more classroom party ideas {halloween}

October 24, 2011

so here is what i'm planning for
classroom parties this year.
no food pictures yet, but there's some
fun ideas that were inspired by pinterest.
you can see all my pins here.

{spooky water}
make water bottles a little more fun by wrapping them with scrapbook paper.
 1) take one wrapper off and make your strips the same size.
2) i took off all the wrappers because the new labels stick to the old
glue, but you do not have to do this.
3) wrap and secure with a piece of clear tape.

{mummy juice boxes}
 the full tutorial on how to make these is here.
 as i wrapped these, i used less tape and they still looked great.
in the tutorial, it shows the top being taped,
i did this until the end when i started to run low on tape.
for the last few i didn't and i think they looked fine without it, 
so next time i would skip that step.
it took me 2 rolls of white electrical tape to do 23 boxes.

i made this monster bingo game using
the create your own monster clipart
(contact me if you are interested in purchasing
the printable version of this game-
8 unique boards and calling cards for $5)

we are also playing pumpkin bowling
(picture from pinterest)
go here for the original directions
i purchased a "funkin" to use since the party is indoors.

{favor bags}
 honesty, i can't stand favor bags.
but i know the kids like them so i got just a few items.
i added a little fun by making the toppers and also stuffing
the bags with that cheap spider web.
making the topper is so easy.
i bought favor bags that were 4 inches wide,
so i cut my scrapbook paper to be 4 inch x 4 inch and
folded them in half.
i folded the bag down to fit close to the prizes
then stapled the topper over the fold.
 i loved how this one said
"trick or treat...smell my feet..."
and i'm sure the kids will get a kick out of it!

oh and check out the invites we made for
our annual trick or treat party!
 i saw the cute witch broom treat bags martha stewart made
and i decided i could use them as invites instead!
i followed her directions (i just stuffed with tissue not candy)
and slipped the invitation strip through the slits.
i think they are so cute!
