Free Printable First Day of School Signs

I know what you’re thinking – back to school already? Even though it is only July, school starts in August for some states. The start of the school year is filled with so many special moments and many of us document it with pictures and videos. Kids dressed in their new clothes and shoes – can’t forget the fresh haircuts! I do it to my kids all.the.time! Luckily, they are photogenic and don’t mind the billions of pictures I take. This school year is a big one – my littlest one is heading to Kindergarten. Kindergarten, guys! I can’t handle my baby girl going off to big girl school. I want to make sure to capture the first day of school in a special way so I created these fun, colorful back to school printable signs.

I love seeing everyone’s First Day of School pictures on social media so I wanted to offer you a FREE printable. You’ll find Preschool – 8th grade. The signs print perfectly on your printer paper (8.5 x 11″). I personally use this paper since it’s a little thicker and can withstand my kid’s rough hands. Just send it to print and have your kids pose!

I made the sign extra colorful and bright perfect for all those adorable poses. Our kids grow way too fast! I hope these will help you fill a lot of albums. My mother just recently gave me my School Age memory book. I am so thankful that she created a book with all my class pictures, yearly school photos, and little tidbits about me. I try to print as many pictures as I can of my kids so they have something to look back when they are older. Everything seems to be online but there is nothing like flipping through a photo album! My mom has tons of albums from her younger years and then of me and my sister. It is nice to flip through them and reminisce about days past.

    These first day of school signs are a great idea. I want to take a photo from the first day every year. I will have to print these off before school starts this year.

    I wish I would have done this when my kids were younger. I think it’s a great way to document the start of a new school year.

    It would be so nice to have consistent patterns like this through the years. I have had to guess sometimes what ages my kids were because I didn’t date them or anything.

    I have done a sign with my son every year. I recently lost the chalk board we had. I will be using these this year, thanks!

    I’m not sure I’m ready for us to be thinking back to school stuff, yet. We still haven’t done a big camping trip yet!

    How can it already be time for school. We do something similar. We will get this printed out.
