90s Day at School: Bounce to Da (School) House

It’s 90s day at school! What will you wear? What 90s music should we play in class? And what 90s TV show will we watch as a reward for finishing our work? If you’re bouncing toward the (school) house with 90s day on tap, then maybe you need a little trip down memory lane to get you in the right frame of mind. Here are some tips to help make your special day a, um, phat one.

90s Day Fashion

The 90s introduced us to the grunge look, so that’s a good approach to your wardrobe for the day. Keep your clothes loose and baggy, but don’t forget to stock up on plaid flannel shirts! And make sure you pick out that perfect pair of combat boots in a funky color like pink or green for an outfit that will have everyone asking where you found them.

90s Day Food

Be sure to treat your 90s party day with the full respect it deserves by making some of the best 90s dishes that would be perfect for your celebration! Start with pizza and nachos (you know, if you’re into spicy fare), move on to chicken wings or Cheetos (if not too many carbs are driving you crazy) and finish it off with plenty of chips sprinkled in different flavors like sour cream & onion or BBQ bacon cheddar flavor!

And for your drinks? Well, you can’t go wrong with 90s era favorites: Coke, Pepsi, Mountain Dew, Capri Sun, Slice, Hi-C Ecto Cooler, Orange Crush and more!

90s Day Activity Ideas

If you’re looking for ways to keep the 90s party going while your guests are enjoying their food, there’s an endless list of activities you can choose from. You could have a 90s trivia game at one table – make sure they get points for answering questions about 90s cartoons like Rugrats or Spongebob Squarepants. At another table, set up some games that would’ve been popular in the 90s such as Jenga or Connect Four. And if anyone is really feeling daring (or nostalgic), let them rock out to tunes from Nirvana or Pearl Jam on Guitar Hero!

90s Day Music

No 90s party would be complete without 90’s music! To get your guests in the mood, you could play 90s pop hits like “I Want It That Way” or “MMMBop.” For a more nostalgic feel, go for some grunge classics by Nirvana and Pearl Jam.

Other favorites from the decade include Hootie & the Blowfish, Boyz II Men, and the Spice Girls.

90s Day Viewing Choices

Wheel in a cart with a TV and VCR, and you’re ready to spend an entire class (or day!) watching some great 90s shows and movies. 90

90s TV classics suitable for school include Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Saved by the Bell, and Full House. If you want to get a bit more spicy with your viewing, pop in Seinfeld, Cheers, or *gulp* Married With Children.

Or, for something with a bit more glitz …

If you’re looking to watch a movie in class without having to hide it from your teachers and parents too much, 90’s movies are perfect. Pop some popcorn and grab your friends before watching any of these classics: Ace Ventura Pet Detective (1994), Clueless (1995), Dumb & Dumber (1994).

Other Tips for 90s Day

There really wasn’t much in the way of whiz-bang technology in the 90s, so this special day might be a good time to pack away your cell phone and tablets for awhile.

Maybe you could spend one class period taking turns reading from a real, physical, old-school book.

Teachers could really roll things back by breaking out some old-school games like pin the tale on the donkey or duck-duck-goose.

And nostalgia never looked better than in photos, so you could invite students — and teachers! — to bring in pics of their parents, friends, house, towns, etc., from the 1990s and spend some time pointing out all the changes. And getting in some good laughs, of course!
