Brody's Preschool Graduation Party & Free Printable


I can't believe that Brody's kindergarten year is coming close to its end and I still haven't had a chance to share his preschool graduation party from last year!  This party theme is near and dear to my heart because I absolutely loved Brody's preschool and was sad to know that he was leaving it, plus knowing that he would eventually be going to school 5 days a week!  I was very emotional, but I know that Brody is a big boy now and ready to blossom and learn more and more things!

Aside from the educational curriculum, Brody's preschool taught him so many wonderful things about Jesus.  So I created a graduation party theme "Shine!", inspired by the Bible verse Matthew 5:16 "Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven."  The main image for the party printables is a smiling and shining sun.  And the color scheme of blue and gold matched their cap and gown.

All of the parents pitched in and brought yummy snacks and drinks.  My friend Laura, (who taught me how to sew!) turned chocolate snack cakes into cute little diplomas!  I decorated plain vanilla and chocolate cupcakes from Walmart with customized cupcake toppers.  I also wrapped mini Hershey candies with customized labels.  There were other sweet treats like brownies and cookies, and salty snacks like chips and pretzels.

For favors, the kids got bags with a personalized tags saying, "You are so bright, go out and shine your light." and inside was a flashlight and some sweet treats.  Our little "Dolphins" (their class name/mascot for the year) had a lot of fun.  Here are some more pictures from their special party:












Since I love this theme so much, I wanted to share with my readers the 4x6 signs pictured above, but instead of it saying "Congrats Dolphins", it just says "Congrats Grad".  Get your free printable HERE.




The whole Graduation Party printable collection is now in my Etsy Shop!  You can purchase it HERE.


I know it's been almost a year ago, but I have to show a photo of our sweet Brody in his cap and gown.  We are so proud of him!

    1. Thank you, Catherine for your sweet comment! My son's preschool did such a great job teaching the little ones about Jesus, I wanted the theme to reflect my wishes for the children, which is how I came up with the theme, Shine Your Light. :-)
