I have a printable post all scheduled and ready for today, but our download manager is not working right. Maybe you’ve noticed? We’re working on it and hope all of our downloads will be working ASAP. But since that wasn’t going to work for this morning, and I realized we only have 5 days until class parties, I thought I’d share some ideas for class activities, just in case.


Okay…..I might be the only one…but, just in case there are other’s of you out there that have fallen behind on your carefully planned December to-do list, this is for you! Class party ideas that you can quickly throw together!

  1. Thanks for featuring our quick Minute to Win it games in this festive list! We are honored to be part of it.

  2. You could add cup stacking tree contest. Buy green plastic cups from grocery store, split class into two teams. Have first person from each team walk up to a station (desk, table, etc) and have placed a stack of 10 cups for each team. When you shout “go”, first person from each team begins to stack them on top of each other like a tree. 4 on bottom, then 3, then 2, then 1. After they complete tree, you can either 1) send them back to end of team line, and have next person in team line, to come up and stack the tree down, then go back to the end of their team line, and next person in line comes up to stack tree again…..and so on and so on, until each person has had their hands on the cups. OR 2) have each person in team to tree stack AND take it down, THEN go back to end of line, next person comes up and repeats, until one team finishes first. Then you could give out a little prize if you wanted. Elementary had a ball with this!!!!!
