If you are looking for ideas for the kids’ end of school year parties – look no further. Here is a great list of ideas on how to celebrate with a last day of school party!
Several moms in our neighborhood got together and threw the kids a surprise last day of school party. These moms are so crafty.
1. Designing a big Welcome Summer Banner
Create a massive banner using the Canva site to create “Welcome Summer” and then you can print it with the size you love. It is used for the kids to run through right after the final bell on the last day of school. This is a wonderful end of school party idea for celebrating the last day of school.
2. Last Day of School Activities
Here is several traditional last day of school activities that are great ideas for your end of year celebration.
- How to Make Marshmallow Poppers
Who doesn’t love a good war, but let’s do it with marshmallows! Using a DIY marshmallow popper that costs nothing to make and is super easy to create will be a huge hit with the kids!
Marshmallow popper DIY craft for end of school party
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.
- Last Day of School T-shirt Ideas
Here are last day of school shirt ideas. These last day of school activities involving shirts make a fun activity with a keepsake to help remember the school year.
- T-shirt with a unique design - DIY unique T-shirts by using designs at Print Vector
2. Tie dye shirts – this is a fun school party activity.
3. Sign shirts – have everyone bring a blank shirt to sign. All teachers will need is sharpies!
- Count down the last day with balloons
Balloons day is something our kids’ elementary school does and would make a great last day of school activity. Each child brings balloons to school and they will fill balloons with notes or wishes, and dreams and then drop them in the sky.
3. End of the School Year Party Feast
Create a huge end of the school year party feast with the kid's love foods. Use a tool like Shoppee Foods to help easily support the parents on who brings what food.
Pizza, Hot dogs, fruit, cookies, cupcakes, chips, and lemonade served buffet-style completed our end of the school year party.

4. Show your love to the Teachers
Let’s face it – as hard as this school year has been – the real kudos go to all of these hard-working teachers. Find a way to celebrate the teachers at the end of the year. Maybe have each child write a note in a journal or frame a photo of the class of students. Teachers love gift cards (and flowers – well most do at least!)
If you have a funny teacher who has a sense of humor (best if you know the teacher well – also works well if you have friends that are teachers) – print them off one of these funny teacher memes on the last day of school memes!
