    Last Day of School Party Ideas

    Looking for last day of school party ideas? Celebrate sleeping in, no schedule, fighting kids and blistering hot temperatures with a party!

    Several moms in our neighborhood got together and threw the kids a surprise last day of school party. These moms are so crafty. The only thing I can take credit for is the Target bought lemonade, cookies and the photos.

    The last day of school party was held at a park near the school. We had the kids meet us near the park. Several of us moms decorated the park area and setup fun activities listed below.  Right after school let out, half of the moms met up with the kids and led them to the park. There were a couple dozen kids. It was crazy, but boy they had fun and it was definitely a memory that they’ll have.

    Schools Out for the Summer

    There was a massive banner that said “Welcome Summer” for the kids to run through.

    How to Make Marshmallow Poppers

    We made marshmallow poppers using Solo cups and balloons. You tie off the balloons and cut the top of the balloons off. Cut the Solo cups in half (horizontally). You will keep the end with the lip. Take the balloon and fit it over the lip. Now you have a marshmallow popper.

    We then lined up the kids and had a marshmallow popping contest to see who could pop their marshmallow the farthest.

    Water Sponge Fight

    In addition to the marshmallow balloon poppers, we did a water sponge fight which the kids loved. Simple, just full bins with water, throw in some sponges – let them attack each other and get wet!

    Party Food

    Hot dogs, fruit, cookies, cake, chips and lemonade served buffet style completed the last day of school party.

    Them Kids Vlog Summer

    In honor of school being out for the summer – and wanting to foster our kids’ thirst using our computers. At our Z’s request – our older kids, who we affectionately refer to as them kids – shot their first vlog. They’ll be chronicling their adventures through the summer and reviewing websites, games and apps.
