The free first day of school signs can be used in multiple ways. Use them as a photo prop, in both your traditional and digital scrapbooking, as planner stickers, home decor or as a teaching resource.

As a Photo Prop

I have never needed an excuse to take a photo of my children, however the first day of school is always a good excuse if you need one. Have you child hold the sign for a great first day of school photo. Teachers can do the same thing with their students as they get to know each other. It can also be used for a bulletin board display surrounded by your students photos.

Just as I love taking photos, I love scrapbooking my photos! Going through scrapbooks of past years is always a highlight, sharing them with our family. Use the sign as a design element. Print it off to use in traditional scrapbooking or as a jpg in digital scrapbooking.

In your digital or traditional planner

Turn the signs into planner stickers. Use it in your planner to highlight the day.
