Looking for picture ideas for the first day of school, preschool or kindergarten? Get our printable DIY first day of school sign for your kid’s big day!


It amazes me every year how quickly August turns into fall. And before you know it, you’re picking out first day outfits and thinking where the time has gone. And I don’t mean just the summer.

It feels like only yesterday your little precious baby took their very first steps. And now you’re planning for the first day of school / kindergarten / preschool. Whatever it is, it’s too soon, right?

But still although a part of you feels sad to see your baby growing up so fast, you know it’s a day to celebrate. And a day to remember!

Printable DIY First Day of School Sign

We made this printable DIY first day of school sign to use as a photo prop for your kiddo’s big day. 

It’s designed so that you can fill out your little one’s name and the grade they’re starting (1st, 2nd grade, preschool or kindergarten). 

We’ve also added a little extra box to write in what your child wants to be when they grow up. Imagine how much fun it will be looking at those pictures and seeing what they wished for in a few years. (Or when they grow up and you actually see what they do in life.)

This is a great easy picture idea for your family’s big day.
