With Winter Being Here
With winter being here, many of us are bundling up and trying to keep ourselves warm as we deal with the frigid temperatures outside. For kids, being stuck indoors and unable to play outside is even worse, leaving parents frustrated. While it may be okay to put them in front of the TV or video game systems for a time, it is important to get kids interacting with others and having fun doing other, more creative projects. Rather than go with the same boring things this winter, consider taking a day and having a fun winter kids party with all of your children's friends!
Winter Kids Party: Crafts
Since it's too cold to play outside, consider having some fun, winter-themed crafts available for children at your party. This is the best time of year for doing fun projects that may be a bit time consuming but allow children to learn something new and fun. One craft that many children, especially little girls, love doing during the winter is learning how to make jewelry. You can find jewelry kits with a winter theme that are very simple, and some that are more complex, including beautiful beads with winter themed charms and colored beads. Sometimes they can be a bit difficult to find, so don't forget to check Christmas sections at party stores. After Christmas, you can often find snowflake and snowman kits discounted, allowing you to make adorable craft projects without the high prices!
Winter Kids Party: Treats
Another activity that is quite a bit of fun for children is making fun treats in the kitchen with mom or dad. It becomes even more fun when you have lots of little girls working together to make cupcakes, cookies, and other fun treats! To avoid a disaster, however, make sure you have everything together before little ones start working in the kitchen. If you are having lots of children, you may want to consider purchasing cookie or cupcake kits with a winter theme. These kits come with everything you need for decorating that dessert. Cookies are always a favorite since parents can make the dough ahead of time, allowing kids to make their own cookies with winter themed cookie cutters and then decorate them with sprinkles, colored sugar, and food grade paints.
If you want to be a little more creative, you may also want to consider making your own winter themed cupcakes. You can purchase snowflake or snowman themed cupcake cups, cupcake skirts, and even cupcake picks! Girls will have fun decorating their favorite cupcakes, giving them a fun winter theme! Best of all, they can share their creations when they are finished, allowing everyone to later relax and enjoy the yummy treats!
