Starting school can often bring feelings of confusion, sadness, anxiety to a lot of parents (okay… moms!).  Wondering all the typical questions: Are they ready?  Will they be okay?  Will they make friends?  Well, today we bring you a little bright spot to focus on that we know moms love even more than worrying: MAKING MEMORIES!  As we pick out the perfect outfit and style their perfect hair, we want to snap that perfect photo to forever remember this day… the first day of school.  Here is another accessory that you’ll need to have ready to accent that photo (and identify it later!).

  1. Becky,
    Darling project to remember a precious time in a childs life. Your project is creative, it is nice that you provide us with the cut file to cherish our children’s memories.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Have a sweet day,
    Karen Marie

    • Thanks Karen! My nephew starts Kindergarten this year so we’re really hoping he’ll pose for a picture. We may have to resort to bribery but it’ll be worth it. lol Thanks for stopping by.

    • Thanks Kelly! My nephew starts Kindergarten this year. I hope I can get him to pose for a picture. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. What a lovely project to remember that first day of school! The dork in me would probably use them every year no matter how old the kids got. But then again, they’d probably resist!

    • Thanks Trisha! My boys are 8 & 9 and I’m not so sure they’re going to go along with it this year. Thanks for stopping by.

    • Thanks Angela! I hope you do a post on it, I’d love to see what you come up with. Thanks for stopping by.

  3. I think what makes kids anxious is the homework and the teachers (well, for my kid anyway!), but making the craft together would be good way to ease their fears :-)

    • Thanks Lauren! I could probably ask the boys everyday what they want to be and it would be different each time. lol Thanks for taking the time to stop by.

  4. This is so cute! I wish I were better at chronicling all my kids’ first days. I’m so hit-or-miss. But you’ve just reminded me to get my camera out for their first day tomorrow, so thank you!

    • Thanks Meredith! This is my first at actually using a photo prop and the kids are loving it. Thanks for stopping by.

    • It’s not too late to start Kirsten! There are printables all over pinterest for every grade level. If you can’t find something you like shoot me an email and I’ll personalize this one for you. Thanks stopping by.

  5. Gosh it has been so long since I had first days of school.

    Thanks for stopping by to share your post, I just pinned it to our Weekends Party Board also.
    Hope to see you next week.
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend

  6. Adorable first day of school signs! I love how you personalized Morgan’s name and school year on yours! We start Pre-K tomorrow! We will have to print a sign! Our daughter will love it! I wonder what she will say she wants to be! Thanks for sharing!

  7. Such a cute printable. I wish I took pictures of my kids with this type of first day of school printable. Thanks for sharing on Merry Monday.

  14. Thank you so much! I am new to the cameo so I’m still learning, and I can’t seem to figure out how to edit the studio file to put in my child’s information? I’ve tried Ungroup and that doesn’t work…. Please advise? Thanks :)
