2021 has not been the best year for young graduates. Unlike their older siblings, they most likely will not be enjoying a big graduation party. High school graduation is a pivotal moment in a young person’s life. You would never want your children to feel like they were jilted on such an important occasion. Even though this year may have served the class of 2021 several disappointments, it is still possible to plan a fun and safe drive-by celebration for your graduate.
How to Organize A Drive-by Graduation Celebration
If you are planning a drive-by graduation celebration, then you have to be organized. First of all, you have to get in contact with all of your child’s friends and also relatives. They are all not going to be able to attend the drive-by, so you do well to have two separate celebrations. One celebration can be on Zoom in the evening, and the drive-by celebration will only be for those individuals who are able to come during the morning of the graduation celebration.
A Drive-by Celebration
You can plan this as a surprise to your graduate, or you can let him or her know. A surprise is more fun. Arrange for all of the graduate’s family and friends who live by to do a drive-by at your home. They can work together and purchase graduation car decorations that have the name of the graduate. They have to all come at a scheduled time, and at that time you will bring the graduate outside. They will drive by with their cars, and as they are honking, waving, and showing their awesome car decorations and posters, they can give the graduate gifts. This will be something truly memorable to your child; he or she will feel special and loved on this grand occasion.
The Zoom Celebration
A Drive-by celebration does not have to be it. You can also arrange a fun celebration for your child over Zoom. During the Zoom celebration, you can arrange for a slideshow of your child to be shown. After the slideshow, you could have some games, prizes, and a gift-opening ceremony. You can have a special cake made for your graduate as well. The graduate can cut the cake in front of the attendees, and people can step up to the plate to say some encouraging words to the graduate. The celebration can last a few hours, and it will definitely be a memorable day for your graduate.
Your Graduate Deserve Some Love
It was not an easy thing to attend school during 2021. Whether your child had to do it online or go into school, it was definitely a challenging year. Since your child has gone through so much in order to graduate in 2021, he or she deserves to have a great celebration. Even though this year’s graduation will not be like graduations of the past, by doing a few extra things, you can still make your child’s graduation celebration special.
