Alright, the countdown is on everybody, and part of the fun of the first day of school is taking those first day pictures. I’ve rounded up some of the best free printables you can use to make those pictures even more special. I’ve also found a bunch of free lunchbox notes printables, perfect for easing that separation anxiety and letting your little one know you are thinking of them while they are back at school.
First up, this set of Back to School set of printable signs for photos is pretty amazing. You’ll have to join the How Does She mailing list (for free) but trust me it is so worth it. You’ll get a complete set of the Back to School printables, one for each grade, plus a special Back to School printables set as well including little notes, lunchbox jokes and more. Also, once you sign up you’ll have access to ALL of her free printables including adorable Tooth Fairy invoices, tons of holiday and school stuff and much more. To sign up, click here.
This adorable scrapbook printable is a great (and free!) way to keep some of those first day memories. If your child is old enough have them write out their name or do a little drawing to commemorate the first day, and each year they can fill out more and more of it on their own!
Head over to I Heart Naptime for these great Back to School photo posters. She’s got a complete set from Pre-K to 12th grade, simply print one out, tape it to card stock and tape it to a pencil for a super cute way to remember that first day.
These beautifully designed free printables from Supermom (who else?) are updated with the year on them too!
Lunchbox notes are a great, easy way to be able to say hi during lunch when they are away. Sometimes a nice little note is all a child needs to get through the rest of the day if they are a little homesick. Print out this free set from Chickabug and you’ll have a bunch of sweet ones to choose from!
You can personalize these free printables with the school year and age, and all you have to do is become a fan of One Sweet Party on facebook!
These free printables from I Should Be Mopping The Floor are great because they have a space where your child can write their own name, so it’s personalized AND you can see each year how much their handwriting skills and personality develop. I think these might be the ones I choose for Finn’s first day…
Have a Back to School party with your child and some of their new school friends to help kick off the year! Download these great party supplies from Catch My Party, the chalkboard theme is just too cute.
OMG I LOVE these little sandwich wrap notes from Little Lovely! They have a First Day of School note, a bon appetit note, good luck and more! You just print it out on regular paper, cut it out, fold, wrap around and tape in the back. SO CUTE.
Alphamom is tied in the cute category for lunchbox notes. These tags would put a smile on anyone’s face at lunchtime. She also has some customizable lunchbox notes here too!
Follow me on Pinterest right here, and good luck to all of you and all of your back to schoolers out there! I hope everyone has a great first day and a happy and healthy school year! xoxo
