I made grasshopper party hats for all the kids ...

For the party, I set up 4 stations ... I love pinterest for game ideas!!
1. Bug bingo game - roll the dice and add the 2 numbers, first to get Bingo wins a spoon full of rocks (yes I found chocolate rocks at the Souq!)
2. Gone buggy game - first to fill their "jar" with 7 plastic bugs wins. But don't roll a fly swatter / bug spray or you lose 1 bug / your whole jar!
3. Draw a grasshopper game - add parts of the grasshopper to your drawing depending on what number you roll
4. Build a grasshopper craft using plastic easter eggs, pipe cleaners, and other odds and ends. Plus I found LED tea lights to put inside so the bugs glow! I think the lights were the kids favorite part!!
We ended the stations with a bug movement game (march like and ant, jump like a grasshopper, etc, etc).
For dessert I made a chocolate mint flavored "grasshopper" cake.
It was crazy fun!! I'm going to miss Jaden's class and his amazing teacher!!! It was a fantastic year!!!
