Throughout the school year, there are many classroom events and parties where kids get to celebrate various holidays. One of the major classroom events is the annual Christmas party. If your child has a class Christmas party coming up, it’s helpful to plan some things to bring. Here’s a brief list of what to bring to a school Christmas party to help you get started.
Pre-Packaged Holiday Snacks
Pre-packaged holiday snacks are the first common items to bring to a class Christmas party. Many teachers will ask students and parents to bring food and snacks for the class so there is enough for everyone. However, in recent years, schools have begun to require that snacks not be homemade for safety purposes. Therefore, purchasing pre-packaged holiday snacks at the store is an excellent idea for the class to enjoy. You can get sweet treats like Christmas cookies, brownies, or candy canes. Or you can opt for healthier snacks like finger sandwiches and vegetable dips.
Festive Holiday Greeting Cards
Festive holiday greeting cards are another thing to bring to a school Christmas party. It’s fun for students to exchange gifts with each other, but you don’t want anyone to feel left out. Therefore, it’s a good idea to stick to holiday cards for the whole class so everyone receives the same item. Much like you would on Valentine’s Day, you can get little Christmas cards for each classmate and write a happy holiday message inside each one. These greeting cards are a great way to get everyone in the holiday spirit and share the season’s joy.
A Christmas Gift for the Teacher
It’s also a thoughtful idea to get a Christmas gift for your child’s teacher. Often, people forget to include the teacher when they bring party favors to the Christmas class event. Your child’s teacher puts in a lot of effort throughout the year to ensure your child is getting a quality education. Therefore, getting your child’s teacher a Christmas gift to say thank you and happy holidays is a thoughtful sentiment. There are all kinds of meaningful gifts you can get for teachers this time of year. You don’t have to get too extravagant. Something small and holiday-inspired to say thank you is appropriate, and the teacher will surely appreciate it.
Now that you know some essential things to bring to a class Christmas party, you can start planning today. Communicate with your child’s teacher to see if there is a list of requested supplies and determine what you can and cannot bring.
