With 10 months of drop-offs, pick-ups, homework marathons, school events and extracurriculars almost behind you, are you ready to celebrate? Summer can be a welcome break from the stress. Kick it off by starting some last day traditions. We put together the following suggestions:
Recreate their “first day” photo – On the first day of school, you probably took a photo of your little student going off to school. You can recreate the photo for a side-by-side comparison, and see how your child has grown over the year.
Find a last day food – Maybe it’s french fries, pancakes or ice cream—start a last day tradition indulging in one of the family’s favourite foods.
Involve some friends – For 10 months, your child has been with the same friends day after day, week after week. Next year, your child might be with a different set of kids. Commemorate the year that’s passed with a playdate or get-together with these friends, and make sure you get a picture to keep as a memento!
Just relax – What better way to cap off a hectic year than with an evening of total relaxation? Order in, watch a movie, play some games—whatever puts the family in a chill, ready-for-summer mood.
Do you have any traditions? Let us know on the post on our Facebook page.
