Do you do Christmas Crackers? I was introduced to these by my British/Canadian husband's family. They're a fun British tradition in which you pull the crackers apart with a partner, making a loud "pop", then get a prize from inside. There's also usually a paper crown to put on. In any case, here's a really neat twist on the idea -- with this "Concerto Crackers" set, each of the eight crackers has a different-pitched whistle inside, and there are play-by-number music sheets so your group can play songs together!
Also, with their black, white, and red color scheme, these don't have to be limited to Christmas. I think they'd be great for a child's birthday party.
