My oldest is getting ready to start Pre-K at the public school this year (he calls it his big boy school)! I can’t believe he’s old enough for this. As excited as I am, I am equally as nervous and I secretly wish he could stay my baby forever.
I’m an obvious first-timer at this school mom thing. I’m going overboard on the prep…bought school supplies a month ago, backpack is ready, parent portal account created, met the teacher, etc. I’m sure, however, I’ll find that I forgot about a big detail on the first day when it’s too late. Part of my prep was creating a back to school fill-in-the-blank sign so I can document the first day of school this year and for years to come. It’s a thing…I’ve seen all you other moms doing it and I want it on it too!
I only have very basic photo shop skills but I decided to try my hand at creating a simple sign that will work for all my kids and all the grades. I printed it out and bought a cute frame for it. All I needed was a dry erase marker and, voila, I had a re-usable fill-in-the-blank sign! Easiest DIY project ever!
If you’re in need of a simple photo prop for the first day of school then you can download this free printable. You will also need a picture frame with glass and a dry erase marker.
Good luck to all our kiddos on the first day of school! And good luck to all the mommas out there as you, sadly or excitedly (I’m not judging), send your kids back to school.
