When we say graduation season is upon us, that means the slightly more under-the-radar graduations as well. While you might not immediately think of kindergarten when you're thinking of graduation season, it's an accomplishment that's worth celebrating. It's also an opportunity to show your kid how to celebrate the accomplishments of others as well. One way to do that is to help your kindergartener make homemade gifts for their classmates to say "good job"! These projects are easy and adorable and should give you lots of inspiration.
Kindergarteners have newly mastered skills, like using scissors and applying glue without eating it, so you may as well take advantage of it by having them make their classmates paper bracelets, beaded butterflies or paper flower vases. And the sight of your kid giving each of his classmates a congratulatory gift on the day they "cross the stage" will definitely add to the emotion-meter.
While your kindergartner might not be able to do these crafts on their own from start to finish, that's OK. You can revel in needing to help them for a little while longer, even if they are growing up before your eyes. First stop, kindergarten certificate; next stop, art school diploma!
