Games, craft and food ideas for 2011 fall and Halloween classroom parties
Didn't we just put away the Valentines Day decorations? With Halloween on the horizon, my kids and yours are looking forward to classroom parties at the end of the month. Check out Springfield Moms contributor Lauren Coleman's ideas below.
Pass the Pumpkin: Have students gather in a circle. Pass a small pumpkin gourd around the circle with music playing. Try and find some classics like "Monster Mash" or "Ghostbusters" or "The Addams Family theme." When the music stops the child with the pumpkin is out. Continue until there is only one person left.
Eyeball Relay: Have students get into teams of 4 or 5. Have teams participate in a relay race where they need to carry the “eyeball” on the spoon. Team members must pass off the eyeball onto the spoons without using their hands. Materials needed: Ping Pong balls with an eye drawn on them. Plastic Spoons.
Mummy Wraps: This is an oldie but a goody! In teams of 4, have the students wrap one teams member up as a Mummy. First team to finish wins. Materials: Rolls of Toilet Paper.
Guess How Many Candy Corns? Fill a jar with candy corn. Make sure to count how many pieces you put in. Children take turns guessing how many pieces are in the jar. The student with the closest guess gets the jar. Materials: Candy Corn. Jar.
Caramel Apple: Slice the apples ahead of time and put the caramel dip into individual cups.
