Christmas in July Party for Kids

We held our second annual Christmas in July party today. This year, we added some fun and did Christmas Eve in July too. Yesterday we took a trip to Bronner's Christmas Wonderland in Frankenmuth and watched Elf. This is the photo board we made for the two-day celebration. 
When the kids woke up today, we had tree waffles. 

We made fake snowballs out of equal parts of cornstarch and shaving cream. 

I made a pan of brownies and cut them out with a circle cookie cutter. I frosted the brownie circles, added a marshmallow, some fondant for the scarves, buttons, and nose, and frosted on arms and a face. 

Then we made frozen hot chocolate. (I put two packages of hot chocolate mix, about 15 ice cubes, and about a cup of milk in the blender. Then I topped each cup with Redi-whip. This made three cups of frozen hot chocolate.)

Christmas wouldn't be complete without some presents. (Our Elf on the Shelf even came back for the celebration today. He is sitting on our summer tree.)

For dinner we made candy cane cheese bread. 

We wrote letters to Santa for the Elf on the Shelf to take back to the North Pole. 

We finished the day watching Christmas Vacation.
