Keep the holiday party decorations simple without making a huge fuss over them. Children can help with the holiday party decorations and feel like they are a part of the party preparations.
Dig into a crafting box and retrieve arts and crafting supplies such as lace, tulle, card stock, tissue paper, ribbons, and more, to create a one of a kind banner. Clip art images for the holidays are easy to find and make it easy to create an appropriate banner. For example, make a snowflake banner by cutting out snowflakes from white card stock paper. Once the snowflakes are cut, punch holes in the corners and tie together using strings or ribbons. Once the snowflakes are strung together, and then hang the snowflakes in the desired location. The holidays begin with Halloween, so be sure to cut out plenty of holiday decorations beginning with this occasion and on into the New Years Eve event. Ensure the printer has plenty of color ink or have color in the images using crayons or paint.
Add various decorative touches to the holiday party table by cutting out clip art images or using felt for imagery. Just cut out the chosen images and pin them onto the tablecloth. For example, a Valentines Day tablecloth can be made by using a red, pink, or white tablecloth. Cut out hearts, cupid silhouettes and other V-Day images and pin them on randomly on the tablecloth. The same can be done for any holiday such as use stars for Fourth of July, snowflakes for Christmas, and Turkeys for Thanksgiving.
