Good morning crafty wonders:
As you may remember, I am Celebration Mom for 120 six graders. Im really excited to do this job and even though I have three grown children, I never had the chance to orchestrate anything but be snack mom at school. So I’ve got to go big or stay home! You might be wondering why I’m starting so early? Once again I will be on crutches for the holidays so since I’ll have a lot of down time I might as well use it wisely.
Now here is what I’m thinking? A winter dance? I will need decorations of course. I am also thinking ice cream social. Winter equals cold plus ice cream. Theme?
Now for the craft, that’s where you guys come in. At every function there is to be some things the kids can purchase with their gator bucks. I’m thinking but I haven’t come up with anything yet and I need to get all my supplies before November 1st.
Crafters, what ya got?
Hey there… When my son was younger and he had special events at school I use to make and decorate cupcakes for his class but I always wanted to do something extra like what your doing I have a few suggestions 1)decorate mini mirrors with washi tape 2) pencil holders 3)spray paint little book shelves and stencil designs on them they can use their gator bucks to purchase the items and you can buy in bulk or at the dollar store let me know how it turns out if you decide to do it.. have fun always
Thanks Deanndrascloset. I like your suggestions. This is their first year having lockers, all three would be something they might want.
6th graders are a tough crowd; trying to be teenagers but still really just kids! And so capable! Will give your question some thought and talk to my GF at church tomorrow…she does fun stuff w/kids daily. I can’t come up on my own with creative anything. Best I had was art t-shirts; fabric markers. Few stencils available where they could have a starting point and go on their own after they lay out a basic design.
You always have great ideas. Unfortunately I have a little over an hour during school to throw my thing
