Ah, the first day of school.
Maybe it's preschool and you cannot believe your toddler will be away a few days a week. Or, it's the emotion-packed first day of kindergarten that's tugging on your heart strings. Perhaps your kid is soaring through elementary school and you feel like they're practically already in high school. 😭
Whatever stage your little one is in, you'll probably want to capture the milestone with a quick pic. Enter: first day of school signs. You know the ones where your child fills out what they want to be when they grow up, how old they are, and their teacher for the year. Not only is this a sweet sentiment to look back on for when they're older, but it's a great way to see how much your child has grown throughout the school year.
Here are our favorite (and sweetest) signage ideas for your kids:
