Classroom Party Idea

I don't know about you, but ever year I get suckered into being a room mom. Now that the holidays are coming, I am trying to be a little more prepared for the classroom parties. I found this darling idea and wanted to share it with you. Our class will be watching the "Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown". I thought it would be fun to put the kids popcorn in these cute little bags. I'll go a little crazy and in a little chocolate. Gotta have chocolate with your popcorn, right?

Pumpkin Treat Bags -Fill orange mini craft bags with candy. Twist the top of the bag up into a stem. Pull floral tape off roll and stretch it so it becomes sticky. Wrap floral tape around stem, starting at the top and moving downward. Rip off take, leaving 3 to 4 extra inches hanging on the bottom. Twist extra tape into tendril, wrapping it around finger until it curls.

Sucker! Just kidding. I actually wish that I was a little more involved this year. After being room mom, not being anything is nice, but I miss getting to know the kids and having fun with them. I also miss getting to know the teacher on a different level. Have fun at your party. Call me!

Great idea!! I like the idea of watching a movie too! We always have to plan 4 games and rotate. A movie sounds much calmer!! Thanks for the great ideas.
