Children are extremely excited and high energy on Christmas Eve, so active games are the best to begin with until the children become less energetic?


What About Prizes?

Children will behave much better and focus more on the games when they are going to win a prize, I recommend you consider giving a small gift to every child which participates in the games and prizes to the children who are winners. Prizes and gifts are not usually necessary for the adults unless it is in your budget, so what are good prizes to give the kids?

Christmas goodie bags filled with a variety of small inexpensive products from dollar stores are good choices, you can purchase all your prizes and gifts for the children at dollar stores without breaking your budget. Giving a gift to each child is the best strategy to prevent any child from being left out, so what are some good game to consider?

    What is Christmas really all about, the smile and cheerful look on children’s faces opening their presents knowing that Santa has been. I know that sometimes it can be difficult choosing what to buy as there is a large market out there, especially at Christmas, but i think that the kids don’t mind, as they get caught up in all the activities.
