Hi Friends! It’s so hard to believe but we are already nearing the end of July and it will soon be time to start thinking about all things back to school. I know, I know…so sad! I am trying to hold on to every second of this summer as my little Sawyer will be heading off to Kindergarten in the fall (Cue all the tears…from me, not him! He couldn’t be more excited!).
You guys know me, I celebrate all. the. things. (Like his recent preschool graduation party!) That’s just me! haha! So to soften the blow that my sweet baby is growing up right before my eyes, I’ve decided to celebrate this milestone by creating some fun first (and last) day of school signs to kick the year off right! Today I’m sharing two different ideas each with free printable PDF files for you all.
Also, I’ve teamed up with an amazing group of ladies to get you even more prepared for the start of school in a Back to School Series blog hop. I’ve linked to each of their fabulous ideas at the bottom of this post. Be sure to check them all out!
FIRST AND LAST DAY OF SCHOOL FREE PRINTABLE SIGNS
Personalizing your Sign
To edit your first and last day of school printable signs follow these simple steps:
- First, download the free printable signs (located in our free printable library—info at the bottom of this post).
- You will need to download the free font Antonio to edit some of the fields. You can download the font (for free) here.
- The printables are PDF files that contain editable fields (for the names). You will need Adobe Reader to personalize the sign. If you don’t have Adobe Reader you can download it for free here.
- Open the PDFs in Adobe Reader. Click where it currently says “Sawyer’s,” at the top of the sign, and type the name you would like to include.
- Then, click where it currently says “Kindergarten,” and type the grade level you would like to include. Continue personalizing your sign by also customizing the date on the pencil, graduation year on the apple, as well as the “When I grow up…” and “My teacher’s name…” sections.
- Lastly, when you have finished personalizing your sign, click save and print.
FIRST AND LAST DAY OF SCHOOL FLAGS
I think these first and last day of school flags are so fun! They are also so simple to assemble. And after you make it one time, you can store it away and use it for all the “firsts” and “lasts” of many school years to come.
To create your first and last day of school flags. Just follow these steps:
You will need: my first and last day of school flag printables, a dowel rod, tissue paper tassels or ribbons to decorate, tape and scissors.
- First, download the free printable flags (located in our free printable library—info at the bottom of this post). The pennant flags are sized to be printed on 11×17 sized paper.
- Next, cut out the entire perimeter of the flag.
- Then, slide the tissue paper tassels onto the dowel rod.
- Lastly, simply wrap the flag around the dowel rod and tape or glue. Done! So cute! Perfect for first (and last) day of school photos!
