Achieving a milestone in life is always a special moment for anyone. As much as the person cherishes it, his/her entire family and friends also celebrate the same as an important day. As parents, we love each and every big or small step of success of our children. One such day of celebration, where our child takes the next step into the future is his/her graduation day, whether in preschool or high school. It is surely a day to remember for every child and their parents.
Graduation Day symbolizes past learning, present determination and a dream for the future. And, all this definitely calls for a celebration. So, if you have a son or daughter, who is graduating, either from pre-school or high school, you might consider throwing a party for his/her achievement to make the day special and memorable. Here are some cool graduation day party ideas to arrange for an exciting party for your child, family and friends.
You can choose your child’s old photos like the first day in class or the first stage performance, or the first drawing or poem, etc, to make decoration garlands or flags to make the event livelier with memories. Everybody, including your child will love to see the journey; he/she has gone through to reach this stage.
Graffiti Board Or Memory Jar:
A graffiti board is a cool idea for the guest to congratulate your child and write words of appreciation, encouragement or wisdom. You and your child would love to look at it, many years down the line and it will surely bring a smile on your faces. You can make graffiti cards, where people can write their messages and drop in a memory jar, which can be shaped like a graduation cap.
Graduation Cake Or Cupcakes:
The cakes, cupcakes or cookies can be made like caps, or diploma certificates, or anything related to the event. The kids will love your creativity, according to the theme and savour the delicacies.
Yes, of course, this is a must. Pictures are the most important memories of an event. So, keep some graduation props, like caps, certificates, a frame like ‘Class of’, or things related to graduation, which will make the photos exciting and fun to remember.
Letter To Self Or Wish List:
Finally, with this, you can encourage your child to make a promise to himself/herself for the future. Let them write a letter to themselves about their dreams or aspirations from that day on wards and you can keep it safe. Probably, you can show this letter or their wish list, years later, when they have crossed bigger milestones to see what they wanted and how much of it have they achieved.
The Graduation Day party is all about your child and an appreciation for his/her success. So, try to keep a cool, quirky or so-called young theme. This is also to motivate him/her for the journey ahead, so try to encourage, appreciate, and applaud as much as you can. If you are not looking for a lavish or grand celebration, you can keep it simple by inviting his/her friends (as it is their big day too) and enjoy with some snacks, music and dance. A party is always fun, and so let them live the moment before they embark on another journey to achieve one more milestone.
