I'm a bit late with this photos as we had the party over a week ago! Anyway here they are now - the so-called "Children's" Christmas Party - for young and old! With an appearance by Santa too of course.
Above one of the classic party games - pass the parcel! There are two versions, one for the children and one for the adults. The children win sweeties, the adults win....alcohol of course!
Below - the snowball game. Two teams, the winning team has the most snowballs in the buckets! Um... ok rolled up paper balls in the buckets!
Then the snowball and spoon race - chocolate snowball on a spoon! Well we don't get much snow in Orkney!
And another classic game - er - limbo dancing!
Then it was time for Santa to arrive.....
There was time for a supper and then the dancing! The children learn the traditional Scottish Dances at school so they were trying out some of these at the party....
Now the children are older they get either money from Santa or "construction" gifts like Lego, or crafty gifts. But one wee lassie still got a doll..... and very happy she seems with it too!
