The most wonderful time of the year – last day of school

After Christmas and birthdays, the last day of school might be the most exciting day for a kid. It’s pretty good day for teachers too and for parents… well maybe it’s not their favorite day.

Whether you are a kid, a teacher or a parent, here are some project ideas that use photos that will make that last day a fun one.

For kids:

See your friends off on summer vacation with a sweet sendoff. You can add text to your photo with the Kodak Picture Kiosk before stapling it to the bag of candy treats.

Or you could add a powdered drink mix and a crazy straw to a photo for a summer treat. Both of these are quick and easy goodies to make for classmates.

You can’t forget about your teacher. Make a thank you gift that they will really enjoy. Add some garden tools and a photo with a message to a flower pot that your teacher can use over the summer.

Kids might need help with this project but what teacher wouldn’t love this colorful wreath personalized with their photo to hand in their classroom?

For teachers:

Let your students know how much you enjoyed having them in class with a sand pail and a photo to remember you by.

Take a picture of each student holding a sign stating what they want to be when they grow up. When combined into a collage, it makes an adorable print for parents to look back on.

For parents:

Photo greeting cards are the perfect format for creating Keep in Touch cards. You can add text including contact information and a photo (so kids can tell Sally from Sarah), that will help friends stay in touch and have play dates over the summer.

After a year of classes you might have a big pile of artwork, tests and report cards. Scan them in at a Kodak Picture Kiosk and make it into a photo book to cut down on clutter around the house.

Don’t forget to take a picture of your little student on that last day of school to pair with a photo from the first day of school. You will love seeing how they grew over a year. If you just took a quick picture with your phone, you can print these photos with the My Kodak Moments app.

Since there are long days stretching before you until school starts again, a photo to-do list will help the kids stay on task.
