From the Inside Flap

Let's Party! These two simple words create anticipation and excitement in the minds of children, but can be overwhelming to the party planner. As classroom teachers and parents ourselves we too felt overwhelmed when we had to plan parties for our students. No on wants a ho-hum party with activities that have been used over and over again. So what's the alternative?

Parties with Pizzazz was created in response to parents and teachers who need guidance in developing creative party ideas. Parties with Pizzazz makes party planning exciting, interactive and most of all easy.

Parties with Pizzazz is unique in that it plans a party from start to finish. The party begins by involving everyone in a group activity called a mixer. then the student get involved in a team builder, which separates the children into small groups. Within these small groups, the students continue the party by creating crafts, playing games and making treats.

Even though Parties with Pizzazz was intended for classroom use the activities can be adapted for non-classroom groups of children, birthday parties, neighborhood get-togethers, community events, church groups and more. Have fun creating memorable events with children.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Do you get cold feet when your child's teacher asks you to help plan the next classroom party? Does the thought of creating a Valentine's Day game for a class of seven year olds leave you frozen in fear? Are you a party mom but lack the creativity to bring a craft idea to the classroom? Or are you just plain bored with doing the same old same old at every single class party?

Marci Mohan, Jeanne Palmer, and Peggy Simenson have you covered. With their new classroom party resource guide, PARTIES WITH PIZZAZZ, they introduce dozens of unique and creative games, crafts, and snacks designed to get your classroom partying down!

PARTIES WITH PIZZAZZ is split into parties revolving around traditional holiday themes - Halloween, Winter, and Valentines Day - and is split again into "Mixers" (large group activities designed to ramp up the party atmosphere), "Team Builders" (division of the large group into several smaller, more manageable ones), "Games," "Crafts," and "Treats."

Mohan, Palmer, and Simenson work together to create unique party activities that are fun and inexpensive, such as:

*Loop the Hoop (requiring two hula hoops and some crepe paper)

*Counting confetti (requiring only snowflake confetti and plastic snack bags)

*Graham cracker gifts (a fun and inexpensive treat the kids will love making)

What's more, the authors provide you with templates, patterns, and samples in the back of the book for easy and convenient implementation of their ideas. All that is needed is a willing spirit and a few eager children.
