Halloween party planning is so much fun! I will have lots of posts this month, ranging from full party plans to simple games. Please post any ideas that you have in the comments section.
You should already be thinking about where you are having your party. Is there room in the classroom? Are both rooms having their party together? Think about how you are dividing the kids into activity groups and how many kids will be in each group. All of these things should help you plan for how many parents you need at the party to make sure it runs smoothly. Don't forget about setup/cleanup time when you are asking for help! I STRONGLY ENCOURAGE you to use volunteerspot.com to coordinate your volunteers and supply parents. I am using it and I think it's great! It cuts back on duplication and eliminates the need for you to send out multiple e-mails updating parents on party needs.
