Kids' Christmas Party 2014
On Sunday 14th Bowers English School held the Children Christmas Party. This time we were expecting more than 40 guests, so we didn’t hold the party at the school as we did for Halloween but we all went to the Community Centre.
It was a great party!
First of all, we did the Christmas toast, and then we had cake, sandwiches and other Christmas treats. While everybody was eating, the children got to decorate the gingerbread house. We had prepared a gingerbread house before, and the children adorned it with candies, chocolates and lollipops. It turned out beautiful!

When everybody was finished eating and decorating the gingerbread house, we played some games. First we played rock paper scissors pencils, which is like rock paper scissors but the winner gets the pencil of the opponent.
We then played card slam with the Christmas cards we teachers had made in the previous weeks. As there were a lot of children, we divided them between kindergarten and elementary school children. Each group was then split in two teams, and the members of the winning team got a special Christmas chocolate lollipop!
After that we played bingo. The first prize was the gingerbread house so everybody was keen to win it! This year, Shino chan won the first prize, but there were other presents so everybody went home with something!
Each child had brought a present, so before finishing the party everybody exchanged them.
Finally we sang “Oh Christmas tree” and “We wish you a merry Christmas”. All the children had been learning these two Christmas carols in the weeks before so everybody did a great job singing and dancing!
Thanks to the many students who came, this year’s Christmas party was very lively and fun! I have to admit that for us teachers it was also very busy, but it was totally worth it!
