it's KS1, 4-7 year-olds, so fun rather than sophisticated.. I've got some home-made bunting but need other low-cost, high impact ideas to decorate the hall. I thought I could cut that shiny foil wrapping paper to make fringes which could move and shimmer a bit. Also perhaps there's a simple project I could ask the class teachers to do with the kids so they would have some input (and be child labour!) - maybe painting on paper plates I could string together? thanks for any clever suggestions...

Suspend a sheet sized length of net cloth from the ceiling with ribbon or string

- make sure it has a split at the centre which is fastened shut with a couple of bow fastened ties made from ribbon or streamers.

Fill this see-through "canopy" with balloons, sequins & streamers, feathers & anything colourful & sparkly, even sweets etc - Poundland etc a good source of these smile

it acts as decoration, & at some point near the end of your party you can tug on the ties & release all the balloons etc, which makes for great photos & the kids love chasing & popping balloons & collecting sequins etc smile

you could also make "Disco balls" in class -

cds hanging from a length of coloured string or ribbon, hang at different heights, they will be all shimmery in the light

Do you have any milk bottling plants nearby? (Perhaps try and find in Yellow pages). If so, they usually have reels and reels of foil from which they have stamped out bottle tops - these make good decorations (streamers) if you hang them from the ceiling - you just need to go and blag a few ...
