10+ Fun Ways to Celebrate the Last Day of School

Summer is coming and the end of the 2021 – 2022 school year is near thus this is the best time to celebrate!
Well, Do you have any plans last day of school traditions? We always go get cookies with friends and younger brother, and sister on the last morning before school time and then let the kids pick somewhere special for dinner on the last day {apparently we are all about celebrating with food at my house!} Last year, we did a holiday at Phu Quoc for 3 days with our family, and other years we’ve gotten together with friends for a swim party.
Whether you’re wrapping up a year in preschool, elementary school, middle school, or high school, reaching the finish line of this school year definitely is a memorable celebration for parents, kids, and teachers. We’ve got a list of fun ideas for you if you’re looking for the last day of school activities.
  • Take lots of the Last Day of School Photos

Don’t forget to document how much the kids have changed from Fall 2021! Snap that last day of school photo {take it when they get home for a true end-of-school memento!}
  • Water Balloons War

Have a water balloon fight, bring out the squirt guns, or set up the slip ‘n slide or sprinkler. Parents can get in on the water fun too!
  • School Year Walk of Fame

Make signs celebrating the milestones of this school year. You can hang the signs around the house OR chalk your sidewalk or driveway to celebrate. Get creative here… Joined basketball club, Met AR goals, Made new friends, Learned to read, Never missed the bus… just a few ideas to get you started.
  • Summer Fun Box

Have a box for summer fun waiting for the kids to open on the last day of school. Ideas include sidewalk chalk, bubbles, water balloons, sunglasses, sunscreen, bug spray, bathing suits, coloring books, and more.
  • Autograph Books

Making an autograph book with signatures of friends or teachers as well as the cutest pics with friends and classmates. 
  • Have a Campout

Do you own a tent or camping gear? Kick off the summer with a backyard campout. If you don’t own a tent, you can still plan an indoor campout in the family room.
  • Having a Dance Party

I almost forgot one of our summer traditions! We hire a karaoke room and have a crazy party with music and beer. 
  • Stay up Late

If you normally send the kids to bed by 8 or 9pm, let them stay up late to celebrate the start of summer break. {Especially if they’re still hyped up from the ice cream you enjoyed earlier!}
