The Julia is on Spring Break this week! which means last Friday we had another class party to throw! We played Easter Bingo and watched Cat in the Hat. I also passed around little kits to make Dirt pudding!
(I am not sure why the pictures are not in the right order!?)
I gave each child a gummy worm and an Oreo cookie,
We smashed the Oreo Cookie in a baggie:
Then came the pudding
We arranged the "dirt" added the worms and topped it off with an Easter bunny!
The 25 first graders LOVED it!
I have loved planing these parties for my daughter's class, but there's a lot of pressure. Each time there's a party I get a little nervous and my mind goes blank about what we will play, craft, or eat!
I panic a little and go Google crazy about all the ideas out there.I probably stress over it a little too much. I mean they are first graders. Gosh I can't even remember every class party I had growing up so I am sure they wont either. But I just want Julia to have a good time and feel special because she knows how hard her mommy works to put the party together for her and her friends.
I know a time will come when She will be embarrassed about the thought of me coming to her school. She will beg me to drop her off a block away so she wont be seen with her MOM! She will roll her eyes when I ask if I can be the chaperone to her field trips. So I want to soak in ever smile, every hug, every excited cheer of my name as I walk into that classroom with all the goodies in hand for another class party!
