If your little one has a winter birthday then a penguin theme party can be really cute. The theme is suitable for both boys and girls. This inspiration board that I have put together is for a little girl’s birthday party, but the ideas could easily be adapted for a boy by simply changing the colour scheme. For more penguin party inspiration take a look at my board on Pinterest.

Kids (and maybe some adults too!) will have fun writing a Christmas wish list on this free printable design by Paperspice. It will also be a good opportunity for kids to practice their handwriting. If they change their mind, then simply print the sheet again and let them write a new list. You can download the free printable PDF file by clicking on the link below. The file has two 5×7 lists per sheet. Just print the file on US letter or A4 bright white paper and then trim the lists to size using the printed guidelines. Have fun with this free printable, but please remember that the file is for personal (non-commercial) use only.
