Can you believe another school year is coming to an end? Most kids are probably counting down the days until summer break and are excited to trade their books for beach balls and popsicles, but in reality, they’re going to miss their friends soon after starting break. Here are some fun ways to celebrate their graduation and commemorate the wonderful school year they had so they can look back on all of their achievements from the school year.
Remembering the milestones
Whether it’s from college or preschool, graduation is a big deal! Learning is hard work and it’s important to acknowledge your child’s academic achievements so they feel empowered and ready to move on to the next grade. Here is a great resource for free printables to celebrate graduations, ranging from class rings to diplomas.
Our little ones are only little brief amount of time. Before we know it, they are going to be graduating from high school and preparing to move on to college. These preschool graduation printables offer a fun, simple way to remember what your child’s favorite things were when they were little such as their best friends, what they want to be when they grow up, favorite color, book, animal, food, movie, and toys. Print out the same form every year and watch as they results change. Save them all in a binder and give them to your child when they graduate.
This “Oh the Places You’ll Go” balloon craft is such a fun way to remember what your child said they hoped to be when they grew up. Blow up a small balloon, attach a twisty pipe cleaner as the string, and cut out a picture of your child taken on the last day of school. Below that, on a small printed card, write their dream career choice.
Remembering our friends
The end of the school year is a very emotional time as friends get ready to part ways for the summer, and sometimes even move away. You can create a simple autograph book using cardstock paper and a ring binder with a ribbon tied around it to create a beautiful book to help remember all the wonderful friends your child made throughout the year.
A tasty treat to celebrate
Graduating school is a lot of work. These cupcake graduation caps are a tasty way to celebrate the end of the school year and are very simple to make. Stack a chocolate covered graham cracker on top of a chocolate cupcake. Use frosting to bind them together. Place an M&M candy on top and tie a tassel around it.
Congratulations to your graduates! This is a huge accomplishment for them and you’ll be so happy that you saved these sweet memories when they’re all grown up. If you have a favorite way to commemorate these moments, share them with us in the comments! Have a fun and safe summer break!
