Remember your last day of school? It was a day of goodbyes, cleaning out desks and… the exciting thoughts of starting summer holidays for two wonderful months. In every child’s mind, a spinning wheel is going, thinking of the freedoms with endless days of doing nothing or going out on little adventures. It is a special day being the ‘last day of school’. A day to celebrate.
With the last day of school, comes a handful of ideas to kick off the summer holidays. Each year, the kids come home and I have a ‘Ice Cream Sundae Party’ planned for the afternoon with some of their friends and ours. We hang out in the backyard and talk about our annual ‘Summer Bucket List’ as well.
An assortment of toppings of kid-style and adult-style are created in a buffet arrangement, with classic flavors of french vanilla, vanilla bean, strawberry and chocolate. The possibilities are endless with having an ice cream bar. It is a great way to start the summer with the kids and the ‘kids at heart’.
