Literally overnight someone flipped the switch to turn off summer in the Washington, D.C. area as we’ve been enjoying fall-like temperatures for the past few days. It seems fitting though with the kids settled in school and everyone adjusting to new routines. Including me.
For the past seven years I’ve been a room parent in both kids’ classes and for the last three, I’ve stepped up to be room parent coordinator. Really it’s a fancy title that comes with sending out a few emails and helping new room parents get their bearings so they can best help their child’s classroom teacher. As a former teacher, this stuff comes easy to me.
There is always a flurry of questions from new and experienced room parents before class parties that are held for Halloween and Valentine’s Day. Since Halloween will be here before we know it, I teamed up with eBay to create some Halloween themed guides designed to help room parents so the party process seems less intimidating. From planning to games and even ideas on non-candy treats, I’m here to help! Just click on the images below to go to eBay to read the how-to guide of your choice!

Even if it seems like it’s too early to talk Halloween, I know my fellow room parent readers are starting to think about their class parties too so here’s to fun parties that appeal to all ages and stay within your budget!
My Halloween guides were written as part of a compensated partnership with eBay. I was not required to write this post and all opinions are my own.
