End of School Class Party Ideas

  1. 1. End-of-Year PARTY & GIFT IDEAS
  2. 2. End-of-Year Must-Haves from magazine Our exclusive guide for class parents has all you need to help your students celebrate the last days of school. Read on to find silly (and smart!) party activities, class-friendly nibbles, and heartfelt gift ideas for the teachers who made this an unforgettable school year. PHOTOGRAPH BY SABRINA HELAS Launch a rocket—without losing it! To do: Thread two lengths of string through a decorated toilet paper tube. Have the students stand a few feet apart, then take turns quickly spreading the ribbons apart to propel the tube toward their partner.
  3. 3. ■ Ask the teacher for the class party start and end times. ■ Create a VolunteerSpot class party sign-up for parents to help with: • Decorating and setup • Snacks and beverages • Crafts, games, and activities ■ Alert snack parents about food allergies. ■ Keep decorations simple—think paper tablecloths and balloons. ■ Don't forget cleanup supplies (trash bags, paper towels, etc.). ■ Use a kid's wagon to carry supplies through campus. ■ Remind parents to set phones to silent. ■ Ask a parent to take pictures. ■ Have FUN! The kids will have a special day no matter what happens! Room-Parent Party Checklist ✔
  4. 4. Save Time With FREE Class Party Sign-Ups! • More parents pitching in means more FUN for everyone! • Quick, easy setup for room parents and teachers. Parents choose what to bring and how to help from anywhere, on any device. • No passwords needed! • Plus, automated reminders keep everyone on track! Try it now: VolunteerSpot.com
  5. 5. Fun Class Activities Paper Airplane Race Put kids' engineering skills to the test with an energetic game! Start with a stack of paper (any kind will do). Have the students fold an airplane, encouraging them to experiment with their design to get one that'll really fly (click here for our basic template). Then, in an open area, mark start and finish lines with plastic cones or other bright objects. At “Go,” the players launch their planes toward the finish. When the aircraft land, players race to toss them toward the line again, continuing until both planes and players reach their final destination. Repeat until a lemonade refueling stop is needed.

  6. 6. Keep the kids happy at your holiday party with a no-mess project. Using our template, cut face pieces and hooves from dark and light brown felt. Adhere each hoof with dou- ble-sided tape to a packaged candy cane. Letters on the Lawn Practice teamwork and vocab with a super-sized spelling activity. Cut out 72 eight-inch squares from cardboard or heavy card stock (for a more permanent set, you could have the squares cut from Masonite at a home-improvement store). Paint a letter on each square, using a stencil if desired. Make five of each letter, excluding Q and X (you only need one each of those). To play, stack the tiles facedown in a few piles. Give each team a bin and have them pick ten squares. The first team places letters on the ground to form a word, then draws a corresponding number of new tiles. (If they're stumped, they can skip their turn and swap up to five tiles for new ones.) The next team lays out a word that connects with the first, crossword style. When the tiles run out and no more words can be formed, the game ends. The team left with the fewest tiles wins. PHOTOGRAPH BY JOE POLILIO
  7. 7. Have a Ball Let the kids make a splash—and soak up number skills! Make five to ten flags by sandwiching skewers within folded lengths of duct tape; write numbers on them with a permanent marker (these will be solutions to the problems; choose them based on the kids’ math-skill level). Lay hula hoops on the ground and insert the flags as shown. Fill the balloons with water (at least two balloons per student), then write equations with answers that match the numbered flags. To play, each student picks a balloon, then, standing a few feet back, tosses it at the target marked with the correct solution. A hit scores a point. The player with the most points wins.

