It’s that time of year again when mothers everywhere beg their students to, “Please smile for just one nice picture before your first day of school.” It is a right of passage, and we moms wouldn’t miss it. This year how about spicing up that obligatory photo with a cute printable poster or adding a list of your kids faves to the photo. I went looking for inspiration for K’s first day of Pre-K tomorrow, and these are my favorite ideas. I’ll share the end results soon.

First Day of School Ideas
Add some text to your photo to help remember all of those important details. I love that Rachel Myers took an identical picture on the last day of school too to show how much her kiddo changed.
Chalk it up with this idea from Blue Cricket Design.
Plan to take a photo on the last day of school in the same outfit as the first day of school like Rocket City Mom did. (I am so doing this!)
Another first day, last day of school idea from Call Me Crafty Ya’ll. This could also be done from one year to the next.
For my fellow crafters, I love this tutorial from Miranda Made for first day ribbons.
Happy First Day of School to all! Let me know what you do for that picture.
