The end of the school year is near! That means it’s time to celebrate with fun activities and games before the final bell rings.
Take some inspiration from our Awesome Academy class with 9 fun ways to end the school year and celebrate your achievements with friends!
1. MAKE A TOP 10 LIST
What’s better than making a list? Filling it up with the best things ever!
Make a school-themed list of the top 10 things you learned over the semester, fun memories you had, or goals you achieved. Then get together with friends and share your selections!
2. SEND OUT COMPLIMENTS
Write a compliment for each student in your class and hand them out on your last day to help your classmates end the school year with a big smile!
Add crafts to the mix by using colors to personalize each note. That way, the other students can have a keepsake to remind them of your time together!
3. CREATE A YEARBOOK
Which of your friends is most likely to be a future Olympian? Or who loves to travel the most?
Play our OG Superlatives game by writing the names of your classmates under the activity that best describes them. You can also add your own special topics to grow the list and create a mini yearbook for an end-of-semester event!
4. SUMMER BUCKET LIST
Make your summer dreams come true by creating a list of activities to do or try for the first time. From camping and stargazing to tasting new foods or building a backyard splash park, kick off this summer with a blast!
5. BRING A STORY TO LIFE
Film a movie with Mienna, take pizza-baking lessons from Francesca, or put on a concert like Layla!
Recreate scenes from your favorite books that you read this year or bring new stories to life with OG Friends to discover fun adventures!
Psst: check out all our stories on the OG Bookshelf for more inspiration!
6. FILL UP YOUR DAYS WITH MEMORIES
Create the ultimate calendar month by filling up each day with activities and fun facts!
Write down things you learned or activities you performed and stick them to the days you accomplished them. At the end of the month, your calendar will be filled with knowledge, memories, and fun!
Here’s a fun fact to get you started: Today, I learned that 1 day on planet Venus is almost 8 months on Earth!
7. DANCE PARTY PLAYLIST
Make a playlist of your favorite songs that you heard this school year to celebrate a semester well done. Then have a dance party with friends and family to showcase your best dance moves!
8. SAY “CHEESE!”
Just like taking a picture to remember the first day of school, pose for a photo on the last day to include in a scrapbook and remember your journey. Then snap a few extra pictures with friends, family, and silly poses!
9. THANK YOU ART FOR TEACHERS
Dig into your creative skills and craft a thank you card to show your teachers how much you appreciated their help during the year! It was not an easy semester, and even a small, kind gesture will go a long way in supporting the ones who help us learn and achieve our dreams every day.
Congratulations on completing your school year!
