Thanksgiving Party

Elin had her first school party for preschool and I took off work to help with the games. I also got to volunteer and help the class for the whole day. It was so interesting to see their routine and see all the things that Elin talks about at home.

The days started with them putting up their coats and book bags and spending time before class began by working on puzzles. I was amazed how they all worked on their puzzles so quietly. Then they preceded to have story time, sharing time, outdoor running, and different learning stations.


Then for the Thanksgiving party, the kids had worked on special table runners they made and they had a snack of Chex mix and turkey-shaped cookies.


It was so cute to listen Elin talk to her little friends and how she interacts with everyone.


Then it was time for the first game which was Bingo. I was’t sure how this would go over since they are a little young for Bingo, but they seemed to catch on quickly and enjoy the game. I found this adorable game and had it printed and then I just used Cheerios for game pieces. I’m definitely keeping this game to use for future school parties for her. It seems like it would be enjoyed by many ages and I just used stickers as prizes and of course everyone got a sticker.


Then one of the other room parents made this adorable pin the feather on the turkey game and all the kiddos really seemed to enjoy this as well.



Then we played a simple game of hot potato with the kids using a stuffed toy turkey. The kiddos loved this as well and before we knew it, it was the end of the day and time to go home.

Elin’s class is so sweet and it was so nice to get to see the kids in action in the classroom. I am so glad I took off work to spend time with them and I plan on doing this for their Christmas party in a couple of weeks.
