    I am doing a unit based on the book "If you give a pig a party" I would like to put "party supplies" into my housekeeping area. What would you add to it?

    Am I silly to be worried about pointed birthday hats? My kids play hard and I'm a little scared

    From the aspect of how we are supposed to have real tools in the tool center, which I don't. You have to teach the expected behavior is what I've been told.

    I wouldn't worry about it...If kids are given party hats at a party then you shouldn't have to worry about giving them to them at a center. I'd worry more about balloons (if they wern't already blown up).

    Hi, boxes, wrapping paper and tape, mixing bowls, muffin tins etc to 'make' cupcakes, felt or laminated shapes to make and decorate a birthday cakes, pin the tail on the donkey or similar type of game, a birthday theme table cloth for the table, and maybe some paper plates or napkins. I personally would not include balloons either blown up or not for safety reasons and if they pop some children could be frightened by the noise.

    I wouldn't include balloons either. I remember seeing some cloth party hats in the party store that weren't pointed but were obviously party hats. If it were me, i would just go walk around the party supplies store and see what jumps out at me!

    Empty goodie bags and goodie bag items to sort into bags could be another idea.

    What a cute idea! I would also put some pans in the sand table - my kids love making "birthday cakes" in there. You could put old greeting cards, glitter, bows and ribbon in the art centre.

    My kids make "birthday cakes" with our pegboards.

    That's OT but the talk of birthday cakes reminded me ;)

    party hats, birthday table cloth, invitations, round hat box (for the cake, the kids could decorate it in the art center) birthday plates, empty boxes (the kids could "wrap" them with birthday wrapping paper, or make their own paper, and also make the gifts), bows, oh I could go on and on and on...this is a cute idea!
