Challenge your party to invent a gondolier song, it could be themed around the guests or Italy. They then have to perform it in their biggest most operatic voice. A prize could be given for the best performance and another for the best song.
Using pasta to add texture to a picture is a fun activity for all ages. You can draw or paint a picture then glue pasta on to the picture. The pasta can also be coloured. It could be people with pasta hair, or you could try to make the Leaning Tower of Pisa out of penne! Holiday activities with a twist.
Create a treasure map of your home. Hide mini treats and mark on the map, or to make it harder give clues to find the 'treasure'. Children can prepare this the day before creating and colouring in the map.
