5 Ways to Celebrate Your Grad's Big Day
It’s finally here. After all those long nights studying, early morning alarm clocks, and a lifetime of memories made with friends they’ll never forget — your child’s graduation day is finally here!
Whether you’re lucky enough to celebrate together in-person, or looking for creative ways to make the most of a virtual graduation, these simple ideas are a great way to commemorate their big achievement.
Create a time capsule
Try to capture the moment, feelings, and memories made on graduation day and turn it into something your whole family can look back on years later. It could be something you write down, some photos, or you can take it further and make a video of the day, immortalizing the most meaningful moments.
Write a letter to your family/friends
Behind every student’s diploma is a network of loving people who supported them along the way, and graduation day is the perfect time to express that gratitude.
Recreate your favorite school lunch
Get a little nostalgic with a graduation menu by incorporating recipes or items your family grew up loving, or use them as inspiration to create a gourmet twist on a cafeteria classic.
Pay it forward
If you’re in a position to donate a little bit of your time, why not support an organization that helps other kids go to and succeed at school? The act of paying it forward so another child can achieve the same goal your grad just reached is a powerful gesture.
Smile, laugh, and be proud
It should go without saying, but don’t forget to have a little fun! We know graduation can be a hectic day with a packed schedule full of responsibilities, but try your best to live in the moment, take it all in, and feel truly proud of what your graduate (and your family) has accomplished.
