Candy Christmas Tree Treats

Are these not the cutest candy Christmas tree treats ever?  Perfect to serve at a holiday parties, Christmas Day open houses and even to give as stocking stuffers or small holiday gifts of endearment. We also love the fact that these  Christmas tree treats are so easy for the kids to make themselves. While you are preparing your holiday meal, set the kids (and other family members that might be under-foot) up at the kitchen table, and put them all to work. Now add an individual Christmas Tree Treat at each place setting.  You can set them in the middle of each plate or use as a place card holder >> just lean a small place card up against your hand Christmas Tree! #toocute

The game is fun, because each person gets to select a wrapped gift, unwrap it and then possibly lose it to someone else and have to select again. Being able to select from unwrapped gifts or “steal” a gift someone is holding is what makes this game so much fun. Continue Reading →

What could be easier?  Are you like us — we plan every detail of our parties – the invitations, the party decor, the party favors, the food, and never think about planning activities absolutely convinced that our guests are interesting and engaging individuals and can easily entertain themselves.  (except for children’s parties where we plan and schedule every minute).  And then once in a while, we either have a sneaking suspicion a day or so in advance or are caught completely off guard right then and there and realize things aren’t going so well.  We have had political conversations go ballistic, strident parenting advice get a bit overbearing, and the freshly minted vegan choose this opportunity to proselytize.  There is not much to do about it except quickly change the conversation.  That’s where these printable holiday games come in extraordinarily handy. So be your own holiday party savior with this fun and easy way to keep the kids and adults entertained for hours during long holiday gatherings.
