Need help with Family reading night name and food

11 years 5 months ago #158690 by Marie
I am planning my first Family Reading Night. This theme will be a little different than most Family Reading Night themes. To kinda of get everyone ready for the holidays we will be learning about christmas/kwanza/hanukkah. Will have a station for each book reading with activities and craft. I need help with a theme name and food ideas. I have a small budget, so I was thinking of maybe finger foods. I would greatly appreciate any ideas you can pass along.

Our upcoming literacy event is a Family Soup and Poetry night. Purchasing the soup through the school cafeteria so it is extremely cost effective. Goes well with our winter months. You can also do chili or something like that. We're staring in the cafeteria and then moving on to different stations. We also have a nutritional committee that helps with dinner and food items. Working closely with the cafeteria is great beacause they are able to buy some items back if we over purchase. We have also done a bake sale during our family events. Hope this helps some.

I ran our first Reading Night last year, we served milk and cookies. We also had (luke warm) hot cocoa. Kids came in pjs. ( so did one of our teachers) It was a big hit!

What a great idea ordering through the cafeteria, I am going to use that.

Winter Holidays is a theme on it's own so I don't think you have to get too creative with giving it a name....

Why not have the chili and pj's..... Families will have dinner, bedtime stories and already be in their jamma's. :)
