I remember one year we had some really bad weather and school was delayed by a couple hours. Even when the kids did show up for school, so many parents decided to keep their children at home. I sent my child. (I had to work!) Anyhow the teachers made the day so great for the kids who showed up. I think there was like 9 kids. The teachers put down some blue paper on the floor which represented a frozen pond. They divided the children onto either sides of the pond and gave them snowballs(balled up paper). The kids had a blast having an indoor snowball fight. Nobody got hurt, wet, or cold. And......they didn't have to get dressed up in all that snow gear! Have fun!

check out oriental trading company for some craft ideas. they sell packs that make 12-24 crafts per "unit" and they are pretty cheap. my friend is a teacher and she uses them for almost all of her craft projects for her students. happy party!

I saw a cute one where you take popsicle sticks and make a cross then an x so there are eight points, then decorate them like a snowflake. you can paint them and put glitter or foam shapes on them. really easy.

You could do a relay race with spoons holding snowballs (styrofoam balls from the craft store).

Hi K.,

I am a homeroom mom for my daughters 5th grade class. I found a ton of fun games for the holiday party that the kids seemed to enjoy at the following web address. http://improvencyclopedia.org/games/index.html

Have fun.
