Making a black cat may be the next stunt/game for your Halloween Party.

A large black cardboard cat is cut into as many pieces as there are players.

Each child is given a piece and one by one, as they are blindfolded, they try to pin the pieces of the cat in correct position on a sheet or curtain.

If the party is a large one, there may be two teams, and the team that succeeds in putting together the most anatomically correct cat is the winner.

The day before Christmas, the grain is tied to the end of a long pole, carried into the yard, and placed near the house to attract the birds who, they believe, bring happiness and good fortune to those within. No family would consider celebrating its own Christmas until the birds had first been provided for.

Could you and your children find a more delightful way to express the spirit of Christmas than to follow these customs?
