Even in the summer heat, there are so many ways to pull out a few pieces of old Christmas decor and then turn your party into a DIY winter wonderland. And if anyone teases you for leaving your tree up months and months after Christmas ended, you can now say this was the plan all along.
Giant Ornaments- Grab a few of the largest bouncy balls you can find from the store. Preferably at least a beach ball size, but ideally exercise ball size. Paint to look like a Christmas ornament, paint a plastic cup silver or gold to add to the top, and cut two holes on the top of the cup to put a string through to hang your giant masterpiece. Cute for hanging on trees in the yard!
Santa’s Vacation Table Decoration- Fill a glass jar or container a quarter of the way with sand. Next, create Santa’s dream vacation and decorate with seashells, ornaments, a little Santa, and even toothpick umbrellas!
Water Balloon Snowball Fight- Fill the blue and white balloons to be stand-in snowballs. This is a great activity for kids who love Frozen and Elsa to pretend they have magic ice and water powers!
Frosty the Sandman- You’re more likely to be at a beach or sandy place than near snow right now, so challenge the kids to see who can build the best snowman made of sand! Find some sticks, seashells, a baseball cap and you could even try to unearth a scarf from last winter to make your sandman masterpiece! (Or use this snowman decorating kit with everything you’ll need to stick in the sand snowman!
Ugly T-shirt Contest- Nobody would be caught dead wearing a thick, itchy sweater in the middle of a hot summer, but you can challenge everyone’s creativity to see who can make the wackiest Christmas T-shirt. All you need is some glue, fabric markers, and anything from tinsel, pom poms, felt, or small ornaments. Bonus points for a Christmas themed Hawaiian shirt!!
Sweet Drinks and Treats:
Adult Cranberry Refreshments- A delicious and cold refreshment for the adult guests that’s super easy to make! Just four ingredients: vodka, ginger kombucha, fruit juice with cranberries sprinkled on top.
Frozen hot chocolate- whip out your very favorite hot chocolate recipe or cocoa powder, cool, then pour into popsicle molds or an ice cube tray for a homemade chilly chocolate treat.
