The Top Ways to Celebrate Classroom Parties

You have had a hard year. Your students have too! 

Celebrate the end of 2020 in style with these fun classroom party ideas.

Zoom Party Ideas for the Classroom 

Are you able to mail something to your students? Do you have students picking up supplies, materials, and resources? 

You can grab something individually wrapped and send it to your students to have a special treat during your meeting!
  • Drink hot cocoa together
  • Eat popcorn
  • Send home or deliver a “party-in-a-bag” (popcorn, cocoa, bingo card, craft materials, candy cane, or other goodies/activities to use on party day)

Want to keep it hassle-free, friend? 

Here's a few dress-up and dress-down ideas and activities that you can do on a virtual meeting:
  • Wear pajamas 
  • Wear fancy clothes
  • Dance to music
  • Play Simon Says or Dance and Freeze 
  • Bring a stuffed animal for story time
  • Do a directed drawing 

Socially-Distanced Party Ideas for the Classroom

Want to spread some good cheer this holiday season? I can't think of a better way than to:
  • Make cards for family or nursing/senior living facility 

You'll need to deliver or mail the cards to the facility. It's a little job for you but will bring so much joy to this community who has been affected so deeply this year. It will also spread the message of gift GIVING too!

Here's some more ideas that you might like:
  • Do a craft or craftivity
  • Watch a movie
  • Decorate cookies
  • Play games
    • Bingo
    • Pictionary
  • Eat individually wrapped snacks

Are you ready for a cute treat for your students for their Winter Party?

  • Serve rootDEER floats, for each student use:
    • 2 candy canes for antlers,
    • vanilla ice cream for face,
    • cherry for nose, and 
    • root beer served in a plastic cup!
