  • I was thinking more of on the line of hot cheese and hot chocolate getting dripped on kids skin. Ouch!

  • Thinking of it in terms of DS's class (4th grade). Off the top of my head I can think of at least 3 who would make a holy mess, not counting my own who would end up wearing more than he ate.

  • If they serve it in a crockpot and spoon it onto plates so there is no double dipping... I think it is awesome. Sure it will be messy, but that is half of the fun.

  • Yuck! Talk about a double dipping germy nightmare!

  • Oh that's crazy. I won't complain about our school party. I would be worried, too, about burns. Just think how excited and hyper the kids will be during the party. It's an accident waiting to happen.

  • First, the idea of the fire under the pot is a tiny bit unsettling..unless it's in a safe place like the science lab or something
    The prongs on the fondue sticks alone I can see that ONE kid who uses it as a sword or something
    Double dipping, burning themselves or their mouths from the heat...I just don't think it's safe just yet...
    But then again, you know it may end up being a great party and nothing goes wrong :)

  • The best memories are usually the messiest! Have fun with it!

    I'm taking Christmas Crackers for the kids this year. Our boys wanted them to experience an English tradition that my Husband did when he was a kid.

  • sounds like insanity!

  • Our first graders had a chocolate fondue in their Charlie and the Chocolate Factory party. Of course a teacher or parent assisted them with it.
