See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
I am planning on inviting all the little girls from DD's kindergarten class to a Gingerbread House Decorating Party. I want to have it on a Saturday from either 1-3pm or 2-5pm.
I am going to have the gingerbread house already assembled, so all they have to do is decorate with the candy.
After they decorate I was going to have them play some games- Pin the Nose on Rudolph, Knock down the Christmas Cups, Ring Toss, etc.
While the kids are playing(with supervision of course) I was going to clean off the table and set up snacks. I was thinking mini ham and cheese sandwiches cut into the shape of stars, fruit and veggies, juice, and some sort of sweets.
After that I was thinking about having them then make a craft. I was thinking about doing Gingerbread playdough. It's an easy home made recipe and then it's something else the kids get to take home.
I was also going to be doing a treat bag- The playdough( or other craft), a gingerbread man cookie, a Christmas pencil and stickers.
What are your thoughts? What would you change or add if your child was attending?
Here is the time table I was thinking of
1-1:45 Decorating time
1:45- 2:15 Game Time
2:15- 2:50 Playdough Making
2:50-3 Clean up, getting ready to go home.
I was also going to get my mom to help me with the decorating and snacks, and SO to supervise the games.
