First 30 Minutes
Start with a fun activity that kids can join in with when they arrive. For example, they could decorate their own plate or place-card holder. If it's a fancy-dress party, have a room where children can change and add the finishing touches - ask a few parents to be on hand to help.

Some further ideas on kindergarten graduation party planning.
Safety is a key part of graduation party planning. Be sure your venue is safe for the kids. If you are going to be outdoors at say the park, remember to check the area around your party. Be sure the kids can be seen at all times. Make sure you have enough helpers who are looking out for the kids. You should plan how you are doing your safety checks, what advice you need and also how you uncover any legal issues.
A good graduation party planning tip is have more than enough helpers who know what they are required to do. Photographs, coat check, name tags, music, games, prizes, favors, food, drinks, comforting an upset child and clearing away all need dedicated helpers.
A good kindergarten graduation party planning tip, try not to play games where kids are out. Also make sure to have a quiet area where kids can sit down and color in, away from the activity. I have lots of quiet and noisy activities on my graduation games page.
If you have things like a BBQ then you need to plan how the area will be kept safe as well as how you will serve the food.
Have a plan to deal with any accidents. Who will be responsible, how you contact the parents and how you will deal with the event.
Plan how you will improve the spending power of your dollars through sales, negotiations and online sites.
I hope the kindergarten graduation party planning takes the strain away from your party. Kindergarten graduation party planning can be essential!
