Events (Pajama Party)

Hello,
                Wintermute here bringing you your daily does of Dumbr. Tonight we talk about every child’s dream, a slumber party at school with friends. The best part about throwing a pajama party for your students is it forces your employer to pay you over-time. ;)

                First you will have to decide what your students will be doing; this event will be set up much like the Fair we discussed earlier. Each Class will be a different stage for the kids to venture to. However this time around the kids won’t be involved in the planning process, they are there to have some fun. Here are some ideas:

1.       Bowling: Get some 2 liter bottles, fill them up a quarter of the way with water (not all the way or they won’t fall), tip the desk to make a lane and have the kids play.

2.       Team Games: play some games with all of the classes to promote team work, such as passing a ball behind you first over then under then over until the end of the line.

3.       Team Contest: Make a team with each individual Class, have the team come up with a name and then have them design a banner, and last make a team cheer. All the classes will go to the gym and present their banner and cheer. I’m not too hip on this one, but the kids love it.

4.       Anything really, just make sure it’s fun.

Pick a Friday to have all of your students return to the school around 6:30. Tell your kids to wear pajamas and bring sleeping bags. When they arrive have them drop their stuff off. Let them play the games for however long, after a while though serve them some dinner. Something easy like fried chicken, because who doesn’t like fried chicken?

Then have them get their sleeping bags and head to the gym, turn down the lights nice a dim, get a female teacher and have her read them a story. Hopefully they will all fall asleep. None will however, but rest assured the parents are well on their way and ready to pick their sugar high kids up.

Have fun, enjoy yourself, and stay Dumbr. Be sure to comment and ask questions. Tomorrow, Story Book!

  17. We had movie night in elementary school. A lot of the other kids dressed in PJs for some reason and the cool kids would play spin the soda can while the lights were dimmed during the movie. We might have 5th Grader mommies if it was a slumber party.
