  • Decoration: Apart from the decorated Christmas tree, decorate your party venue with traditional Christmas embellishments that will set the mood of a Christmas carnival.

  • Party activities: Your small guests should not feel bored even for a second. To boost up their enthusiasm, set up a space called 'Santa Workshop' for kids, where they can 'work'.

The children will love to dig into the bowls to get their share of eatables. You can add even more sweetness by including some candy bars.
  • Party game (for kids): Children love to play fun-filled party games. 'Snow blowers' challenge' is a popular party game which is best suited for the Christmas carnival theme. The game goes like this- four large paper cups are decorated with Christmas wire ribbons with the open end upwards. Now, the cups are kept half-filled with candy canes, chocolate mints and colored pencils. Next, each player is assigned a paper towel, decorated like the paper cups. A ping pong ball is placed in front of each of the players. Now, the players are asked to gently blow through their tube to get the ping-pong 'snow' ball rolling across the table into one of the paper cups. If the ball rolls down the edge, the player's chance is over. If the ball makes it into one of the cups, the players get to pick a prize from that cup. The game continues till all the cups are empty. This game keeps the small guests busy during the Christmas carnival theme party.
