First Day of School Printables

First Day of School Printables

Update: This post is a few year’s old – my youngest just finished Kinder! But it’s still one of my most popular posts, and we use these first day of school printables every year – enjoy!

Eeeeek! My oldest is starting kindergarten this year. Kind of a big deal around here!

So OF COURSE I will be making him take excessive amounts of pictures on his first day of school, and OF COURSE I wanted to make him a cute little sign that he could hold on the first day of school every.single.year until he graduates high school (I’m sure he’ll be a great sport about it, right?!). And then, I have a three-year-old starting pre-k in the fall, and I didn’t want her to be left out, soo…I made her one, too.

And these First Day of School printables are yours to print out and use, too! 🙂

Free first day of school printablesYou could (in theory) print one out and use it for 12 years. Just frame it and fill in the grade and teacher info with a dry-erase marker over the glass. Of course, I couldn’t find a dry-erase marker when I needed one, so I wrote directly on the page…and that would be fine too! You don’t need a frame. Print out several and just fill in the info and have your kid hold it – no need to be fancy!

I always have good intentions for first day of school festivities, and then when it actually arrives I end up running around like a crazy lady, trying to find missing shoes, the new backpacks that had became toy collectors and seriously, where did the hair brush go?!! It’s become tradition to be late on the first day over here :p

7:30?!!! That’s insane! I thought 8:30 was bad sheesh! We have to be out the door by 8:10 and my kids are falling out of bed at 7:55 :p

Super-adorable, Carrie! Thanks for sharing! ๐Ÿ™‚

Love these printables.
Thanks for sharing Carrie.

This is such an adorable idea – and a great tradition!

So cute! Can’t wait to hear how their year goes!

Wait two in school? How awesome…I mean sad! So bitter sweet huh? I LOVE these printables…pinning and stumbling now!

These are so adorable! I LOVE the ‘chalkboard’ like one (pinning). Though I don’t want my baby girl to grow up too fast I do look forward to taking the first day of school photos ๐Ÿ™‚

Sooooo loving these printables! I’ve been using a chalkboard for the past 2 years – the same one, but this idea is so cute and easy!!!

So, so cute ~ your children and the printables!! Love the designs you made! I would love if you would share this at my new link party, Celebrate It! It all about celebrating everyday life.
Hope to see you there!

How fun! Thanks for linking up to Sweet and Savoury Sunday, stop by and link up again. Have a great day!!

Hi just wondering if you have an end of the year printable?

Do you have Last Day of School signs? These 1st day are great, would love to do a last day pic as well.


Stopping by from Small Victories Sunday. These are super cute. I will be sharing and using these printables. Thanks. ๐Ÿ™‚

Great idea! So cool for memories.

Found you through the linkup, and these are adorable! My daughter is starting school for the first time this Fall, this will be such a fun way to remember it.
