The last day of school is quickly approaching, which got me thinking about the after-school party. After school on the last day, our neighborhood kids often get together to play in the sprinkler and slip ‘n slide, celebrating the start of summer. I designed this Ice Cream Shoppe Party to kick off summer break. Since the last week of school is usually filled with special activities, school talent shows, and awards ceremonies, I wanted this Ice Cream Shoppe Party to require minimal work. Planning for this party took only a couple of days.
