By GameTruck Richmond May 12, 2017

May is upon us, which means that the end of the school year is just around the corner. In just a few short weeks, students will be putting down their pencils and notebooks and waving goodbye to their classmates for the summer.

Looking for a way to reward your kids for good grades? Kick off the summer and give your kids the send-off they deserve with these five ideas for end of school year parties.

1. Graduation Party

Whether your child is graduating from elementary school, middle school, or high school, graduating marks an important milestone in your child’s life and the arrival of new beginnings. Celebrate your child’s academic accomplishments by hosting a fun end-of-the-year graduation party with their classmates!

Party tip: Consider having everyone at the party sign yearbooks or t-shirts as a memento that they can hold onto for years to come!

2. Summer Pool Party

Nothing says summer quite like a pool party. Round up your child’s closest friends and enjoy the sunny summer weather by throwing your very own pool party. This is an inexpensive way to celebrate the end of the school year and welcome the summer season. Don’t have a pool? No problem. Get an inflatable pool and a slip n’ slide and watch your kids have a blast.

Party tip: Buy summer items like beach towels, floaties and pool toys. You will be able to use these items as decorations for your party and they will be functional long after the party ends!

3. Carnival Party

Whether held at home or at school, a carnival party is an exciting way to celebrate the end of the school year. There are plenty of carnival games online to choose from and decorations can be made from simple supplies, such as cardboard and paint.

Party tip: Offer additional activities like face painting and making snow cones for added fun!

4. Laser Tag Party

Looking for an activity that both kids and parents will love? GameTruck powered LaserTag captures the excitement of paintball without any of the pain or mess. Whether you decide to play in teams or free-for-all, laser tag is a great way to get your kids outside and moving.
