The combination of short and long words helps younger children identify and recognize letter combinations. It’s also a fun and easy way to expand your child’s vocabulary.

Easy Christmas Party Activities for Kids

Home or school Christmas parties are beloved by children everywhere. December can be a challenging month for parents and school staff because kids are so excited about the holiday.

It is nice to have some simple sit down activities for kids to work on during part of the party. 

After the Christmas word search is completed here are some other great activities they can work on.


  • Use these free Christmas mask templates and let the kids make masks that look like Santa, a reindeer or an elf.
  • Younger kids would enjoy reading Twas the Night Before Christmas and then do a footprint craft as a gift for parents.
  • Get some plain colored butcher paper and let the kids create their own wrapping paper to wrap a gift for a family member. It is so fun to see what kind of wrapping paper the kids choose to create!
  • Bring plain sugar cookies to the party and let kids “decorate” their own cookie. It helps to give each child a small cookie decorating kit so things don’t get too messy.
