The first day of school is an exciting time for kids and parents. Which is why it’s so much fun to mark the day with a cute photo op. Make your back to school photos even more fun with first day of school printables.
A quick printable is definitely the simplest way to spruce up your back to school photos. So we pulled together this list of 11 fun and colorful first day of school Printables to make your life even easier.
You’ve made sure that the backpacks are still in good condition, the school supply list is checked off. Lunches are made, with a sweet note inside, and then it’s time to go.
- What will the new school year hold?
- Will your kids be in the same classes as their friends?
- Do you even want them to be in the same classes as their friends?
- Will the schoolwork be too light, too heavy, or just right?
The first day of school is a time of new beginnings. And with that comes plenty of excitement.
One of the best ways to capture that excitement is with back to school photos. It’s a tradition that my parents started when I was a little that I’ve continued with my own kids.
But when you look back on those pictures, it can be easy to forget which year you’re looking at. Which is why I love the idea of first day of school printables for kids to hold up as they head off to the new year.
The Best First Day of School Printables
Before you get started with your printables, you’ll want to make sure you have everything that you need to keep your morning running as smoothly as possible. Here’s a quick checklist for you:
- quality bright white card stock
- color printer (warning: chalkboard signs are adorable, but be sure to have plenty of ink on hand)
- Sharp scissors or a straight edge paper cutter
Note: I previously shared a number of free first day of school printables in this post, but unfortunately found that they weren’t getting updated regularly, so the list has been updated with a mix of low priced and free printables to give you as many options as possible.
