What are some of your favorite memories from elementary school? It’s important for kids to have positive experiences around school and for our counseling students to have positive counseling experiences. Holiday parties are a great way to add some fun to counseling and build relationships with your counseling students.

In this episode, we’re keeping it light hearted as I give you ideas to plan a Counseling Holiday Party that you can host even without a classroom. These ideas work great for groups of students or individuals and can be done during group time or as a drop-in system. 

Break out the holiday music and festive snacks and get ready for some fun!

Some topics covered in this episode are:

  • Ideas for when to host your party and how to coordinate with schedules and teachers

  • How counseling parties can paint counseling in a positive light and help you build rapport with your counseling students

  • Fun holiday-themed counseling activities to do during your party that enhance the counseling curriculum

  • My favorite TPT resources that you can use at your Holiday Counseling Party
