End the Virtual School Year with an Outdoor Event

outdoor event

For many youngsters, their school year was a virtual one – at least in part – while others never made it into the classroom at all. Now is a great time to get the gang together to end the school year with an outdoor event. It will enable kids to visit with their friends and get some much-needed exercise. Outdoor events are also safer in terms of the pandemic.

Outdoor events can be held at home, in a park, or an outdoor venue can be booked. The location will have an impact on the type of refreshments served to the amusements and decorations that are planned. Conversely, there are many events that really don’t need decorations – just people sharing good times.

There are dozens of ideas for celebrating, whether it’s an event held during the day or in the evening. Commemorate the event with a T-shirt or other keepsake that can be imprinted with a novel message.

Water Party

This is a great idea for at-home events. Give everyone a squirt gun or large supply of water balloons and let the fun begin. For those that have the available space, consider renting a water slide.

Ice Cream Bar

Nothing says summer like ice cream and it’s an ideal way to kick off the end of the virtual school year. Play music appropriate to the event and offer attendees a rainbow of ice cream flavors, along with their favorite toppings.

Scavenger Hunt

Hide summer-related items around the yard appropriate for the kids’ age. Let them search for items such as sunglasses, small bottles of sunscreen, bubbles and sidewalk chalk, miniature inflatable beach balls, beach toys and paddle balls.

Be Inventive

Parents can throw a tailgate party or backyard BBQ, hold a movie night, a pool party, or camp out in the backyard. Inflatables are available ranging from games and mazes to bounce houses, along with bubble machines and foam/snow machines to create a winterscape. The important thing is to just have fun and celebrate the end of a virtual school year that’s kept everyone cooped up indoors.
