Raise the roof with a gingerbread house-making party. For young children, you can pre-build small houses out of gingerbread or graham crackers. If you have teenagers and want to kick the theme up a notch, have the teens design and bake their house parts ahead of time and bring them to the party. Then, give everyone an hour to assemble and decorate their houses. Put everyone's creativity to the test by inviting some judges over to choose the best gingerbread house.
Set out an array of candies, and give each child a plastic sandwich bag filled with icing that's tied off with a small hole poked in one corner. Show them some basic ideas for decorating the houses, such as using shredded coconut as snow, and then let them create their masterpieces. For favors, you can provide kid-sized aprons or gingerbread-man cookies in cellophane bags.
It wasn't all that long ago that Christmas gifts were made rather than purchased. Bring back the tradition by hosting a Christmas craft party. Do this in a simple way by having the Christmas party focus on ornaments only and setting up three or so stations where the children can make different decorations for the tree. You could also have kids undertake other crafty holiday projects like making advent calendars.
Instead of making actual gifts, guests also could make wrapping paper or Christmas cards at the party. The crafts should be enough of a favor themselves, but you could also send creative kids home with a blank artist's notebook and a set of Crayons or drawing pencils.
Party With a Purpose
It's natural for kids to associate Christmas with receiving presents, but you can help them find the deeper meaning by reaching out to those who are less fortunate. Throw a party with a purpose by focusing on a charitable theme or simply asking guests to bring nonperishable food, winter coats, or other donations to the Christmas bash.
You could decorate the main table with a large stack of canned goods shaped like a tree, trim a tree with scarves as garland, or hang strings of mittens above every doorway. At the end of the celebration, you can talk about what you're grateful for this holiday season and donate the goods to the charity of choice.
