This year The 65th Crayon suggest that all crayons, toys, and people set aside traditional Christmas Caroling and go A-Coloring instead—opt for a Christmas Coloring Party.
“It saves on wear and tear of winter clothes,” our experienced funmaker said. “And it’s a great way for adults, children, toys, and crayons to interact in joyful celebration.”
“Not everyone can sing, you know," said Red Violet, the 65th's GreatUncle, who's screechy voice seemed proof of what she was saying. "But anyone can color.”
“It’s kind of like bowling. Yeah,” said little Cinnamon. “You don't have to be good at coloring for it to be fun.”
The 65th Crayon offered this plan for A-Coloring Party Fun.
Ingredients and Materials:
crayons, markers, colored pencils, paints, paper, coloring books
lime vodka, egg nog, other adult beverages, chocolate milk, milk, juice, cookies, treats
- Fill several ice-cube trays with lime vodka and allow to freeze into cubes.
- Cover all drawing surfaces with newspaper or other protective materials.
- Have plenty of cookies and treats for kids and adults to eat and napkins for clean up when they spill.
- Have a bed ready for Uncle Sonny to sleep off too many eggnogs.
When guests arrive:
- Put out treats and coloring materials.
- Offer children milk or juice and treats.
- Offer adults eggnog over lime vodka ice cubes. Make them try it. It’s really good.
