Ready or not, the first day of school is fast approaching (doesn’t it feel like summer just got started?!)! I created these printable chalkboard first day of school signs so you can easily capture the memory.

Just print out on 8×10 cardstock or glossy photo paper (because the chalkboard background is so dark, you may want to have professionally printed to save your ink!), have your little one hold the sign and snap your pic! Click below to download:

I absolutely love these signs you made! Do you plan on continuing to make them for each school year? I've been using these the last two years for my kiddos, but it would be great to continue using the same design! Thank you!

Yes, we make these signs for the beginning and end of each school year. This fall's signs were posted a couple weeks ago! Simply go to our homepage and scroll down until you reach the post. Thanks so much! :)

Hi there! I love these printables and have happily sent the "first day of preschool" to be printed. Which brings me to my concern: will these be updated every year? I would love to use the same print for each of the first days through the years...or is there an editable one I might be able to use just so the year can be updated?

Thanks again for sharing these; I'm excited about using the preschool one on Tuesday!

Yes, these will definitely be updated each year, and for the end of school, too. Thanks for your question!! Have a great day!

I stuck mine in a frame to make it easier to hold  and once the photos were taken the frames have been hanging in the kids’ respective bedrooms until it’s time to take the next first day of school photos.
