The past week of school was a complete blast for Charli Beth. I remember having weeks like hers and just being on cloud 9 because I was having a field trip, school party, or someone was going to have lunch with me. For Char, she had a field trip and her Fall Harvest party within days of one another. Can you see the excitement in her sweet little face in the photo above? Of course, she was wearing her pumpkin outfit to attend the trip to Just Piddlin' Farms with her first grade class.
Lets just go ahead and state the simple fact, that I am not creative, at all. So thankfully the local Mighty Dollar had stickers and cupcake wrappers that I was able to cut around to use. I also had to become a tiny bit creative for my Mummy can, in which Curtis thought was hilarious looking. But I was proud of my effort, even if it was tissue paper.
The point of the game was to fill each can with "prizes" and let the kids roll a small pumpkin into the cans. Whichever cans they knocked down were the prizes they were able to keep. (Keep in mind, I gave lots of extra treats with their loot bags.) Some kids loved the game and belly laughed about knocking down the cans, to some wanting to kick my pumpkin (aw naw!) but over all Charli says, "IT WAS AWESOME!!!"
Between the game and the craft the students had a snack of a cupcake, fruit, chips and a caprisun. Although, some were not able to atttend, this was a huge help from the parents in the biggest way. It is such a nice gesture to help out with a party in some way even if you are not able to attend. I tried to send out thank you notes to everyone that sent in donations of money, since I would not be able to thank them in person.
This is my example for the Bat Craft that I purchased off Oriental Trading Co. it said that their age group would be perfect for the craft. Soon after starting the project I sadly realized that I should of picked something more simple. The kids did a fabulous job with their projects and some added their own touches by only making their bat have one eye.
Even though the party was very rushed, I was thankful to be able to spend extra time with Charli Beth and be apart of her class for a little while. Her teacher is quite amazing this year and I am thankful Charli was picked for her room. I cannot wait to see what other fun things they do this year!!
