About the Book

Holiday parties are a treat for both children and adults, but putting together a holiday-themed party may seem daunting. These plans for celebrating 16 different holidays can turn any parent into a well-prepared party-planner. Holidays covered are New Year’s Eve, Chinese New Year, Valentine’s Day, Mardi Gras, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Children’s Book Day, May Day, Cinco de Mayo, Fourth of July, Grandparent’s Day, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, and Kwanzaa.
Each party description includes suggestions and directions for themed invitations, crafts, snacks, and decorations. Also included are ideas for games, songs and other activities. Each holiday has plenty of suggestions so that the party-planner can choose the best combination. Suggestions also are given for customizing a party for a school, church, or family event attracting children of all ages (including grown-ups!). This helpful guide also provides clear and proven ideas for making any party safe, successful, and fun, and includes ideas for other special days, instructions for any-occasion games, and directions for making a piñata, a welcome addition to nearly any party.
