Lei Off Drugs - Ideas for Red Ribbon Week Activities

NIMCO, Inc. Encourages Red Ribbon Week Activities

Over the next few weeks leading up to Red Ribbon Week 2013, NIMCO will be sharing some activity ideas on our blog that teachers and community leaders can use to help students get excited about Red Ribbon Week. Many of these ideas can be incorporated in your school leading up to Red Ribbon Week.

Our thirteenth entry is entitled: Lei Off Drugs

• Hawaiian leis will be passed out to all students to wear.

• Students wear their favorite Hawaiian theme clothing: colorful shirts, grass skirts, crowns of flowers, flip flops, colorful bandanas, etc. (Must follow the school dress code and dress appropriately.)

• Place inflatable palm trees, pink flamingos and colorful balloons around the school.

• Students receive theme sticker for participating.

• Teachers teach students a few Hawaiian words and phrases.

• Play a CD of island music during lunch hour to add to the atmosphere.

• Ask the cafeteria ahead of time if they can serve Hawaiian themed foods like pineapple, bananas, kiwi, fruit salad, coconut, rice, Hawaiian punch, beef stew or BBQ.

“Aloha. Hand in hand lets take a drug-free stand.”
