How to Make Your School’s Field Day The Best Yet

It’s time for some fun in the sun!

There’s nothing better than watching students enjoy the perfect Field Day. From tug of war to the sack race to everything in between, a laughter-filled day of games can help students connect and squeeze in some extra fun as the school year comes to a close.

Ready to put together a field day that students will remember? Here are a few of our best tips:

Have a game plan

A great plan will help you pull off a Field Day that everyone will enjoy. Plan your games ahead of time, gather supplies, and make sure you have enough parent and teacher volunteers available to set up, monitor, and wrap up the day. And don’t forget to offer students an opportunity to pre-order a T-shirt to commemorate the “Best Day Ever”!  Check out this blog post for some tips on how to make your Field Day Tees a huge success.  By planning ahead, you and your students will be ready for an exciting day.


Mix it up

Field Day is a classic school tradition, but it certainly doesn’t have to stay the same from year to year! Put a spin on your schedule and throw in a few new games with the tried-and-true favorites. You could even surprise students with a themed field day. A fun t-shirt in a customized design could help set the stage for a day of themed fun before they even step outside. You can even assign each grade or team a different t-shirt color to encourage a little friendly competition!


Spread the word

The weeks leading up to Field Day should be some of the most exciting days of the school year for students. The anticipation in the halls will have students counting down the days until they hit the field. Build anticipation with a special announcement to unveil your customized Field Day t-shirts and a pre-order sale.


Make it memorable

Field Day is a chance for students to bond with their friends, enjoy a break from the classroom, and create memories that will last them a lifetime. Though a little playful competition is fun, students remember the giggles with friends and goofy fun the most. Offering a keepsake like a brightly-colored Field Day t-shirt will help keep the memories in mind long after the dismissal bell rings!


Make it fun!

After a busy year of learning, Field Day gives students a chance to burn off some steam and end the school year with a day of excitement. Soak in the reactions from the students, and thank the team of school administrators, teachers, PTA members, and parents who made the day possible. Every burst of laughter and display of teamwork is a sign of a Field Day well-spent!
