Set up a decorating station so kids (and kids at heart) can embellish gingerbread men. 

Playing With Food

A cookie decorating party is a fun way to keep the kids occupied and entertained during the holidays. Plus, the materials are inexpensive to supply for this DIY soiree.

Make Use of Your Breakfast Room

Set up your party in a contained area. Your breakfast table is the perfect place to let kids get a little messy with their gingerbread cookie creations.

Mini Aprons

Simple kid-sized aprons get a big bump in cuteness when a custom iron-on gingerbread man design is added. This is a low-cost way to create a favor for your party guests that also keeps their party clothes (relatively) clean. Download our free printable.

Craft Paper Tablecloth

Protect your table from any spills by covering it with craft paper. Use a solid black matte version and decorate the table with festive colored chalk.

Edible Centerpieces

Candy canes set into cinnamon candies make for adorable and edible centerpieces on your table.

Paint Palette Decoration

Plastic paint palettes are great for individual decoration trays. This allows each kid to have their own set of supplies and keeps arguments over the sprinkles to a minimum.

Pre-Made Cookies

Make or buy plenty of basic gingerbread men (and women!) to keep party prep simple and quick.

Easy Icing

Put icing in plain condiment bottles. This makes decorating cookies easier for little hands.

Custom Creations

A cookie decorating party is a great way to get the creative juices going! Help kids get started by giving them a run-through of the supplies.

Cups for Kids

While cookies are being made, they'll also be consumed. Serve milk in enamel cups that won'€™t break just in case of accidents.

Custom To-Go Boxes

Don't let any yumminess go to waste! Provide your guests with custom to-go boxes so they can take their creations with them when the party is over.
