Balloon and yarn snowball: pop the balloon once the glue is dry.

  • Balloon and Yarn Snowballs (see photos). Blow up a balloon to a size of a softball; cut about a 2 to 3 foot of white yarn and put it in bowl of Elmer’s glue. Take out the yarn and begin wrapping it around balloon. When done wrapping — sprinkle it with white or silver glitter. Hang the balloon to dry for 24 hrs or till the glue is dry— then pop the balloon! You have this pretty snowball to hang from your ceiling or on branches. Source: www.kidsactivities.net

Games

  • Unwrap the Gift Game. This game is similar to musical chairs, in that the action starts and stops with the music. Select a present that anyone in your family would enjoy winning. Wrap the present in several layers of gift wrap. Ask everyone to sit in a circle on the floor or around a table. Turn on some music and tell family members to pass the gift around. When the music stops, the person who is holding the gift gets to remove one layer of gift wrap. Keep turning the music on and off until the gift is unwrapped. The person who peels off the last layer of gift wrap wins the gift.
