We all scream for ice cream!

The End of The School Year went out with a scream for some cream!!!   It was fun turning our garage into an ice cream shop.  It reminded me of the old days working at Baskin Robbins!  I loved scooping 31 flavors and I loved planning this party for my neighborhood.  I did a similar party when I taught special education, so I used some of the supplies from that and added a few. 
The stage was set and a garage was turned into a Sundae parlor!

I love using a plastic table cloth as a back drop.  Also great for hiding bikes and junk that are typical of a garage.

The centerpiece created with marshmallow tubes found at the Dollar Store!  I thought it was cute...

Of course there were toppings galore!

A craft to keep the kids busy...  Decorate a Soda Jerk hat and then get a ticket for a chance to win a fun summer bucket of goodies (summer stuff from the dollar store and sily bracelets).   The kids of all ages loved this.  Some wanted to make more than one hat. 

Here come the kids, grab the silly string and shoot them as they get off the bus and then let them shoot each other!  Then have some ice cream!

That looks great! I wish I lived in a big neighborhood. I did the same thing but on a much smaller scale. My kids live for the silly string. They only get it on the last day of school. That is an activity in itself. Cleaning up and then rolling it into a rubber ball. I love the fact that school is over!!!!

How fun!!!
No party here, on their last day my kiddos get a lunch date at a local diner with their daddy.
