You can end the year with a culmination project like this an end-of-the-year After School Yearbook for your students and families. Depending on the needs and resources of your program, this is a project you can make FOR your students and families ... or you can involve the students themselves in the creation of their own yearbook. Either way a yearbook will be very much appreciated by your students and parents as well as individuals or organizations which sponsor your after school program.

For additional creative writing and drawing activities, see the activities in the Writing and the Drawing Starters sections of this web site.
