Preschool Graduation Celebration Ideas

So, your child is graduating from preschool. After wiping away the tears (yours, not your child's), what else is there to do but throw a party? After all, it is a pretty big deal when kids transition to kindergarten.

Before you start reminiscing about the last few years, spend some time on a fun get-together dedicated to your little graduate. These preschool graduation celebration ideas show how simple and special it can be.

Preschool Graduation Activities

The only entertainment you need at a preschool graduation party is a CD of favorite songs playing on repeat. The interactive, happy sounds of most little kids songs make everyone want to jump up and turn in circles.

Some classics include:

Old McDonald Had a Farm
Head and Shoulders
The Wheels on the Bus
The Alphabet Song
One, Two Buckle My Shoe
Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
Mary Had a Little Lamb
Teddy Bear, Teddy Bear
3 Little Ducks

Preschool Graduation Favors

Giving out favors for a preschool graduation partyis not required. It is, however, a nice way to say thanks to everyone who came to celebrate this special day in your childs life.

Don't worry about giving out elaborate gifts. A small token featuring the preschool graduate is all you need.

Attach wallet-size photographs of your child's schoolpicture to colored or patterned paper. Trim the paper leaving a small border around the photo as a frame.

Buy individual-sized packs of your child's favorite candy. Wrap them in a decorated bag tied with ribbon.

For the graduate and her friends, give out small blank notebooks, crayons, stickers or other art supplies. Peruse dollar stores and discount bins at other stores for inexpensive choices; the kids will not mind!
