Spirit Week Ideas

I have recently been asked to help with student council and am looking for some fun spirit week ideas. We have PJ Day, Crazy Day, Hat Day, 50's day, and Blue/White Day (school colors) for one straight week. We are looking into going to one spirit day each month, and I am looking for some new ideas...anyone?

backwards day ( clothes on backwards)--teach lessons out of order.

sports day, (wear clothes of favorite sports teams)

70's and 80's day, their parents will get into helping with that!

charictor day ( favorite carictor from book or movie-- apropriatly chosen)

give a hug day, let the one group be in charge of selling bags(about 5 each) of hershey hugs, with a little positive note attached, let another group deliver the "candy grams"--money could go to a charity or other needed item or party for the class that sells the most.

class color day-each class chooses a different color

stuffed animal day

sports day-wear favorite team (boys LOVE this!)

Hawaiian day-pass out cheap leis

1800's day- boys make huge cuffs in their jeans, girls wear long dresses with aprons over them, tie books in rope or belt, bring lunches in baskets, apple for the teacher, use slates, leave lights off, teacher uses old fashioned bell.

twin day-find a buddy and dress the same

We do a Teacher Switch Day one Friday afternoon near the end of school--the students come in from lunch recess to find a different teacher in their room.

ideas, spirit, week
