It’s the holiday season and Christmas parties are happening left and right. School age kids have classroom parties, adults have work parties, then there are family and friend get togethers. I have small children and often times they tag along but rarely do they get a party of their own. I thought it would be fun to throw a toddler Christmas party for my 2-year-old and her friends with food, crafts and decorations tailored just for them. Here’s how you can throw a Toddler Christmas Party.
I wanted to have a party with a few snacks, one craft and one activity that 2-3-year-olds would enjoy. Kids this age really just want to play and explore, so too much structure would be a bit much. I opted instead for a simple set up that they could partake in at their leisure.
Here’s how to throw an easy Toddler Christmas Party
Start at Oriental Trading and pick a theme. I chose red and white winter items that I know I can reuse for other events. These decorations hold up really well and I’m looking forward to using them for my family Christmas party too.
Create a photo booth. I chose a winter back drop and hung it up in my kitchen, a big statement with very little effort. I paired that with a set of winter hats, scarves and other fun photo props that the kids and adults can use to take silly pictures.
Chose a craft. I chose an easy craft, a snowman picture frame, that kids can work on with an adult. They just peel and stick the pieces together. Very little mess! This craft works really well with the winter-themed photo booth. It makes for a cute memory after the party.
Set a Kids Sized Buffet. For food I went simple, really simple. Kids can be picky so a fancy spread is really not necessary. I chose carrot and celery sticks, yogurt pretzels, and string cheese. I served water and juice in cute straw bottles that kids can take home after the party. I set all the food out on a kid-sized table so little hands can reach.
These few activities, simple food and pretty decorations make for an easy and festive Toddler Christmas party. To top it all off I sent each friend home with a festive gift box that included a fancy lollipop, their craft with a photo, and a bottle. A few mementos from a fun party.
Get everything you need at Oriental Trading and throw a memorable party for your little ones this year.
