Hello Mommies,

My husbands work is doing a Children's Christmas party this year, and they put my husband in charge of the activites. Needless to say, he is clueless as to what children aged 3-10 would be interested in. I'm curious if any of you have any neat ideas that would be an easy game, craft, activity, etc. Again, the ages of children are 3- 10. We've already figured to do cookie decorating, and coloring printed paper ornament shapes to be placed on a tree at the offices. Any other ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a whole bunch, and Happy Holidays!

How about making snow flakes. You can also go to Michaels or Joannes any crafts place and they have foam holiday kits that kids 3 & up can make they usually cost about 10.00 for up to 25 kids. How about Santa and the kids can sit on his lap and get a photo taken? Also, my husbands work always had a magician come and do little tricks. Coloring and or playdough is always fun too. Good luck
