Flower number 12: an end of year party

The end of the year amidst tweens who are totally spent after a season of testing is just silly. No one wants to work anymore. We all just want to play. A fun reward for students is a class party because if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. And parties are fun. So. Are. Muppets.

For our Muppet Party, I printed coloring sheets, played Muppet music on Spotify, showed YouTube videos about the making of Muppets, and some Jim Henson projects. And, at the end of the day, we played Muppet Karaoke with our classroom technology.

Of course, the party would not be complete without Kermit cupcakes inspired by Crystal at Simply Being Mommy. Green frosting and Mentos = Smiles.

Piggy Pops were a spontaneous invention. I used giant regular and strawberry flavored marshmallows, food coloring, and lollipop sticks. These are super fun for posing in front of the camera. 

Speaking of posing for the camera, we made a Muppet Photo Booth using a template from Disney Family and some old 3D movie glasses!
