Last Day of School

May 22, 2014

written by Cathy Baker, mom of two sweet tweens, who love both school and summer vacation

What is it about the last day of school? The day itself holds so much joy and the promise of lazier, sunnier days ahead!  We are counting down the days here (although with having to make up 10 of our 13 snow days, it’s much further away than I wish it was!)

I thought some of these ideas to celebrate the last day of the school year were just to not share!

balloons car

How fun would it be to show up in the pickup line with a car full of balloons?

summer welcome

Or how about this  to welcome them home? I’d probably decorate the front door or garage door!



Or how about a water balloon/water gun ambush when they get off the bus? Also, have a box of Popsicles ready to share after the initial excitement winds down! :)

love this idea- have a "welcome to summer" sign w/ a bucket filled w/ summer toys (beach balls, bubble toys, swim goggles, sand toys, sunglasses, etc) waiting for the kids when they get home on the last day of school.

Or how about a fun gift like this waiting on the kitchen counter for them?

Hope you are able to use one of these ideas to add some smiles to your kiddos faces!!
