The kids are back in school, so it’s time to celebrate a new year and a fresh start. Hosting a back-to-school party gets friends and family members together to say goodbye to summer and get ready for fall. Here are several amazing ideas for making the kids' entertainment bash a memorable event.
5 Party Tips to Celebrate Going Back to School
1. Share Summer Memories
Create an environment for the party guests to talk about their summer activities. From vacations and camp to visiting relatives, kids will be eager to share their personal experiences. In the invitation, encourage everyone to bring pictures, souvenirs, and other mementos to show off.
2. Donate Supplies
Kids’ entertainment can be as rewarding as it is fun. Ask party guests to bring notebook paper, pens, pencils, crayons, glue sticks, and other school supplies to donate. As the host, you can provide sturdy bags and notecards for the kids to create thoughtful care packages for students in need.
3. Act Out Sketches
For some kids, going back to school or attending for the first time can be daunting. Write down several situations that are likely to occur such as getting lost, keeping up with homework, or making new friends. Have the kids act out each scenario and share their best advice.
4. Make School-Themed Goodies
Since this is a kids' entertainment soiree with a back-to-school theme, go all out with the snacks. Make or order cakes, cupcakes, and cookies with school-related decorations. Playground equipment, school buses, apples for teachers, notebooks—the ideas are endless! Be sure to ask parents and guardians first if their children have any food allergies.
5. Play School-Related Games
Think about the many activities that take place in school each day: eating in the cafeteria, putting books in a locker, doing math problems on the blackboard. Then, come up with creative games centered around those activities. For instance, see who can open a combination lock the fastest or create a contest for the wackiest back-to-school outfit. Make the games fun and age-appropriate.
