If you missed it, I did a whole post about various ways you can capture your Happy Buddy’s first day of school in a photo last Back to School season. You can see it HERE – it’s such a cute post. Seriously. Go check it out.
One of the photo ops featured was to have your back to schooler hold up a sign announcing the grade he or she is entering.
The idea is so popular that many great blogs have created a series of signs for you to print (for free!) and use year after year.
Here are 6 of my favorites…
First Day of School Printables at How Does She?.
Colorful Back to School Printables at i heart nap time.
The Wheels on the Bus Grade Printables by Lauren McKinsey Designs.
First Day Printables at All for the Boys.
Simple. Clean. Your boys will appreciate the lack of polkadots.
Free Printable Back to School Collection (not just first day signs – this incredible set has tags, banners,treat toppers, etc. Did I mention it is FREE?!) from Amanda’s Parties to Go.
I love that a ruler was used as a handle for the sign!!!
And, finally, Tip Junkie put a clever spin on the hold-a-sign-idea by making a collection of First Day Photo Props – like the adorable speech bubble you see above.
I don’t know about you, but my Happy Buddy has a strange passion for crumpling things up in a ball right now, so we skipped the sign this year (I had to say goodbye to an entire sticker set I loved – *sigh*).
Hopefully you will have better luck!
Happy 1st Day of School Photo Sign-ing!
