I love, love, love Thanksgiving! I just love the coziness of being at home while the turkey cooks, the parade is on, making turkey cookies with my kids and the kickoff to the Christmas season! As part of that Christmas season kickoff, our family has a tradition-we have a Polar Express party one evening during Thanksgiving weekend. Today I am going to share with you some fun Polar Express Party ideas.
Polar Express Party Ideas:
What You Need:
Tickets (Free Printable Here)
Train Whistle and Hat (if you have one)
Polar Express Theme Song
Here’s What We Do:
Everyone gets in their pajamas and is handed a ticket. We turn on the Polar Express theme song on full blast and Dad leads the procession around the house wearing the train conductor’s hat and blowing the train whistle. After the song ends Dad (the conductor) punches the tickets.
Then we settle in to watch the movie with popcorn. The hot chocolate comes out during the hot chocolate part of the movie. If they get really lucky I even put on my tap shoes.
Pretty simple, but a fun family tradition that my kids really look forward to.
