A Peek at the Fun: Looking for Kid’s Christmas Party Ideas for a class party at school this year? This list of crafts, books, treats, and games will make the party planning easy and it will be a party the kids will love!
Calling all the room moms out there (or anyone throwing a party for the kiddos this holiday season)!! I have been the mom who is up the night before trying to figure out what to do and scouring the internet for kid’s school Christmas party ideas. It’s fun to throw the party, but coming up with the plans can be tricky, right?
Since I like to try to make life easy for my readers, I’ve got a whole party planned for you-all you’ve got to do is take these ideas, get the supplies and show up!
I’m giving you ideas for food, crafts, games, and books to read at the party. I’m assuming you will divide the kids into groups and cycle them through stations so that they get to do each of these activities.
Kid’s School Christmas Party Ideas:
Let’s start with a great craft idea!
Kid’s Christmas Party Craft Idea:
How fun are these cup cozies? And this couldn’t be a simpler craft to put together. I let our kiddos give it a try and they absolutely loved it!
- Hot Cups with Lids (affiliate link)
- Corrugated Card Stock
- Template for the Cup Cozy
- Googly Eyes
- Pom Poms
- Pipe Cleaners
- Foam Shape Cut Outs (We Found Pre-made Packages at Hobby Lobby but any Craft Store will Have Them)
Print the template we provide (Template for the Cup Cozy), trace, and cut out the cup cozy. If you think the kiddos are old enough, they can cut out their own. Otherwise cut them ahead of time.
I used hot glue to attach the cup cozy to the cup. Glue dots would work great too. Aren’t these little guys so cute!?
Hot Chocolate Bar Ideas:
Once the cups are decorated, let the kiddos build a perfect cup of hot chocolate at a hot chocolate bar!! So yummy and they will love adding their hot chocolate favorites!
Hot Chocolate Bar Supplies:
- Hot Chocolate
- Torani Drink Flavorings
- Whip Cream
- Pepperidge Farms Rolled Wafers
- Candy Canes
How fun is this hot chocolate bar?! I suggest reading Christmas stories while the children enjoy their hot chocolate (I have ideas with links to some books at the end of the post)!
Don’t Eat Pete Printable Christmas Game:
- Don’t Eat Pete Printable Christmas Game Board
- Candy, Marshmallows, Gold Fish (anything to fill in the spots on the board)
How to Play:
Cover each character with the candy (or whatever food you brought to use). Choose one person to be “It”, and send them out of the room. The rest of the group chooses which character to be “Pete.” The “It” person comes back and starts to eat the candy off the board in whatever order they want. When they reach to grab the “Pete” all the other players yell “DON’T EAT PETE” and that “It” person isn’t it anymore. Choose and new “It” and repeat until all the children have had a turn to be “It.”
Christmas Book Suggestions:
I love doing something simple like reading Christmas stories to the kids at the party. Here are some great books you could try! (affiliate links)
