Fun End-of-Year Adventure: Kindergarten Field Trip Extravaganza!

Looking for fun end-of-year ideas?

Well, hold onto your hats because our kindergarten team cooked up a fantastic final hurrah: a trip to the park packed with five super fun stations—one for each of our five awesome classes!

Bright and early one sunny morning, we gathered our little explorers and set off for a nearby park. Our mission? To have a blast and make lasting memories. Each station had its own charm and activities, ensuring every child had a whirlwind of fun. All parents were invited. They walked with us to the park and helped their child during each activity, as needed. I found some similar items that you might like for your own fun day.

Station 1: Parachute Palooza


First up was the Parachute Station. As soon as the kids caught sight of that huge colorful canopy, their eyes lit up like fireworks! Parents and children gathered ’round as we made waves with the parachute, giggling as it puffed up and down in the breeze. Then came the thrill of running under it in a countdown frenzy—first the boys, then the girls, then the parents, and even a game of cat and mouse that had everyone in stitches. By the end, we all flopped down on the parachute, catching our breath and soaking in the joy of the moment.

Station 2: Playground Paradise


Next, it was off to the Playground Station, a constant favorite. The playground was a hive of activity with slides, swings, and climbing frames galore. Kids dashed around, their imaginations soaring as they explored new challenges and honed their motor skills. From solving playground puzzles to collaborating on swings, this station was a hub of playful learning.

Station 3: Hula Hoops and Jump Rope Jamboree


At the Hula Hoops and Jump Rope Station, borrowed from our school’s gym, the laughter continued. Kids twirled hula hoops around their waists and jumped rope with enthusiasm, mastering the art of timing their jumps to the rope’s rhythmic swings. Simple yet effective, these activities kept them active and taught valuable lessons in sharing, taking turns, and cheering on their friends.

Station 4: Chalk-a-licious


The Chalk Station was a riot of color and creativity. Kids sprawled on the ground, creating vibrant masterpieces, writing their names in bold letters, and inventing intricate hopscotch courses. It was amazing to see how their drawing and writing skills had blossomed throughout the year, all while fostering teamwork and sparking imaginative collaborations.

Station 5: Sack Race Showdown

Last but certainly not least, the Sack Races Station brought out the competitive spirit in everyone. With sacks borrowed from one of our adventurous teachers, kids lined up eagerly. First, with parents at the other end to guide them, the girls hopped and giggled their way to the finish line, showcasing their expert jumping skills. Then it was the boys’ turn, with laughter echoing as they tackled the challenge with enthusiasm, some tumbling but all having a blast.

Mission Accomplished!

After a whirlwind of laughter, challenges, and creativity at all five stations, we packed up our memories and headed back to school. Exhausted but brimming with excitement, the kids eagerly shared stories of their escapades with parents and friends. It was a perfect end-of-year celebration—one that blended fun, learning, and unforgettable moments.

So, if you’re planning your own end-of-year bash, take a cue from our adventure-packed day. Whether it’s parachutes, playgrounds, hula hoops, chalk, or sack races, these activities are guaranteed to bring smiles and create memories that will last a lifetime. Here’s to the joy of childhood and the magic of kindergarten adventures!


Want to have your own fun?

You can ask your school’s coach if  you can borrow some equipment for a field trip or to use during recess time. If they do not have what you need, you can get your own or use different stations. I found some similar items that you might like. Take a look and see if these would work for you. One thing for sure, you and your students will have a blast!  As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

End of the Year Party Ideas 2

Are you looking for end of the year party ideas? Since I have been creating some alphabet booklets, I decided to go with an alphabet party theme. This is a fun theme for a Preschool or Kindergarten classroom. It turned out so colorful with some items from Oriental Trading and magnetic letters placed around the table.
You do not have to label every item in the party. I just chose a few items for the main table. Take a look below.

Aa is for apples.

Bb is for bananas.

Bb is for beach ball. 

These beach balls can be used as student gifts and for decoration.

Cc is for cupcakes.

Cc is for cups.
Dd is for drinks.

Ss is for spoons.

Pp is for popcorn.

Jj is for juice.

Gg is for gifts.

Books are the traditional end of the year gift. Just order from Scholastic throughout the year. 

Dd is for diplomas. 

You could also do Cc for certificates. Instead of laminating the diplomas, you can slide them into these Dry-Erase Sleeves.
This is how colorful the main party table looks. I Love the Bright Colorful Buckets and they are much bigger than I expected. It gives it a ready for Summer feeling. 
Their oversized Easy Clean Flat Trays were perfect for some of our food displays. 

This Colorful Commencement Table Cover completes the look. It’s so pretty!

I spelled the word congrats with their Alphabet Stamps. This would probably make a good background for student pictures!

Here are couple of more pictures of the graduation party table. I love it!

End of the Year/ Graduation Gift Ideas

I loved teaming up with Oriental Trading. They provided the samples free of charge for an honest review. I can tell you that I LOVE everything that I received in this box. The bright colors are eye-catching and everything that I used was over-sized. I thought that the items were going to be much smaller because each order includes several items, but I was wrong. The buckets are actually deep, the trays are long and wide, the alphabet stampers are big enough for adult hands and the dry erase sleeves are big and sturdy. Ummm… did you know that the package of beach balls includes 12 individually wrapped balls? They are the perfect size… not too big, not too small. What I like best is that I can use the buckets, trays and sleeves  for so many other projects, displays or storage. Love, Love, Love it all!

How to create this theme

What’s in the box?
1- Alphabet Stamps (1 set)
2- Dry Erase Sleeves- Brights (12 per package)
3- Bright Colorful Bucket asst (4 per package)

End of the Year Party Favor Ideas

My niece, Abby, had her 6th grade graduation party last week. She is the school’s Queen for the year and wanted to make something fun to give out to her classmates during their end of the year celebration. Abby and her mom (my sister) came up with the idea of making party favors out of ring pops and caramel popcorn. All they needed was a cute saying and the tags to attach to the party favor baggies. My sister called me up for a little help and this is what I came up with… I LOVE how they turned out 🙂


You can find the party favor tags for class rings here.
