What is Senior Night?
For you first time Senior Parents, Aunts, Uncles, or Grandparents! Senior night (or Senior Day) is the last regular season home game. At some point during the game, either before the game starts, halftime, or at the end, a ceremony is put together to honor the outgoing team seniors. It’s their official farewell in front of their coaches, teammates, family, and friends. It’s a great time to show how much they are appreciated as a member of the team, a leader to the younger teammates, and loved by their fans. This is why you might be here, looking for some fun and creative senior night ideas!

Big Foam cutouts are such a fun idea! And there are multiple ways to use them!
- Get a Big Head Cutout of their face! You can use it to cheer them on during their last game, hand it to them during the Senior Night ceremony, and use it as party decorations for any party you throw for them at home. Every time they see that head they will remember all of those amazing memories associated with it!
- Get a Huge Head Cutout of their High School or Future College mascot or logo. You can get one of each and show that they are moving from one to the next. They can even take it with them to decorate their dorm room walls their first year at college!
- Personalized Key chains are another fun idea. You can make one for their High school or College whatever will be more memorable for them. Or get a key chain with their own face on it! It’ll be easier for them to find their car keys without mom around and that way their friends will always know who the keys belong to!
