“The Polar Express” Pajama Party

This event is for the kids: a movie night in their pajamas! The movie for the event is “The Polar Express” as it’s a perfect film for the winter season.

All the children - and parents too - are going to simply love this event. Ask the children to come in their pajamas and also bring along their blankets, pillows, and small stuffed toys for cuddling! 

Prep and Planning

Time the event around six in the evening: well before children’s bed-times. If they get sleepy during the movie it will spoil the fun.

Arrange a large open space for the kids so they’re able to lie down and watch the movie. Also arrange mats, rugs, or a carpet to make the floor comfortable.

A big screen is a must. Bring out the magic in the film in larger than TV format by renting a projector screen if you don’t already have one in your resident community.

Get the heating going! If your space is chilly in afternoons and evenings, consider turning up the heat an hour in advance. You can also renting a couple of portable heaters to warm up the space for the kids.

For refreshments, plan hot cocoa, buttered popcorn, and goodie bags of other snacks and candies.

***TIP*** The goodie-bags and refreshment table can be decorated in a Christmas theme which will add to the festive movie night experience.

Pre- or Post-Movie Activities

A letter-writing station can be set up in a corner for the kids can write letters to Santa. Put out papers, pencils, crayons, envelopes, festive stickers, and tape so children can use their imagination and get creative with their letters!

***TIP*** Later, these letters can be given back to parents.

Similarly, a snowflake craft station is another enjoyable activity. For this kids activity station, you’ll need wooden craft sticks, ornaments or gems to decorate the snowflakes, feathers, snowflake shaped stickers, silver or ice-blue glitter, and glue.

All in all, the movie night, snacks, and crafts will be a memorable winter holiday-themed event for the kids in your community.
