Thank you so much to Sarah at First Grader... At Last! for the fabulous party theme idea. I also got a few ideas here. I just couldn't resist the thought of the little ones dressed up as movie stars.
This sign pointed to the Red Carpet (just a long sheet of bulletin board paper)
This is our Hollywood sign in the block area. We used it as a photo booth
This is a box of celebrity props that the kids could use to pose (microphone, director's clapboard, boa, sunglasses, etc). They loved it, and the parents did too!
They loved directing their friends
I was so busy at the party that I did not have time to take any more pictures!
For food, I made star cupcakes with edible silver glitter.
We also had an adorable wall that said "And the nominees are..." and everybody had a star with their name and picture on it. They loved it!
The children also shared their published stories with their parents. I could shoot myself for not getting a photo of one of their books! They chose their best work and I bound the stories into a book using my handy binding machine. My favorite part of the books was the About the Author page. I interviewed each child and typed it up real quick. I adore the random answers. For older students, you could have them write it themselves. How cute is that?
