Looking for a fun, unique year-end middle school event? We’ve got a great idea for you! Treat your middle school students to an outside school picnic during the school day! A picnic is an easy way to promote school camaraderie and give your middle school students a welcome respite from their end-of-the-year reviews and tests.
Bring Your Own
Keep it simple. Have your middle school students bring their own lunch to eat outside.
For you this means no worries about firing up the grill or hiring a caterer, as well as minimal clean-up once your school picnic is over! The best part of “bring your own?” You will get to spend more time interacting with your students!
Providing refreshments for your middle school picnickers is super easy.
Use our custom or stock Stadium Cups for cold beverages, like lemonade, water, or juice. Any leftover cups can be used in your school store or concession stands for fundraising.
Quick and Easy Décor
Keep your middle school picnic decorations simple, easy and low-cost.
• Use Fashion Balloons in your school colors.
• String Hanging Lanterns around your picnic space for a festive look.
• Hand out Beads and Cheek Cheers for students to wear during your picnic celebration.
Games and Activities
Plan on holding several games and activities at your middle school picnic. Some ideas to try are…
• Three-legged race
• Sack race
If you set up school picnic games and activities, hand out small rewards to students to participating students.
• Chocolate stars
Don’t forget rewards, prizes and decorations for other year-end middle school events, like 8th Grade Prom, dances, carnivals, and graduation!
