Updated July, 2019 with 2019-2020 1st day of school signs
One fun, SIMPLE back to school tradition you will cherish for years is to take a photo of your kids holding a first day of school printable sign.
We all have favorites traditions as we send our kids back to school at the end of the summer. Some of us might hold creative parties or do fun crafts, while others keep it simple by packing a special note in their child’s lunchbox.
Me? I prefer simple as I think the back to school time of year is busy enough without adding more to my to-do list. But there’s one fun and easy thing we can all do: take a photo of your children holding up a printable first day of school sign!
Back to School Signs
I don’t know who first started this simple yet brilliant idea of having kids hold a sign saying “First Day of….(their grade)”, but I love it. I’ve been doing this with my four kids for the past several years now and it’s resulted in some of my favorite pictures. Plus I’m always amazed to see how much they’ve grown when I look back at those ‘first-day’ pictures.
I think my kids like it more than a regular photoshoot too because they get to hold something. Your kids too?
Plus it’s such an EASY tradition too. And I have one more mom secret tip that makes it even simpler that I’ll share as you keep reading.
