  2. Pajama party – you can’t go wrong with this one!
  3. Natural Christmas celebration – use nature to decorate with and explore some natural crafts.
  4. Movie premier – dress things up with a fancy movie celebration. Set up a theater in the room and add some popcorn.
  5. Candy cane twist – taste test different kinds of candy canes and create something cute with the leftovers. Encourage everyone to wear red and white.
