With your teenager's help, write down a list of the most popular songs from the past year. Write down each of these songs on separate slips of paper. During the party, gather all the teenagers in a quiet room and instruct them to each take a piece of paper from the bucket or bowl. Stand the first teenager in front of the room and set 30 seconds on a timer. It's the first teenager's job to hum the song on his slip. Once a teenager in the room successfully guesses the song, stop the clock and write down the time. This is the first contestant's time. The teenager with the best time is the winner.

Countdown Toss

Help the teenagers showcase throwing skills with a quick New Year's countdown game. Set up the teen party game by giving the first player 10 ping pong or tennis balls and having her stand 6 to 10 feet away from a plastic laundry basket. See how many "baskets" she can make while the crowd loudly counts down from 10 to 1. In the event of a tie, tell the finalists to stand farther away from the basket and play again.

Warm Cocoa Toast

Children are aware that a party means eating, drinking and merry making. So they also want to be a part of the midnight toast. You can arrange for hot cocoa in wine glass so that they get the feel of the party. You can also arrange for some soft drinks or even get some shakes so that every child has what he likes for the night.

Midnight Snack Bags

Make bags of snacks that you could hand every child attending the party at midnight. This could be the fake midnight also that you created by mock countdown. Since kids would be dancing and playing till that time, they might get hungry also by that time.

Celebrations of Christmas are marked by carols, cakes, candles and decoration of Christmas trees. The festival is joyfully celebrated by people of all religions and communities, especially in metropolitan cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Bangalore and Chennai.

Christians attend special church services and many exchange gifts, wear new clothes and decorate their homes. Nowadays, many stores and malls put up Christmas decorations, including a beautifully decorated Christmas tree.

Schools celebrate Christmas by organizing plays which depict the birth of Jesus Christ. Carols, songs and dramas make these celebrations even more joyful. All students including the non-Christian ones enthusiastically participate in such celebrations.

Customs for Christmas celebrations vary across India largely because of the local cultural influence. In South India, for instance, Christians light clay lamps on the rooftops and walls of their houses, the same way as Hindus decorate their homes during the Diwali festival.

Two little presents underneath for me,
Three silver ropes twisted around the tree,
Four colored lights shining prettily,
Five shining balls flowing silvery.
Oh, what a sight for use to see!

I made a Christmas wish for you,
For a holiday full of pleasure,
Friends and family all around,
And memories to treasure.

I wish you joy all though your holidays,
I wish you good luck that forever stays,
I wish you the love of family and friends,
I wish you the happy days that never ever ends.
Merry Christmas to you!

Christmas is a time of joy,
A time for love and cheer,
A time for making memories,
To last throughout the year

A Christmas candle is a lovely thing;
It makes no noise at all,
But softly gives itself away;
While quite unselfish, it grows small.

High Protein Vegetarian Breakfast Ideas for Kids

Breakfast is widely accepted as the most important meal of the day. And, as research suggests, it is also the meal that determines what you are going to eat for the rest of the day. Needless to say, when choosing your breakfast meal, 'healthy' is the way to go. Another consideration is eating what will cover your energy needs until the next meal is due, without the need for stimulants like coffee, soft drinks and other sugar-laden sweets.

For someone who does a lot of physical activity, protein is among the most sought-out nutrients in a meal. And, protein is great for breakfast too. It supplies you with energy to do the things you need to do while building muscle, helping with cell regeneration, and keeping you ‘full’ so you aren’t tempted to snack in between meals.

Shakes and Smoothies

Smoothies are a favorite breakfast choice for kids and can be made in a variety of ways. Place diced fruit such as peaches, bananas, mango, blueberries, raspberries or strawberries, ice and skim milk, rice milk, or vanilla soy milk in a blender and blend until smooth for a quick and healthy breakfast. For an additional shot of morning protein make a chocolate protein shake consisting of chocolate soy milk, walnuts and Greek yogurt. Adding Greek yogurt to the shake will add an additional 15 to 18 grams of protein.


Cereal comes is a wide variety of choices to satisfy the most finicky breakfast eater. A bowl of cereal, sliced banana and milk is filled with protein, fiber and vitamins, making it an excellent way to start the day. Add variety to your child's cereal by creating a breakfast sundae. Layer crunchy cereal, strawberry yogurt, sliced strawberries and blueberries in a long ice cream dish or bowl and top with 100 percent fruit spread for a yummy cold breakfast on a hot summer day.

Protein-Enriched Cold Cereal

An increasing number of food manufacturers make vegetarian cold cereal options with high protein. This simple breakfast choice is really a get-up-and-go meal; with almond or soy milk, it packs a powerful protein punch.

Dairy Products

Some of the protein rich dairy products include, whole milk, yogurt, cheese, and cottage cheese, etc. You can try various recipes using these protein rich foods; you can make milk shakes or fruit smoothies using yogurt. A layer of cheese spread on whole grain bread, or cottage cheese sandwich can provide your kid with protein as well as dietary carbohydrates.


Peanuts are loaded with protein but along with that they also contain other nutrients such as fibers, carbohydrates, and essential fat. You can serve your kids with peanut brittle which is sweeter or simply spreading peanut butter on whole grain bread can serve as a high protein and high carbohydrate breakfast for kids.

Breakfast Scramble, Minus the Eggs

While some vegetarians incorporate eggs into their diet, many choose not to eat any animal products. Firm tofu, however, can be easily substituted for eggs in a high-protein breakfast scramble. Simply crumble the tofu and saute it in vegetable oil; you can add just about any spices and vegetables, including kale and tomatoes, to increase the protein content.

Vegetables and Fruits

If your kids are vegans then there are lot of protein rich vegetables and fruits that you can provide them for breakfast. You can make veg grilled sandwiches and couple them with peanut butter or cheese for better taste. With fruits, you can either go for smoothies or can add them to a bowl of oats or cereals to increase the nutritional quotient of the breakfast. If, not a fruit dish including variety of freshly cut fruits tossed with fresh cream will also serve the purpose.
