No holiday party is complete without some delicious treats. You can plan for some healthy snacks like fruit skewers or cheese and crackers, and also include some holiday-themed treats like candy canes, hot cocoa and gingerbread. Don’t forget to include the students grown-ups for help and donations.


Reading holiday stories can be a great way to wind down the party and get your little learners ready for their winter break. You can read classics like “The Gingerbread Man” or even some new variation of this entertaining story. (See my Amazon Store for some of my favorites.)
