 I will be throwing my son and his friends a preschool graduation party in June. I am in need of some side dish ideas. Some of the mom's are bringing food which is super helpful but I am lost with what we should make  lol.

So please share your best side dish ideas!!!

 That is a great idea! Thank you.

Have you thought of letting them make their own Pita Pizzas? You don't have to worry about picky eaters because you have a large variety of toppings (and be creative - you don't have to stick to the traditional, make sure you have broccoli and cauliflower, pineapple and zucchini...and have dips too!) and you can have cheese and tomato sauce for the one kid who won't eat ANYTHING without having to suffer the "blands" yourself LOL

Thanks - the best part is that they are usually busy and happy for a good chunk of time LOL

What about some veggies and dip? My DD's class loves them. They pick those over sweets sometimes.

What about sugar cookies that they can decorate themselves with frosting and various sprinkles or cupcakes they can decorate?

 Great idea. I am having my daughter a cupcake birthday party this year and allowing the kids to decorate their own cupcakes =)

You could even use a cookie cutter in the shape of a graduation cap.
