How to Plan a School Christmas Party


School parties are a much anticipated part of attending elementary school. Plan a Christmas party that will be memorable and fun for the children. Be sensitive to any children with religious conflicts and plan the party accordingly. Leave plenty of time for planning, organizing and collecting supplies for the party.

Things You'll Need

  • Party food
  • Holiday craft
  • Three games
  • Decorations
  • Communicate with the teacher in advance to find out what her expectations for the party are. Get pertinent information from the teacher such as time, date, budget and specific ideas that she wants carried out.

  • Request help from other parents. Involve as many parents as possible and delegate responsibilities. Make request for parents to send money early.

  • Make a snack menu. Provide both healthy and sweet snacks. Make the party feel festive by serving hot cocoa and cookies. Let the children decorate their cookies with icing and candy as one of the party activities.

  • Organize two to three games depending on the time allotted. Choose games tailored to the age and skill level of the children involved. Play games like "Stuff the Santa," "Ice Capades" and "Holiday Bingo."

  • Plan a simple craft. Have the children make a small gift for their parents, decorate wrapping paper and/or create an ornament for their Christmas tree.

  • Purchase decorations, craft supplies, non-perishable food items and party favors one to two weeks in advance. Purchase perishable food items the day before the party. Place special orders with bakeries, for cupcakes, cookies or other bakery items, to ensure that you will get all of the goods you need.

  • Arrive at the school and hour or so early so that you have time to decorate, set out food and organize games and design activities.
