Every year, I host Cookies with Kids—a holiday celebration where all the children in my family (nieces and nephews) come to my home to bake and decorate holiday cookies. The kids usually have a good time—although I end up doing most of the baking (they like to come in last minute to add their personal artwork to the cookies). I make sure to load the house with unique Christmas decorations in order to enhance the holiday spirit. First, there’s dinner—always an exotic food choice—I like to expose them to different types of foods. Next, they bake and decorate cookies. Finally, we cozy up to watch a holiday movie and share fun stories.
This year, I want to try something a tad bit different. I am a huge game guru—so incorporating Christmas party games is top priority this year. The kids will certainly enjoy the Christmas party games in addition to yummy cookies and holiday stories. Tis the season--can't wait for Cookies with Kids 2008!
