Last year I hosted a craft and cookie party at my house for my older daughter and her friends. I wanted my daughter to be able to hang out with her friends and create something that they could give away to neighbors. The craft and cookie party ended up working fabulously!
cookie totes or shirt boxes
On the invitation I had each girl only bring 1 dozen cookies. I didn’t want it to be too much for anyone so I actually baked several dozen cookies to add to what they brought. Depending on how many boxes you want each girl to bring home, plan on each participant bringing 1 dozen cookies per take-home box. So if each guest brings home 3 boxes, they should bring at least 3 dozen cookies.
I chose two crafts to have ready at the party. The first craft was a gingerbread man foam ornament. We taped the ornament on the boxes to give to the neighbors. Note: Use glue-dots to attach the foam pieces if there isn’t enough time to let glue dry.
The second craft was Snowman Charm Bracelet Craft Kit (1 dz) This craft was for the girls to be able to bring home for themselves or give as a gift.
