Last weekend we had the most amazing Christmas party at our church. It was a Polar Express Themed event and the decorations were simply magical (not to mention the delicious dinner, hot cocoa, and cookies). I was a part of the planning committee which was headed by our fearless leader, Cindy, of the Jenkins Kid Farm blog. Cindy dreamed everything up and pulled it all off, everyone had such a wonderful time!
As part of the committee I had two specific jobs (besides our crafting days to make all of the centerpieces). These jobs were: 1. Make a Polar Express Train and 2. Make tags for the kids' Christmas bells. Since I have already made these cute tags, I thought I'd share them here on my blog with all of you! These make a perfect little Christmas gift or handout or favors for kiddos if you are planning a party or if you have a classroom (or group) of kids you want to give something to this month. To print the tags, simply click here or on the image below.
Aren't they cute? The kids loved getting these from Santa at our party. I think our boys are going to hang them on our tree!
If you look closely you can see Cash is already holding his bell in this picture with Santa Claus. These were happy and excited boys!
In case you were wondering what the party looked like, here is a quick shot I took before everyone started coming in. We had a fog machine behind the train so the whole room had a super ethereal feel to it. Afterall, it was supposed to be the North Pole!
This really only shows half of everything, as the foyer and another room were decorated spectacularly as well. If Cindy decides to post about the party on her blog I will make sure to link it up here!
And here is the train we built, my other party responsibility. Didn't it turn out great?!! The chair is where Santa sat to greet the kids. Cash really wanted to take this train home but we didn't have our truck with us to transport it. So to make up for it, we set him on top of the train and the young men pushed him all around the room when the party was over. He was one happy, happy little boy.
Not sure anyone can top this party next year!
