Tomorrow, our class is having a BFG Party!

I don't know about you, but I love love love Roald Dahl children's books. (Adult books, not so much.) The BFG is one of my absolute favorites, and my class is super into the book.

My plans for tomorrow include measuring how tall the giants in the book were, making a character profile (and drawing) of our own giant, watching the BrainPop video about Roald Dahl, enjoying snozzcumbers and frobscottle, watching the animated BFG movie, and eating tiny food to make us feel like giants. We might also make dream jars.

My Facebook friends are suggesting food items. Some so far:
- Cookie Crisp, or mini Chips Ahoy
- Mini Oreos
- Cocktail weenies
- Tiny sandwiches
- Mini pizzas
- Baby carrots
- Mini pizzas

Any other ideas of tiny food and/or fun giant-themed activities? I am getting so excited for our party!


  1. That sounds awesome Jenny! The BFG is one of my favorite all time books! If you do anything amazing please be sure to take pictures and share! :)
