A cheap and cheerful idea would be to organise a fun day for kids and their families. Bring them all to the local park or the school yard for a celebratory picnic. However, with the Irish weather being so unreliable make sure to bring a brolly. There's still plenty of fun and games to be had in the park even if it is wet and dull. For information on local free kid friendly activities see our page on Free Outings and Rainy Day Fun.

If the school isn't doing anything and it’s only a couple of you or there’s a big gang, there are plenty of fun things to do to celebrate the last day of school at home. Have a garden and a hose? Then you have the perfect arena for a water fight. Keep the house from getting destroyed by taking the madness outside and see our guide for back garden fun with the childers.
