    School Colors

    • Hang streamers and tie balloons around the party room using your child's or students' school colors. If the school does not have defined school colors, use primary-colored (yellow, red and blue) balloons and streamers.


    • Place school-related plots around the room. Fill bowls with real apples. Set up floor-hockey sticks, sports balls, mini-chalk boards, world globes, maps, educational posters, rulers, text books, bicycle wheels, instruments, sheet music, and any other items you can think of, in a decorative fashion. Make cut-outs out of card stock of school buses, computers, flag poles, school buildings, apples, crayons and other themed-objects and hang them from the ceiling. You can probably find templates online for these. You can even make edible props and use them as centerpieces, like a cake shaped as a school bus, jars filled with colorful candy and dried fruit or tiered cupcakes with letters and numbers on top.

    Graffiti Wall

    • Attach a piece of butcher paper to a blank wall. Give children markers and ask them to draw and write what they hope to accomplish in the coming school year. This graffiti wall will transform into a work of art as the party progresses.

    School Supply Wall

    • On another blank wall, hang a peg board. Fill small decorative buckets with pencils, erasers, markers, pens and other colorful school supplies. Hang the buckets on the peg board using hooks in a visually appealing fashion. For the party, the peg board will serve as a decoration; at the end of the party let each child take a bucket home as a party favor.
