I’ve been a room mom and classroom helper for about 15 years. 15 YEARS! My oldest son is in college, and my youngest two just graduated from elementary school and are heading into middle school after summer break. Grading papers, photocopying, stuffing take-home folders, and tallying up hours for reading logs has never been much fun, but getting to ride the bus to all the field trips, and helping out at all the class parties has certainly been worth it.
With school on the horizon, it’s time to start thinking about back-to-school supplies, and what the classroom might need this coming year. Room moms and teachers often take on extra costs to make sure that everything is taken care of, and at the beginning of the year a list of classroom supplies will often be sent home with extra items that are needed throughout the year such as tissues and Wet Ones® Hand Wipes. And you think you are done, you’ve purchased the school supplies, the extra items needed to keep the classroom running and sanitized, but then come the class parties. Letters are often sent home to parents with lists of items needed and a call for volunteers to help serve food and decorate if needed. And the room mom and teacher say a little prayer that parents step in to provide much-needed supplies.
So, here’s where you can help. While you are picking up those extra items, create a party kit too to kick the year off right.
The kit I’ve put together costs under $30 (including the box) and has enough supplies for one party, with a few supplies left over to go towards the next one, because packets of napkins, plates, etc. don’t come in the exact amount you need for each student in the class.
I found this great box at my local craft store for under $10 and then used a 40% off coupon to get a discount. You can use any kind of box you want though. I chose a wood box so I could paint it with chalkboard paint and tie a chalk pencil to it so that the birthday child’s name or the next holiday could be written on the box. The parent can pop extra supplies inside before the day, and those setting up will have everything on hand that they need for quick and easy setup.
Once the box is painted and the chalk pencil tied on, fill it with much-needed party supplies such as:
Classroom Party Kit
- Specially Marked Wet Ones®
- Disposable plates
- Disposable bowls
- Disposable cups
- Forks and spoons
- Vinyl gloves – for the parent/teacher to pass out food
- Tablecloth for quick and easy clean up of the food table
- Paper bags or zipper seal bags for kids to take leftovers home
- Serving tray – for if you need to carry food around the classroom to hand out at desks
We have always used Wet Ones® Hand Wipes for parties in the classroom. They are perfect for cleaning up messy hands because they kill 99.99% of germs, are hypoallergenic and clean better than hand sanitizers. You can find great savings on Wet Ones® with this Ibotta offer.
