Any Grade Graduation


Graduating from any grade is an exciting event for kids, so it’s only fitting to cap off the school year (and kick off summer vacation) with a celebration. Just prepare a platter of Diploma Treats and make a cap for each of the graduating guests. Here’s how.
Wrap a 5- by 28-inch strip of poster board around your child’s head, overlapping the ends to achieve a comfortable fit. Remove the strip and staple the overlap. Next, center the ring on a 10-inch black poster board square and trace around it. Remove the ring, make a series of 2-inch cuts along the top edge, and fold the tabs toward the center. Spread glue inside the circle tracing, then turn the ring tab-side down and press it firmly to the glued section.

For a tassel, arrange 20 5-inch pieces of colored string in a bunch and tie them together at one end with a longer string. Now make a small hole in the top of the hat and thread through the loose end of the longer string. Knot the string end inside the hat and tape it in place to keep it from slipping back through.

This sandwich idea is sure to make the grade with young graduates and their party guests.

Whip together 8 ounces of softened cream cheese and 1/4 cup of seedless strawberry or raspberry jam. Lightly spread the mixture on flour tortilla or Lavash bread, then roll up each sandwich diploma style and tie on a ribbon made of Fruit by the Foot. Makes 4 to 6 sandwiches.
