Back to School is happening. It still seems so early for us in the PNW, but I’m already seeing first-day photo printables all over Pinterest. Keep reading for download and how-to instructions.
First Day of School Photo Printables
Every year I would have my son stand on the front porch for his annual first day of school photos. I didn’t think to make a first day of school photo printable until his junior year in high school and as you can see, it wasn’t on the porch. You can find the updated printable pennants for each school grade here.
These new printables allow you to add the year and more personal information for better memory keeping. The kids love to look back and see how much they’ve grown in size and personality in just a year! Mom’s like this too!
You can download the free copy with the fill in the blanks or you can order a custom formatted school sign. Keep reading for details.
After filling in all the blanks on the free printable, choose a place for their first day of school photo and simply have them hold the printable back to school sign up as you take a few photos. Make sure to get close enough so you can read everything.
Last Day of School Photo Printables
I wish I would have done this with my son! He’s 20 now and he’s not very cooperative at sending me a photo of his first day of classes or last while he’s away at college.
By taking one the first day and the last day of school, you end up with a great comparison of how they’ve grown and matured. All subtle changes throughout the year suddenly appear so big!
