Back To School? Have One Last Hurrah This Summer!

Posted

Summer is almost over (insert tears here) but that doesn’t mean it has to end with a fizzle.  Go back to school with a bang of confetti-filled fun!  Pool parties, farewell parties, team celebrations – there are plenty of ways to say goodbye with a satisfied smile on your face.   Flutter FETTI has lots of summer-ending ideas.  Here are just a few:

Camp Farewell Party

For so many children across the country, camp is home for the summer.  It’s the happy place they spend all their free time learning archery, paddling canoes, tackling obstacle courses, and hanging out with other kids they only see during these couple months.  So when it’s time to say goodbye, you want it to be a celebratory occasion, not a sad one.  Throw a farewell party full of campfire food (like hotdogs and s’mores), interactive games and cabin skits, and a nostalgic slideshow with highlights from the summer.  At the end of the event, as everyone prepares to give their final goodbyes, shoot off loads of tissue confetti from our 6” Continuous Flow Confetti Gerb Launcher.  Just imagine the colorful scene that unfolds before the campers’ and counselors’ eyes – it’s a perfect way to part ways!  Plus all our tissue confetti is biodegradable and fire retardant so you don’t have to fret about the campfires or campgrounds.

Sports Team Celebration

Summer is also a big time for children to sign up for competitive sports.  They can join baseball and lacrosse travel teams, attend tennis and swimming camps, or partake in other sports.  While it might be purely entertainment for the younger ones, older children are often engaged in intense competitions.  When the summer ends, it’s important to recognize the accomplishments of every team member.  Host a sports team celebration at the local pool, picnic area, or ball field where you can hand out trophies, certificates, and team photos.  If the team or an individual won a big event or tournament, you really want to highlight the achievement.  Light up the sky with 18” inch speed load tubes of multi-colored confetti from our Master Blaster Confetti Launcher.  It’s handheld and portable making it usable in any location and our confetti is biodegradable so it won’t ruin the outdoor scenery.

Neighborhood Pool Party or Barbecue

For a significant number of children, summer means hanging out with the neighborhood kids, heading to grandma’s beach house for the weekend, and spending time at the local or backyard pool.  It’s less of an organized schedule and more about scattered moments of fun.  So when school looms around the corner, the summer often slips away and it’s over before you know it.  Rather than ending with a lull, get together with neighbors and friends (and all their kids) for an end of the summer pool party or barbecue.  Break out the water guns, fly down a “slip and slide”, do a water balloon toss contest, and shower the winners in confetti from 14” Flutter FETTI Confetti Sticks.  There are so many exciting things you can do in your backyard, just make sure you doing something to end the summer on a high note!

Traditional Back To School Party

Although it’s not the most exciting party in the world, traditional back to school parties are quite popular.  After a long summer of playing outside, it’s a great way to get kids to put their thinking caps on again.  You can host the party at your house and invite over all their school friends.  Put little packs of pencils, pens, notepads, and other school supplies in their lunch boxes.  If there’s a birthday around the same time, combine the parties.  Play school games like Red Rover or make paper airplanes and fly them in a competition.  The traditional back to school party is a great way to reconnect with school friends while simultaneously preparing for the year ahead.
