13 Graduation Party Ideas

It's the end of the school year and your little one is getting ready to move to big kid school—kindergarten! Celebrate the new beginning by throwing a very special graduation party complete with friends, crafts and lots of energetic fun. From creating your own invitations and brainstorming fun crafts to setting up a wacky "Get to Kindergarten" obstacle course, this step-by-step guide is packed with fun ideas to get you started.

What You Need:

  • Card stock (one sheet per invitation)
  • Clear drying, non-toxic glue
  • Computer with printer
  • Printer paper
  • Markers
  • Scissors
  • Assorted colored paper such as construction and tissue paper and gift wrap
  • Glue/ glue sticks
  • Markers
  • Tempera paints
  • Paint brushes
  • 2 large cardboard boxes (try reusing a moving or packing box)
  • Tempera paints
  • Paint brushes
  • Markers
  • Large outdoor space
  • Scissors

What You Do:

Make the Invitations

  1. Design the inside of the invitation to look like a diploma. Using a word processing program, create two identical diplomas on the page, one on top of the other. Many word processors come with diploma and/or award templates that you can use to create this part.
  2. Type the important party information in each diploma, such as date, time, location, RSVP contact info, and reason for the party. Design a fun border around each diploma, and add a graduation-themed clipart image if you like.
  3. Print out as many diplomas as you'll need for your invitations. Each print-out includes two diplomas, so print one sheet per two invitations.
  4. Help your child fold the card stock in half and cut out the diplomas.
  5. Ask him to paste one diploma to the inside of each folded card. Let dry.
  6. To add decoration to the front of the invitations, encourage him to draw a special picture on the front of each one. Try a school-themed design such as a stack of books or a box of crayons, or something simpler such as a few brightly-colored shapes.
  7. Mail or hand deliver the invitations to party invitees.
