This dance group has been looking forward to this party for weeks! Everyone came dressed in their Sunday Best! They were SOOO cute!!
In November they drew names for their secret kindness partner. They each had to perform 3 acts of kindness without getting caught. Then Saturday afternoon they guessed who had their name. If they guessed correctly then they got a prize. If they guessed incorrectly then the person who had their name got a prize. Saturday night was our party which was also the big reveal!
The party started with a plate full of food! And I’m talking about plates FULL of food!! We also had a Candy Buffet!!
Then we divided everyone into two teams to play games. Malaya and Mikela were team captains. There were 14 kids – so 7 rounds of playing – one against one for each game.
Game 1: We colored 3 popcorn kernels. They had to dig through a bowl of popcorn and find the 3 kernels! First one wins.
Game 2: Stacking plates/cups….3 cups, 1 plate, then 1 cup – repeat. First to complete this combo twice AND their stack not fall for 5 seconds… wins.
Game 3: Stacking cups – You had to move the first cup which said START from the bottom of the stack to the top of the stack by placing one cup after another from top to bottom. First one to complete it wins.
Game 4: Rolling dice – first one to roll doubles wins.
Game 5: Drawing circles on paper plate: Person who draws the most circles on the plate which is on their head wins (circles much touch – each round is 30 seconds).
The winning team 19 to 15 was Malaya’s team!
SECRET SANTA REVEAL
SANTA HAT WALK
The night ended with my famous Santa Hat Walk! We placed Santa Hats with numbers on the ground. When the music stopped I drew a number. If you were standing on the number you got to select which Santa Box you wanted. In each box Santa Box was a cash prize. You didn’t know how much was in each box. A heavier box might be a bunch of smaller bills and a lighter box might have a bigger bill. No way to know! Each box weighed differently…you could shake the box – but no peeking inside! (It was my goal that everyone would have a Merry Christmas this year – by having funds to purchase needed food or gifts for their family!)
