Cookie Exchange Christmas Party

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

We've all heard about and played "dirty santa" at Christmastime but, have you ever heard of a cookie exchange party?  The first weekend of December, my sister-in-law hosted a cookie exchange party for her Sunday School class moms and their kids.  The decor theme was Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory and each child was asked to bring a dozen cookies (there were twelve kids) to exchange with the other children.  I put boxes together for each child to hold the cookies they exchanged with.

After the kids exchanged cookies, they made Christmas cards for the shut ins that are members of the church.  

I think the kids had a great time and this is now an annual event.  Hope you enjoy the pictures.

I love these reindeer cookies that someone brought. She said they were very easy to make.

They were having so much fun!
Young and old, they all loved picking out their cookies and taking them home.

So, if you're looking for a unique party for kids... this one was easy to put on and everyone seemed to have a great time!!
