So I am in charge of setting up my son's 1st grade Winter Party. I need some craft and game ideas. Help! :)
You have a station where they decorate their own gingerbread men.
Supplies: Black board and chalk or Dry Erase board and markers
Slips of paper with a different winter items/objects on each one
[example: mittens, coat, candy cane, snowflake, etc... Christmas themed
bowl to draw from or stocking Timer
How To Play: Divide the class into teams. The player up draws a
slip of paper from the stocking, reads it silently and hands to
teacher. The player must then draw clues as to what was on their paper
and by so doing get their team to say what it is. If the playing team
guesses correctly, before the timer runs out, they get two points.
If the playing team cannot guess correctly, before the timer runs
out, the opposing team may take one guess. If the opposing team guesses
correctly they get a point and the playing team loses a point. Most
For small children don't divide into teams, use a timer or keep
track of points. Just play until someone in the class yells out the
snowmen are easy to make. get a couple bags of cotton balls, some
glue and some felt to cut out hat and eyes. little sticks are great for
the arms. also snowflakes are fun.
you can make bird feeders
you need pine cones and peanut butter and birdseed. (that won't work if you have peanut allergies in the classroom or peanut restrictions in your school.
For an easy game kids LOVE - go for Bingo.
You can go onliine and find free themed bingo cards to print out. I've
seen them with winter theme stuff in each block; instead of the letters
BINGO, the blocks have snowmen, skiiers, snowflakes, mittens, etc. Be
sure to have small prizes and lots of them for each round; good ones are
fun, shaped erasers you can pick up at dollar stores. We almost always
had bingo at first, second and third grade
parties and the kids universally loved it whether the whole class
played together or they played in smaller groups as they "rotated"
through different craft and game stations. Check online!
