Each year, we do these photos for the first and last day of school.  They hold up a chalkboard with some basic information about the year and what they have learned.

Interview your kids for keepsakes.

This is a fun way to remember how your kids were at each stage.  It's a simple interview to keep and look back on year after year.  You can print it for free here.

Go out for ice cream or a special dinner

Ice Cream

After picking up the kids from school with their piles of stuff from the classroom, head out to your local ice cream shop or fun restaurant to celebrate.

Pick up a special cake or cupcakes to celebrate


Another simple, yet delicious way to celebrate the last day of school, cake!  I find any excuse to get cake.

Stock up for summer reading


We go to the bookstore every year after the last day of school to pick out books to read over summer break.  We even get a workbook or two and maybe a new board game.  

Make a family summer bucket lists

Summer bucket list

While eating our special dinner or treat, we come up with a family summer bucket list, within reason of course.  My kids usually make one up with their neighborhood friends as well. To download this bucket list, click here.

Go for a picnic

Pack up a fun meal or snack and head to the pack for a picnic.  This is also a great time to come up with a summer bucket list.

Camp out in your backyard


What a great way to kick off your summer break!  Pitch a tent in the backyard and camp out as a family. S'more are also a must.
