I found this hilarious game… All you need are sturdy paper plates and pens for each player. The host tells the players to put their paper plate on their head. Then the host will give a series of instructions for the players to draw on their paper plates (that are on their heads) without looking. Super cute idea for classroom party activity. Could have then draw Christmas things

A fun sisterhood event. Bought the first letter of each girls name at Michaels along with different colored paint pens. The girls passed their letter to each other and they wrote something about their friend on their letter that described them. When they got their own letter back it made them talk and laugh and feel special.
