Last Day of School~After School Party Time

Here are 5 Fun Ideas for After School Party Time.

1.  WATER, WATER, WATER! Lets all hope for a beautiful sunny day so the kids can party in the water Invite the class, the block, whatever!  Last year we had a backyard party with slip n slides, water inflatables, kiddie pools, water balloons, sprinklers, etc!  We had a movie and some crafty things as well but the kids had so much fun in the water they wouldnt stop for movies or crafts!! 

Here are some other fun water ideas I have seen: 
~Attack them with water guns or balloons as they get off the bus or walk up to the house!
~Play water games like sponge relays, water balloon catch or volleyball, carry the water balloon on a spoon, fill the cup on partners head with a water gun, all turns into a water fight anyway!

2.  Krispy Kreme and Wahooz (or "Boondocks", the local fun center)!  If the weather is not so good, take their new report cards to places like Krispy Kreme and Wahooz for free donuts and free tokens for their good grades!  **Please leave a comment if you know of other great places that give freebies for good grades!

3.  Sundae Bar!  Have a Sundae Potluck!  Last year our kids loved the "Last Day of School" build your own Sundae bar!  Have everyone bring some toppings to share and the host can provide the icecream.  We had a serious spread!

4.  Have a P.O.O.L Party:  Playing Outside On the Lawn...If its nice but not warm enough for water play, set up Croquet, Bocce Ball, Badminton, Volleyball, Kickball, Baseball, Horse Shoes, (or whatever you have in your garage).  If you have a big group you can divide and send groups around to games in a rotation.  If it is smaller you can just rotate as one big group! 
Have prizes for the winners and winning teams!

5.  Create a "Last" day of School Scavenger Hunt:  I know my oldest would love this!!  Have the kids divide into teams and go around the neighborhood, yard, or block to collect the "LASTS" of things around the neighbors homes and yards.  (Be sure the neighbors are warned ahead of time and willing to participate)

Set some rules like:  They only get 10 houses and 10 minutes.  Tell them the specific houses they should go to so they dont bother your whole neighborhood! 

Here is a list I was sitting here thinking of...

Go to a neighbors house and ask "May I have your last...(see below)" 

The last Banana (or any fruit you list there)?
The last of your current roll of Toilet Paper?
The last of your bottle of Ketchup?
The last newspaper you read?
The last piece of gum in your purse?
The last of your tube of toothpaste?
The last of the bottle of soap at the bathroom sink?
The last coin in your wallet?
The last can you opened?
The last soda in your fridge?

The kids on the team that is the most successful can each win a prize like a box of candy labeled "The Last box of movie candy".

Our district just cancelled our last day of school and made the last FULL day our official "Last Day of School" which kind of hampers our usual all afternoon party plans...but we will make it work! 
I hope you all have a happy last day of school too!


  1. Chuck E Cheese also gives free tokens for good report cards. :o)

  2. I hope you don't mind, I posted a link to your site on my facebook wall. You have great ideas many of which I did when my kids were little. It looks like you will have a great summer.
    I also used the free reading program that the local libraries set up, free days that Museums calendar each month and we explored the city with penny walks and rode the ferry to the different islands from Seattle.

  3. Love the sundae potluck idea!! A great way for the kids to celebrate and to get to know our neighbors! I'm planning on doing one!

  4. Everyone loves what you guys tend to be up too. This sort of clever work
