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.Read more ›
