"I did this last year and the kids loved it!! Countdown to last day of school. Pop one balloon each day. Inside is a special surprise for the day. Ex. No homework, read outside, work with no shoes on, chew gum in the morning, etc."
Minute To Win It! Noodling Around - The kids lined up penne pasta at the edge of their desks and tried to pick up all of them with one piece of spaghetti that they held in their mouth. I thought for sure the spaghetti would break, but it held up. They loved this one and kept trying long after we had a winner. Such concentration!
Pop balloons to do a countdown - Each balloon has a special message or activity within - I love this idea! This one is for a classroom to count down the last days of school, but I think it would be fun to do at home before a vacation, birthday, or for the beginning of the new school year.
