Kindergarten graduation marks the beginning of the rest of your child’s school years and the wonderful growth that’s to come. What better way is there to capture the moment than by throwing an epic party to celebrate the occasion and honor of your little grad?
That’s why we’ve put together this list of tips to help you plan the most exciting and memorable graduation for your kindergartener.
Choose a themeA theme is a great way to help you choose decorations, food, games, and party favors and make your party even more memorable. Choose a theme that’s simple and reflects the meaning of the event or your child’s unique personality. Here are a few ideas to get you started:
- A theme based on your child’s favorite kindergarten book
- A kinder “garden” themed party that honors how they’ve grown and bloomed
- A space themed party that celebrates your superstar and their “blasting off” into new frontiers
Plan fun and festive games
Preparing some engaging and entertaining games will ensure a great time for your young partiers. A beanbag toss can inspire some lively competition outdoors, while picture charades can get everyone laughing at an indoor event.
Get them a grad cap
A mortar board cap is one of the most iconic images of graduation and can help your little grad feel like the guest of honor. Order a cap fit for a kindergarten grad in their school’s color or their favorite color that they can decorate for the occasion.
Take celebratory snapshots
While you’ll no doubt be taking tons of photos during your party, organizing a photo booth can be a fun and playful way for guests to make memories. Frames and props can make for lots of laughs and silly snapshots.
Create a party playlist
Have your grad help you create a kid friendly playlist with their favorite songs and other upbeat tunes to set the tone of your party and get people dancing. There’s no need to buy or rent an expensive sound system, a Bluetooth speaker is an affordable, easy (and sometimes even waterproof) way to pump up the jams.
