We are continuing on the 12 days of Christmas with a fun Kids Activity! Or, a fun day for kids, whichever you prefer. We decided to go with an afternoon of fun for the kids and Oriental Trading Company has helped us tremendously with this! They were gracious enough to give us some of the supplies needed to complete our fun afternoon!
My inspiration was a fun little girl Paris party. We wanted to have some Eiffel Towers and lots of pink! Of course this is my kind of party! We wanted white, Eiffel Towers, pink, silver, gold, snacks, and a fun activity. Thankfully, Oriental Trading was able to help us out with some of these things.
So we started our afternoon by setting the table. We had a beautiful faux fur table runner (I’ll just say that mom and I have really enjoyed petting it, it’s SOOO SOFT) and we used it as a faux snow for our centerpiece. We had some white houses that we used to decorate last year and some Eiffel Towers that I have as decoration around my apartment. And of course to make it Christmassy we added some cute sisal trees. Honestly, how cute is it?
Since this is a kids party, we knew we had to have some fun activities. We found these coloring page placemats on Oriental’s website and knew that these would be perfect for our party. Unfortunately, we didn’t have any kids who were there while setting up for our party, so mom and I got to color the placemats. And Munchy helped!
Since every good party needs some snacks, we thought the coolest thing would to have a cupcake decorating station. So we have some cupcakes that we decorated with pink and green sprinkles from Oriental Trading. Who knew you could buy a whole pound of sprinkles from Oriental Trading? We also got these cute cupcake carriers from Oriental Trading. There are so many different designs of cupcake carriers so you can pick your favorites. Of course, I picked the pink chevron design! The carriers fit two cupcakes or a lot of cookies if you wanted.
The other fun activity we picked out for kids was making an ornament. We found all of the items needed on Oriental Trading’s website. We found these cute open face clear ornaments and I knew what I wanted. I found fake snow, cute deer ornaments, and some tiny sisal trees. Now, some of the deer were too big for the ornaments but the little fawns were perfect size. So with a little hot glue, we were able to glue the deer and the trees into the ornaments before pouring the fake snow in the bottom. How cute are they! And even though the ornaments may require a little adult supervision but they would be cute gifts to take home.
And that’s it! This is totally my kind of party. How fun would this be for kids, or adults? We had so much fun making everything for this party and we can’t wait to actually have a party with our nieces! So thank you to Oriental Trading for helping us set up our Kid’s Activity Party. And thank you for stopping by! See you on Monday!
