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.

I still remember when my mom left notes in my lunchbox. Check out these printable school lunch notes from The Suburban Mom.
First Day of School Ideas
Add some text to your photo to help remember all of those important details.
Plan to take a photo on the last day of school in the same outfit as the first day of school like I did with K for Pre-K.
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.

What a great roundup of printables! I love these and definitely need to pick one for my daughter’s first day of preschool!
Just don’t do what I did. I printed my printable, then I FORGOT to use it this morning!!!! Doh!!!!
Somehow I am missing something. I am trying to print out a sign and I cannot figure out how to do it!
This is awesome. What a great way to track the memories and be able to share them w/your little ones when they become big ones. 🙂
Thanks Jen! I love all these cute ideas!
Sharon @ Life After Empty Nest says
Your ideas are AMAZING Jen! I shared some of them on my blog today since school starts tomorrow in our city. Your daughter is adorable!
Thanks for sharing!
Hi. I used your first day of school printables and would love to know what font you used. I want to make something similar for another event with that font. Thanks so much. 🙂
How do I print them out?
Choose the sign you want to print, and then click on the link below the image to be directed to the blog that designed the sign. There you will be able to print the free signs.
I love these! What app can I use to type her likes on the pic?
I use PicMonkey.com. It is a free online app. Just upload the picture, add text and save to your computer. Have fun with it, PicMonkey is a great tool!
I’m finding pic monkey fairly easy but VERY time consuming. Can you tell me what you used to create that adorable pic? I can’t figured out which font or how to make the heart.
Hi Kristin – It gets quicker as you use it a lot. 🙂 The heart is just a text symbol. Copy and paste this ♥ as text and then resize as needed 🙂 Have fun!
Hi Jen! This is a fantastic list of photo ideas and I love the printables. I can’t wait to use them in a couple of weeks:)