  8. 8. End-of-Year Party Snacks Chocolate Chalkboards Mark the end of the school year with edible slates for every student. Use a toothpick to etch a message into the smooth side of a chocolate bar. Sprinkle the bar with confectioners’ sugar, then gently rub it into the etched letters. Wipe away the excess sugar with a damp paper towel. Roll caramel chew candies into thin strips and trim them to fit the edges. Moisten the strips with a damp paper towel and press them into place. Add white sprinkles for chalk. PHOTOGRAPH BY AARON DYER
  9. 9. School Bus Sandwich This easy snack is guaranteed to bring miles of smiles! For each sandwich, cut a slice of bread (we used pumpernickel) into a rectangle, reserving a strip of crust. Trim a slice of yellow cheese to fit the bread as shown. Cut another slice of cheese for the hood. Use the reserved crust for a fender. Cut headlights and grill strips from white cheese and set them in place. Use the pointy end of a grape tomato for each red light. Slice more tomato into a stop sign and smile (feel free to skip this step if you've got a large class!). Finish with black olive tires, trimmed to lie flat, and pupils (we punched ours out with a straw). PHOTOGRAPH BY JOE POLILIO
  10. 10. Frosty Fruit Wands Watch this healthy make-ahead frozen treat magically disappear on a sizzling hot day. Use a star cookie cutter (ours was 1½ inches) to cut a shape from a thick slice of kiwi, cantaloupe, or pineapple. Thread several grapes onto a bamboo skewer, then add the star to the top. Place on a baking sheet, cover with plastic, and freeze until hardened, about two hours. Keep refrigerated until serving. PHOTOGRAPH BY TIM MACKAY
  11. 11. Fruit Cup Grads Kids will love this simple, allergy-free snack. Cut 3¼-inch squares from colored card stock and add a message with paint pen. Punch a hole in one corner and secure two short lengths of ribbon as shown. With glue dots, attach the mortar- boards to the top of fruit or applesauce cups, and add a pair of self-adhesive googly eyes. PHOTOGRAPH BY TIM MACKAY
  12. 12. Teacher-Appreciation Checklist ✔ Keep it simple and meaningful. ✔ Survey the teacher for likes and dislikes. ✔ Check school policies on gifts. ✔ Get lots of parents involved with teacher appreciation activities like: • End of school brunch/potluck • Class group gift • Digital card from parents • Class photo album/scrapbook ✔ Encourage students to write their teacher a card. ✔ Use free, online class party sign-ups.

  13. 13. Teacher Gift Ideas Art-Covered Journal Jazz up a storebought notebook with your child's doodles. Place an open notebook on the back of a piece of artwork. Using a pencil, trace around the book leaving a ½-inch border. Cut out, using scissors. Coat the outside of the notebook with a glue stick. Holding the notebook open, press the spine down on the back of the artwork, then press down the covers. Smooth wrinkles. Cut out a notch at the top and bottom of the cover’s spine, and cut a diagonal line at the four corners. Glue down each corner, then fold over and glue down each edge along the inside of the book. Then repeat the process with clear Con-Tact paper. PHOTOGRAPH BY LUCY SCHAEFFER
  14. 14. Garden of Gratitude For a special surprise, have the class fill a box with words of appreciation for a beloved teacher. Download our flower circle template from (find it at familyfunmag.com/printables; scroll down to May 2013). Make enough copies to have one flower per student, then cut out the cir- cles. In class (but—shh!—it's a surprise!), give one to each student with a note asking them to decorate their flower as they like and write a thank-you message on the flip side. Once you've collected all the personalized flowers, put them inside a decorated 4-inch-round papier-mâché box (found at many craft stores). Give it to the teacher along with a gift card to an office supply store or a coffee shop, if you like. PHOTOGRAPH BY MARK MANTEGNA
  15. 15. Desktop Vases These handmade vessels are just the right size for a teacher's workspace. Help your child use a large marker to roll softened white polymer clay (such as Fimo or Sculpey) into an ⅛-inch-thick slab. Then use a second color to add designs: Press a block of color onto one section for a dipped look, small balls for polka dots, or snakes for stripes. Roll the slab smooth again. Help your child use a clay tool or plastic knife to cut a 2- by 2½-inch rectangle from the slab. Loosely wrap the rectangle around a finger and smooth the seam closed to form a cylinder. To create a base, place the cylinder on a 1/8-inch-thick remnant of clay and cut around it. Smooth the edges of the base to the cylinder, and seal up any holes. Press and smooth the clay walls to shape the vase as desired. Bake the vase according to the clay package directions. Add flowers to the vase before you child gives it to his teacher.

  16. 16. Marbleized Tissue Box The silver lining to classroom achoos! Note: Nail polish is permanent and can emit fumes. Wear a smock and latex gloves. and make sure you work in a well-ventilated area. 1. Cover your work surface with newspaper. Place a strip of duct tape across the top inside opening of an unfinished wooden tissue box. Press it firmly to make it watertight. 2. Fill a bucket or plastic bin with water, leaving a few inches at the top (the bin should be deep enough to dip the entire box). 3. Choose two to three shades of nail polish. Working very quickly (an adult helper comes in handy), drip color onto the water’s surface (it’s better to use the brush than to pour it). Add enough nail polish to cover the entire surface, varying the colors as you go. 4. Hold the box upside down from the inside, and dip it into the water, right up to (but not over) the bottom edge. Pull it out quickly, and gently place it right side up on the newspaper to dry, touching the outside as little as possible. Let dry completely. P.S. If you’re making multiples, clean the water between dips: Drag a piece of cardboard across the surface to pick up leftover nail polish. PHOTOGRAPH BY MICHAEL PIAZZA
