Plan a Midwest Tree-Trimming Party
Fun for kids
Keep kids busy during the party by creating their own crafting (and snacking) area. Pick a playful theme, such as barnyard animals, and prepare coordinating activities and refreshments. Spread brown paper on a table for coloring. Provide supplies for making ornaments, and let kids decorate their own miniature tree. To add easy decor (that doubles as a sweet treat), fill glass cookie jars with red-and-white peppermint sticks, licorice and hard candies. Don't forget a plate of Christmas cookies!
