Kindergarten Halloween Party

Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Archive October 2006: Kindergarten Halloween Party
By Bellajoe on Thursday, October 5, 2006 - 10:53 am:

Some how I ended up being Head Room Parent for ds's classroom Halloween party. I'm not usually one to sign up to lead or head anything, so i'm a bit nervous. I need to be organized so it is not obvious that i don't know what i am doing :) I have a list of parents to call who also signed up for the party. I"m planning on calling them with a list of things that i need someone to volunteer for. Can you think of anything that I forgot?

goodie bags

The party is the last hour of the school day. They get into their costumes at 2:00 (end of school is 3:00) and do a parade around the halls of the school. Then they come back and eat pizza and play a game or two. I figure if we have extra time, i will read a Halloween story to them to fill in the time.

Does anyone have any suggestions of games for 5 yr olds to play?

any help will be much appreciated! thank!

Instead of calling everyone I would send a note home with all of the kids with your information and good times to call you and a list of what you need. Also on the note tell the parents they are welcome to send in treats for their kids to pass out to their classmates. This will get you the help you need and you will not have to call everyone and beg for help.

oh, i wouldn't be begging for help. I guess i did not make that clear.

When we met the teacher before school, he had a list for us to sign up for the party. Several people signed up for teh Halloween party, i signed up for the "Head Room Parent" because that was the last spot left. So they know they are helping out somehow, i just have to call and ask/assign them something to do.

For the game, maybe a game of "Steal the Bacon" with a baby pumpkin or a tray of Halloween themed items shown for a minute or two and then they can recall all the items while you or the teacher write the list on the board and they can see how many items they can remember. Pin the Nose on the Jack O'Latern or pin paper pumpkins all over the room and they try to find all 30 pumpkins. HTH:)
