BCBE Wellness Policy Healthy Classroom Party Ideas:

  •  **Snacks served must be individually (pre-packaged) from the vendor. 

    Non-Food Activities Try celebrating with NO Food. This will allow you to focus on the children instead of the food! Ideas: Birthday boy/girl wears a crown all day or brings a book to be read aloud to the class. Bring age appropriate party favors: coloring books, stickers, jump ropes, small toys, pencils, crayons, books, balls, playing cards, small stuffed animals, or homemade goody bags. Holiday Non-Food Celebration Ideas: Holiday stations with hands-on activities. Students rotate station-to-station creating bookmarks, greeting cards, relay games, dancing, etc.
