I’ve been slacking as a hostess lately. Apart from our girls’ train party and my husband’s Murder Mystery birthday party, we haven’t had many people over this year! It could be because I’m an introvert, and I guard my house (my safe space, my retreat, my refuge) closely.
Or maybe it’s because I don’t like to clean. 😉
But when we do have people over, I try to make it nice. And one of the rituals I have is that I bring out the “good soap.” Such a silly ritual, right? But our guests deserve the nice soap. My girls and their overly zealous pumping can use the plain, everyday soap the other days of the week.
So, when I was selected to write for the Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day® campaign, I knew I had to mention my “good soap” obsession. Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day® soap is OBVIOUSLY the good soap. I’ve always loved this brand. Cleaners that smell nice but aren’t filled with harsh, stinky chemicals!
The other thing I like to do for our littlest house guests is to have some sort of activity. Usually this is something hands-on and sensory-oriented, but sometimes I want something mess-free and EASY—especially if it’s a large party with lots of kids!
Free Christmas Printables
This Christmas activity placemat could be put at the table setting of each little dinner guest at Christmas dinner or your next Christmas party.
And who doesn’t love fill-in-the-blank (in the style of MadLibs) stories? My preschooler doesn’t know the parts of speech yet (few do, right?), so I modified my instructions so that it would be more age-appropriate for little ones.
It was perfect for my four-year-old. She loved thinking up “something silly” (hokey jokey pokey) and thinking about “smelling” all of her friends.
