kindergarten graduation ideas

Kindergarten graduation ideas are here!  These ideas would also be easily adaptable for a pre-school graduation celebration too.  It's a special time for these little students so we have created a theme just for them! Up, Up and Way you Go using balloons and our favorite Dr. Seuss book, Oh, the Places You'll Go!   This idea would work for a family kindergarten graduation celebration as well as a fun addition to an in-school graduation ceremony.  So teachers, class moms and parents, take a look at this fun graduation party theme that the kids will love!

"Oh,The Places You'll Go" is one of our favorite books of all time.. it is a celebration of the future and what lies ahead... so perfect for a kindergarten or pre-school graduation celebration! So it would be a good read aloud to start off their graduation. Click on the photo and you can learn more about this story if you are not familiar with it.

Our kindergarten graduation theme.. Up and Away Fun, You're off to Grade 1! Look at this adorable Up and Away cupcake display.  So easy.. make the cupcakes, color the frosting in a rainbow of colors, or all the same.  You display them on a piece of bulletin board paper. Once you place them on the paper, then draw the balloon strings with a magic marker and add one final cupcake as the center of the bow.  

You can put a graduation cap on the top using this cute idea from our graduation food article.

If you are serving snacks to your little graduates.. look at this cute idea, perfect since they will be getting ready for a summer of fun.  Get each child a beach pail, using a paint pen add their name and draw a couple of colorful balloons on the bucket. Even the most artistically challenged, present company included can draw balloons.  We did this idea for a birthday party many years ago and it was such a huge hit it was recyled for so many parties!
