How To Keep The Kids Entertained At A Holiday Party, From Sandra Lee (VIDEO)

When it comes to holiday entertaining, sometimes it can be difficult to keep both the kids and adults happy at the same party. Luckily, I had the chance to ask Sandra Lee, Editor-in-chief of Sandra Lee magazine, for a quick and easy solution when she stopped by to chat on Mondays with Marlo.

Sandra recommends creating two distinct, separate spaces so that adults can drink and serve alcohol safely, and kids can have fun in their own special area. She suggests using fun, ornate glassware for kids and using sparkling apple cider or cranberry juice instead of soda for a bubbly, kid-friendly surprise.

Another great idea she mentioned was to set up a do-it-yourself, non-alcoholic drink bar for kids, so they can choose a special garnish (like cinnamon sticks), juice flavor and cup to make a signature sipper!
