The best part about the holiday season is celebrating with those close to you! Whether you're helping out at your child's school party or you're getting friends and family together for some festive fun, these holiday party ideas are great!

These "Christmas light" balloons are a fun, easy way to add some festive flavor to your home! Use light up balloons or glow sticks for an awesome glow in the dark effect! You can also add glitter or confetti to make your "lights" shine! Find step-by-step directions at Living Locurto

While it may look like a kid's game, this snowman mummy game is hysterical and perfect for any party! Split into teams and use toilet paper, scarves, and hats to turn one of the team members into a snowman. Whoever creates the best snowman in five minutes wins!

Gingerbread houses look so fun, but they're usually a messy pain to make. It's nearly impossible to keep the sides together and, with one wrong move, the whole thing falls apart. Especially great for younger kids, an alternative idea is to make gingerbread cookies shaped like houses, and let the kids decorate those instead. You get all the decorating fun without the structural mess! Check out Hostess with the Mostess for instructions!

Kick Cabin Fever to the Curb

"The weather outside is frightful." Is there a lyric that more accurately describes the winter weather? Winter break is right around the corner and, understandably, you may not be super eager to play with your kids outside in the cold and snow (we don't blame you)! But just because you're staying inside doesn't mean you can't enjoy the season!

This "snow dough" is easy to make and SNOW much fun to play with! It's super soft, naturally cold, and, we saved the best part for last, it doesn't require any cooking! Use beads and a variety of other fun embellishments to create snowmen! When your kids are done playing for the day, just store the dough in a Ziploc bag or air-tight container until next time. Find the instructions at Growing a Jeweled Rose!

This winter hat craft is the perfect indoor activity for kids and can be tailored to any age group. Use a variety of markers, crayons, colored pencils, stickers, and whatever else you can think of to decorate the hats! For younger kids, have an adult cut the hats out after the decoration process. Find the template and full directions at Easy Peasy and Fun!

This fun mitten math snowflake counting activity is a great way to incorporate some math into winter break! Perfect for toddlers and preschoolers, this winter-themed counting game helps with number recognition and fine motor skills! It's easy to set up and will keep your little one busy and productive! Find the instructions at Stir the Wonder!

This snowflake painting project might be messy, but it sure is fun! Two activities combined into one, kids can first decorate their canvases with either coffee filter snowflakes or painter's tape! After that, use paint, glitter, and anything else fun to turn the canvas into a winter wonderland! Peel off the tape or coffee filters and voila! Find the step by step directions at Little Bins for Little Hands!

Thanksgiving: A Day Full of Thankful Activities

How is it possible that Thanksgiving is only a week away? This year is flying by! Of course, one of the best parts of the holiday is sitting down to eat that delicious Thanksgiving dinner you've been dreaming about, but how do you spend the rest of the day? Keep the kids entertained (and out of the kitchen) with this fun, Thanksgiving-themed scavenger hunt! Find the full instructions and printables from The Taylor House!

Put a unique, personalized spin on the classic hand/footprint turkey crafts by putting a picture of your kid making a hilarious face on top of the turkey's head! While the process might be a little messy, the result will be hilarious and totally worth it! Continue the tradition and compare the turkeys from year to year! Find the supply list and directions at Crafty Morning!

These adorable candy corn turkey sugar cookies are super fun to make and even better to eat! Oven space is likely to be pretty limited on Thanksgiving Day, so you can make the sugar cookies the night before and just decorate them on Thanksgiving! Check out Wal-Mart for the full recipe!

As evidenced by the name of the holiday, Thanksgiving is a time to be appreciative and voice gratitude for the things you're thankful for. This "I am thankful for..." printable placemat lets your kids express what they're thankful for and can be used as a coloring page! Find the printable at the Kids Activities Blog!

A Dino-mite Party!

Choosing a party theme isn't always easy! As my kids have grown, I've come to realize that I get less and less say in things. First, it was with their Halloween costumes, and then their clothes, so I know my days of adorable birthday parties will soon be gone! After months of discussion, my son decided he wanted either a Lego party or a dinosaur one! He tried to convince me to merge the two themes but I held firm that it couldn't be done. At last, we had a theme. . .dinosaurs!
The next step after finally deciding on a theme: sending the invitations! This is likely our last "just family" party, so I went for quick and easy online invites, sending them via e-mail and Facebook! You can download the background here, then just add text!
Now, it was time to decide on the cake. I do not cook. Well, I cook sometimes, but only because my family insists on eating all of the time, it's not my strong suit! So, my initial plan was a bakery cake, but my six year old and I couldn't find one we agreed on. My next plan was to order cupcakes and put toppers on those (you all know how I love my toppers)! Then, I came across this little gem from Sprinkle Bakes!
I actually already had the sand molds, so that part was easy! The only problem is that my son, Hudson, prefers vanilla over chocolate, so we decided our dinosaur skeleton would be found in sand instead of dirt! Here's our adjusted recipe:
Ingredients:
2 boxes of cake mix (white, prepared per package instructions)
2.5 tubs of prepared vanilla frosting
1 package golden Oreos, finely crushed in the food processors
1.5 lbs white chocolate
Quick and dirty instructions:
1. Mix, bake, cool, and frost the cake (frost all the way to the edges, you don't want to lose any sand!)
2. Melt the chocolate (slow and steadily, don't ask how I know this). Put in the molds and freeze
3. Crush the cookies, spread most of the "sand" around, and place the dinosaur mold on top, then sprinkle with a little extra sand.
I made the cake the day before and covered it tightly with plastic wrap and foil. It spent the night on the counter and was delicious for the party (and a few days beyond)!
So that leaves the menu, everything was dinosaur-style, of course! We had Pterodactyl wings (chicken wings), Brontosaurus burgers, omnivorous pasta salad, Stegosaurus spikes (watermelon wedges), Dino bones (regular and white chocolate covered pretzels), Dinosaur Claws (Cheetos and Fritos), and Herbivore Haven (a veggie tray)!
I also created some Dino-themed freebies! Pictured below is the Dinosaur Maze, but there are also dinosaur coloring pages and a dot to dot! Image credits to Little Red's Clip Art
The party was a great success, everyone had a dino-mite time!

Forest, Friends, and Fun!

These chocolate peanut butter acorns are an awesome, creative, and tasty snack, perfect for a forest friends party! All you need are mini-Nutter Butters, Hershey's Kisses, and mini-chocolate chips! You can either put a bowl of these out at the party, or put them in individual baggies as a party favor! Check out Honey and Butter for full instructions!

These DIY animal track stamps are a great way to keep the kids entertained! Make the stamps ahead of time and then give each party a guest a large sheet of paper and some paint! Then, have the kids label the animal that corresponds with each set of tracks! A quick Google search will bring up all sorts of animal tracks you can re-create! For more information, check out Green Kid Crafts!

Another fun animal-related activity is making paper plate raccoons! There are tutorials for all sorts of animals, but I thought these raccoons were too cute! All you need are paper plates, gray tissue paper, black and white yardstick, glue, scissors, a stapler, and some fun punches. Parents can help the kids with the more difficult parts like cutting and stapling! Check out Glued to my Crafts for step-by-step instructions!

Stay tuned for more fun party ideas!
