With Christmas just around the corner, it is not only our homes that our creative minds are rearing to deck but also our classrooms. Whether you are an elementary school student or a teacher, the temptation to decorate the classroom is just too much. This is especially true if you have a Christmas party coming up and you want your classroom to look the best. So, do you have any novel ideas?
Let us help you out here. There is so much that you can do.
There is so much that you can do with the walls. Apart from hanging the usual wreaths, you can create a tree of life on one of the walls and then paint green leaves on it. If you use washable paint, you will not have to worry about the principal throwing a fit when she sees it! Because you do not want every wall to be decorated because that really will be an overkill, try to stick to one or two walls. Apart from the tree of life, you can make your own Christmas stockings from rubber paper to hang on the walls.
The Cake Table
Until now, the cake table was restricted to birthdays. But who says you cannot decorate a cake table for your school Christmas party? You will find plenty of bakeries selling Christmas themed cookies and cakes. If they have run out, buy standard cookies and use cookie decoration art to color them Christmassy colors – red, green and white! If you can find white marshmallows, use them to make snowmen, with cloves as their arms and noses! Make sure your paper plates and cups are all festively colored!
No one will ever tell you that they do not like free giveaways on Christmas! Make your own. Giveaways do not have to be fancy, expensive presents that will put a hole in your wallet. You can get a few pieces of Christmas themed candies, wrap them in clear plastic bags and put on a ribbon on them. Place them with the goodies on the cake table and you have yourself yet another party craft idea!
It is a class party and you really do not need to invite anyone but just for fun’s sake, create invitations to hand out to your friends, teachers and of course the administrative staff of your school. A simple green card with red trimmings will do. Use white to write your invitation. You can also cut shapes such as stars, Christmas trees and even reindeer and write your invitation in them. Mind you, it may be difficult to find envelopes for shaped Christmas invites!
