Creation Station | Christmas Party Ideas | Christmas Activities For Kids

We’re enjoying getting Boo all excited about the basics of Christmas.  We’ve put up our tree, made our cards and are slowly working our way through making some gifts for family.

One of the things that we always did when I was little was to leave out a snack for Father Christmas and his reindeer.  On Christmas morning we would wake up to find bits of left over carrot and crumbs from the eaten mince pies :)

For today’s activity I thought that I would get Boo to make something extra special for 'Santa' and his little herd of helpers.

What You’ll Need










  • Porridge oats
  • Glitter – whatever colours you like
  • Plastic bags and fasteners – we used sweet bags and loom bands

This was a lovely activity as you simply need to mix everything together (oats and glitter).  We got time to sit down and talk about why we were making the reindeer food and enjoy a glittery 'cooking' session.

Stir, Stir, Stir!

So when Christmas Eve arrives we’ll be outside with our reindeer food making sure our lawn is twinkling away for Ruldolph and his friends…..

“Sprinkle on the lawn at night, the moon will make it sparkle bright.  As Santa’s reindeer fly and roam, this will guide them to your home… “

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Activity Time: 10 minutes

Day #83 DONE! 17 to go!

What a lovely afternoon

What a lovely afternoon. The children throughly enjoyed themselves. Not only a party but great crafts to take home. And, best of all, especially for a home party. They were so absorbed in their task. All you could her is them humming along to the music!!!

excellent party with Sarah

We had a wonderful party with Sarah from Sunbury Creation Station. She calmly and smoothly ran the party for 15 five year olds and kept them all engaged. The activities were lovely and the kids were thrilled with the lovely treasure boxes and model animals that they got to take home. Sarah made everything very easy for me and was super professsional. Thanks very much!
