Preschool Graduation Decorations

I've learned that when it comes to decorations for preschool graduation, less is more.  This is a problem for me because I LOVE to decorate, but ultimately, too many decorations cause more stress that necessary because they take time to put up, time that I just don't have on graduation day. I keep my decorations minimal by reminding myself that what parents really want is to see their children.  This helps me focus and prioritize when it is time to decorate.  I try to make sure that the ceremony space, where the children will receive their diplomas looks nice, but not busy. Parents want photos of their children, not photos where it is hard to find their children amid all of the decorations.

The other thing that really helps me is to make sure everything follows the same color scheme - all of my awards, gifts for students, keepsakes, tablecloths, and diplomas use the same color scheme because then all of the elements of the celebration look like they go together. This creates a unified look without a lot of decor.

Here are a couple of photos from last year's ceremony (notice that even the graduation hats the children decorated use the colors from the theme, it all looks like it goes together).

Here are some other easy Pinterest ideas that I absolutely love;

All of these ideas are easy to do and will fit in your budget so that you can create a beautiful graduation for your preschoolers and their families!
