    Hi There!
    I'm a teacher and tomorrow I will be having a holiday celebration with book club and news team (4th and 5th graders). Our plan is to have a "Countdown to New Years" with them. We have appetizers for the food, apple juice in champagne cups for the drinks, and some festive party hats/tiaras/noisemakers. I'd like to include some fairly easy, inexpensive activities - we have about 27 kids. Any ideas? I'd also love to project a new years countdown but haven't been able to find an appropriate video...
    Thanks!

    For a countdown, how about doing a powerpoint 10 second countdown? You could add Auld Lang Syne in the last slide, or just play it at the end. I'm thinking of game ideas...LOL I have a part with my Chorus kids on Wednesday, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades! So I'm in the same boat! :rotfl2:

    Noise makers, make funny hats and wear them during the countdown, take LOTS of pictures (do you have a printer for digital pictures you could use and print them out as take home favors?)

    Address the kissing at midnight issue also. Set some rules!
