Here’s a free printable first day of school sign PDF that you can personalize with your child’s name, year and grade in a super cute apple. Print it on any color paper!
Just download my free printable first day of school sign, open it up in Adobe Reader, type into the fields to personalize it yourself, print it out on either white cardstock paper or my favorite colored cardstock paper…
…and then spend 15 minutes trying convince your three-year-old to smile for the camera to finally get “the one.”
You know it’s back-to-school time when Facebook feeds are jammed with ‘first day of school’ photos. This new social media staple is almost like mini-Christmas cards in September and June. It’s fun to see my friend’s kids as they grow. And it’s really fun to compare the first day of school to the last — here’s Elise’s from Pre-K last year.
My free printable First Day of School sign features a super cute apple. There are two pages: the first page is for shorter names, and the second page is for longer names. Just print the page that you prefer. We printed our First Day of School signs on colored paper and I plan to use a different color each year and then make a book …even when the kids have on their “please mom, just finish taking pictures” smiles.
And you can use the same color for my free printable Last Day of School sign.
