I'm so proud of my little kidlets! They earned their 10 Charger Tickets (schoolwide incentive program) which means they've earned a special surprise....only what the heck are we gonna do?!
Let's be honest--we all love doing special fun things for the kidlets, but sometimes it can get a little pricey or time consuming or lame. What to do...what to do.....
WELL FEAR NOT, DEAR READERS! For I have a few ideas to share :)
We've decided to have a (wait for it....) THEMED. READING. PARTY. (Oh how I love a good theme...) and the kidlets are casting their votes this afternoon. Yippee!
I thought I'd share these ideas with you for a couple of reasons--reason numero uno: I love to share. Reason numero dos: I thought if someone out there in the bloggy land was looking for something fun to do with their kiddos, then this might give them a couple of fun ideas :)
Idea Number One: Reading Slumber Party
This idea is a like a magical pajama day, reading party hybrid. The kiddos wear their PJs and bring in their favorite stuffty animal and a pillow to sit on the floor and read. The best part? What is a slumber party without popcorn?! (Provided by yours truly. I love me some yumalicious popcorn.)
Idea Number Two: Reading Camp Out
Are you a big fan of the great outdoors?? Than this is the incentive idea for you! Have your kiddos bring in a sleeping bag and a flashlight, turn off the lights and have them read by the light of their flashlights! And, (since all parties need snacks....) I found this trail mix-esque recipe on Pinterest (from whence all good things come) for 'Smore Trail Mix. Voila!
Idea Number Three: Beach Party
Have the kidlets bring in their beach towels, wear their sunglasses and summer gear and hit the beach for a reading party! Here's a fun snack to match--follow the picture link for the recipe :)
Well there you have it, friendlies! Three ideas I hope you'll be able to take a run with :)
Sidenote: Check out my other blog Sparkly, Quirky Lifebox if you're looking for something to make for dinner this week. I made a (Lowfat But Still Delicious) Cheesy Bacon Ranch Pasta with Chicken and it was pretty yummy. Thank you pinterest!
