What kid wouldn’t love an end of year or “Welcome Summer” party on the last day of school? Well, that is just what we did last year for my sons last day of 1st grade!!!
The morning started with a fun breakfast with a smiley face pancake and note telling my big boy to have an awesome last day of school! I then got out my colors and made a huge sign that read “Welcome Summer” and hung it on the front porch for him to run through when he got out of school! On the back deck I had tons of water balloons ready to launch at his brothers and sisters and neighborhood friends! We then topped the evening off with some yummy fresh popped popcorn, candy & an evening on the lawn watching a movie under the stars with all the neighborhood friends! What a perfect day/evening it was!!! Now….what to do this year…only a few weeks left, I best put my thinking cap on!!!
Enjoy the pictures!!
I hope I helped inspire you to have a little end of year party for your kiddos!!! Could be as simple as a pitcher of lemonade and fresh cookies waiting for them on the front porch with a smaller version of “Welcome Summer” sign. Anything to get a huge smile on the faces of those little ones and welcome summer with open arms! 🙂
