We are officially coming up on those crazy last days of school, and things are getting a little chaotic.. to say the least! These end of the school year craft ideas are the perfect way to keep your students engaged and learning.
These end of the school year craft ideas are a great way to incorporate fine motor practice, writing, and even science!
The best part about these end of the year crafts is that they can be differentiated for many different grades – from kindergarten to second grade to fifth grade.
Laptop Memory Book Craft
This laptop memory book craft isn’t a memory book in the traditional sense, but it’s probably more relatable for kids today!
Your students will LOVE making their own personal laptops that are filled with their favorite school year memories. This may be my very favorite of all the end of the year craft ideas!
Is there a better end of the year activity to memorialize a one-of-a-kind year of virtual and/or distance learning? I don’t think so!
You can also personalize these laptop memory books with students grade and the year on the back. That way it can open and close like a laptop.
