    I love these signs. I have used them every year for my daughter; who is now in the 8th Grade. I use a glue stick and mount it to a stray piece of cardboard. And then my daughter stands next to the tree in our front yard for the photo. However, we moved a few years ago, so now she stands by a different tree. Great time table for her and the tree.

    I printed off a whole set (Preschool-12th grade) of first and last day signs for each of my kids when they started preschool. I keep them in a folder with other important papers and then just pull out the one I need and write on the date. Another thing I do is take ‘first day’ photos the day before school starts. This way we aren’t rushed the first morning.

      I love this idea Andrea! Great tip – thanks.
