Refreshment Ideas for My Very First Classroom Open House?

Stelmaria | Aug 7, 2012 10:43 PM

My darling CHers,

I am about to meet my very first fourth graders...and their parents. I am super excited; however, I'm also incredibly nervous. I'm making activity books of fun things to do with the rest of the summer/getting to know you activities/an introduction to our classroom, I'm in the middle of preparing said classroom, and I'm wondering: should I have refreshments for my open house day? Should I have separate kid friendly ones (that is, a little more cutesy) or what? Should I worry about vegan options? (Considering the demographics of our school, I don't think I'll have to, but still.)

Most importantly: any ideas? Preferably budget friendly, because I'm not in the world's most highly paid profession. (However, feel free to make the kind of suggestions I can just fantasize about, even if tongue in cheek. I read cookbooks the way some girls read fashion magazines. Looking at the CH boards, I don't think I'm alone in this.) I can bring my dorm fridge, if needed.
