Planning a children’s Christmas disco

With Christmas fast approaching, its a great time to start thinking about the upcoming celebrations. And if you’re planning on hosting a children’s disco this year, now is a good time to start getting organised. Mr Stix is an award winning children’s entertainer who can bring fun and laughter to any children’s event across the North West, from Lancashire, to Merseyside, and Manchester. And this is his guide to planning a children’s Christmas disco.

Planning a children’s Christmas disco

There are a couple of things to consider for planning a children’s Christmas disco. Especially, if you want it to be a success. These include:

  • party games
  • music
  • decorations

Party games

A children’s disco wouldn’t be complete without party games.  And you should base your choice of games on the age of your audience:

  • 6-8 yr olds- simple party games with straight forward rules and a lot of fun should be the order of the day here. Try Santa says, a simple remix of Simon says. Or even a Christmas variation of musical chairs. Either way, the children already know the rules, so they can concentrate on having fun.
  • 8-14 yr olds- at this age more competitive games can be a lot of fun. Why not split your guests into teams so they can compete against one another in the Christmas Olympics? Snowball dash is a good variation of the egg and spoon race, using a cotton wool ball instead of an egg to make a snowball pile at the other end.


You can’t have a disco without music! Choose popular catchy songs that the children will know, and mix in a fair amount of Christmas songs too, to really help with the Christmas spirit.


To make it feel like a Christmas disco, and not a generic disco, you should get some decorations to fill the venue with Christmas spirit! Make sure it looks the part before your guests arrive, and they will be captivated with the transformation.
