Fun Ideas for End-of-the-School-Year Parties
It’s that time of year again. Everyone has spring fever, and summer is just around the corner. The anticipation is overwhelming as people get ready to say goodbye to friends until the fall and get excited over summer plans. It’s always fun to celebrate the last day of school with friends before you all go your separate ways. Here are some fun ideas–for all ages–to make that day extra special:
If you want to keep the party close to home and you have a pool, then create a pool party. Your decorations and party goods can be based on your school colors. Be sure to have lots of balloons (always an inexpensive but colorful decoration). Keep the food easy. Maybe barbecue! If it’s just snacks, finger food is fun. Have different kinds of snacks to grab; they are always cute in buckets or small pails. Likewise, keep water bottles around to help people stay hydrated.
If you live near a beach, you can use that as your location. Maybe even bring a volleyball net to the beach to get a fun game going. Whether you are at a pool or the beach, if the party goes into the evening, you can bring out the s’mores. S’mores make everything more fun! Be sure to have your graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate handy. When the sun goes down and the bonfire starts, that’s always a good time to share your memories from the school year.
A great way to share those memories is to have everyone who attends bring photos from the previous years. Looking back at everything you experienced makes for tons of fun and lots of laughs.
If you are not looking to have a pool or beach party, why not get a bunch of friends to the movies? The bigger the group, the better. And be sure to make it a comedy. The last days of school may be sad, and you don’t want to add unnecessary tears to the mix. Provide lots of snacks and have everyone sit together. If the group is large enough, there are even ways to rent out the theater and have a private party there.
Whatever you decide to do at the end of the school year, make it fun and about you and your friends. It’s a day you will always remember.
