Thank you to CraftProjectIdeas for supplying craft supplies for this post.
My daughter recently celebrated a birthday. Her requests were simple this year. She wanted to go on a little family trip to a local state park, hike, and splash around in the river. Easiest birthday, ever, right?
Her birthday was on a Sunday. I found out a few days before that I was needed to teach her Sunday School class. I decided at the last minute to surprise her with a secret small classroom party. With little time (and budget), I put together an easy, fun celebration for her. If you are looking for a few last minute classroom birthday party ideas, here are some. I went with #1 on the list, but we have also done #2 and #3 in the past. The rest I’ll save for another time.
#1 Small art party – This is a fun one because you can alter the art idea based on the age of the kids. This sun catcher kit from CraftProjectIdeas comes with everything that I needed (except extra paint brushes) for the kids to create a cute sun catcher craft. I brought along a few snacks and a tablecloth for a simple party idea.
#2 Mini doughnut party – Grab a few bags of mini doughnuts from the store. Let the kids choose their favorite kind.
#3 Lunch pizza party – Take pizzas to your child’s class for lunch.
#4 Fruit platter party- Take a fruit platter to your child’s class for lunch. The teacher will definitely appreciate this more than sugary sweets!
#5 Surprise reading party- Does your child’s classroom have reading time? Arrange with your child’s teacher to surprise your birthday boy or girl with reading at their story time and bring a bookmark or inexpensive book to pass out to the kids in honor of your child’s special day.
Have you thrown an easy classroom party for your kiddo? What other ideas would you add to the list?
