sugar cookies and provide toppings that may range from crushed candy canes to M&Ms and sprinkles.
  • Consider setting up a Christmas photo booth using cool printables.



  • Christmas cards: Give kids card stock, Christmas-themed stickers, markers/crayons and help them unleash the artist within.
  • Reindeer headbands: Simple and effective, these bands would make for great photo props as well as a fun favor to take home.
  • Crayon trees: Pre-cut old crayons and let kids arrange them in silicone molds.



  • Marshmallow snowmen with pretzel sticks are easy to put together and add fun to the table.
  • Make Strawberry Santas to add some spunk and color.
  • The beverage of choice can be milk in these great Snowman bottles. Sure to get kids excited about their dressed up drink. You can find the tutorial here.

Remember to enjoy this time with your kids and let the magic of the holidays envelope your celebrations!
