Fairy Tale Party Plans! We wanted students to be a big part of planning the party to end our work on fairy tales. To start, students were asked to brainstorm the parts of "an excellent party". They came up with all of the things we were hoping they would, including: music, food, games, dressing up, 'loot bags' and decorations. Then we put them to work to make some of the items needed, including invitations and games.


Invitations:

Since we were all invited to the party (and time was limited!), we decided to make posters to 'advertise' the party. We started by looking at store bought invitations to see what important info was needed, we made a list and then students worked in groups to make the posters.

Games:

Students made a few fairy tale versions of "Pin the Tale on the Donkey" which were hung with blindfolds ready to be played.

We also had a few "Roll-a-?" games set-up (the 'key' sheets, blank paper, pencils and dice).

Crafts:

Students were invited to make pencil wands and to decorate foam crowns.

Treats:

Yum! Mrs. C picked up a fairy tale cupcake cake and juice. We served it with ice cream and cherry Nibs!

For the music, we played a cd featuring songs from Disney fairy tale movies. Most students and the staff came dressed as a fairy tale character and guests left with a loot bag full of treats. All in all a great party! Nicely done, Mrs. C's grades 1s and 2s!
