As the room mom for my daughter’s TK class, my son’s first grade class, and my other daughter’s third grade class, I had to come up with some ideas for their class parties. I ran across some personalized games at a craft fair a while back and decided to create my own. After all, how many sugar cookies can you decorate at each party?
I wanted a game. I wanted to get to know my children’s friends. I wanted them to get to know each other. Most importantly, I wanted them to have fun while building relationships with their classmates.
I went with Jenga and here’s why:
For Valentines Jenga, I used:
First, I put all the heart stickers on.
Then, I wrote questions, commands, and sentence fragments on each piece.
Done! How super simple was that?
* I used stickers instead of painting for drawing on the pieces because I wanted the game to be interchangeable for the different holiday parties. For example, winter parties, all I have to do is take the heart stickers off and put on snowflakes or snowmen.
