It's not too early to start planning for the graduate's big day. Here are a few ideas to help you get started.
Give out fun 2006 sunglasses for all the kids to wear, and a crown for the special graduate
Create your own invitations by drawing graduation themes such as diplomas and graduation caps. You can roll the invitation to look like a diploma.
Games & Activities
Kids love to get together and just talk- so remember not to overdo the planned activities. Here are a few to choose from:
*Guests bring a white t-shirt and sign each other's shirts.
*Do a time capsule with memorable items from their school year- to be opened at a future reunion. Guests place personal notes to the graduate as memorable keepsakes.
*Make a large poster board collage of the graduate's pictures from baby to now.
*Water balloon toss
*Place a sticker on each guest's back with the name of a teacher. Guests give clues and help the person guess that teacher.
*Pin the tail on the teacher. Tape a teacher's picture to a wall and then the "tail" can be any item of choice- crazy hair, earring, etc.
Food & Drink
Any finger food works well, since guests are more interested in talking and socializing. Nachos served in miniature sombreros and salsa is great to have on each table.
Above all, provide an atmosphere for that is comfortable for plenty of conversation and reminiscing. Happy graduation!
