Make the new grade year memorable with a first day of school printable sign!

Are you and your kiddos excited and ready for the new school year?! How about all you parents?! It may look a little different with most schools reintroducing in-classroom learning, which is a bit different from last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

While your kids may have mixed feelings about returning to school, let’s try to make it as fun and special as we can! ❤️ Whether continuing learning from home or from school, these FREE first day of school printable signs make cute photo props to commemorate the start of another school year and capture your child’s excitement.

I’ve designed 16 signs using this fun and stylish watercolor school supplies clip art with grades ranging from preschool all the way to college. There’s even an option for new or returning teachers who would like to save some memories from their career as an educator!

Revised 1st Day of Preschool

Let’s document these special milestones and celebrate our kid’s progress!

This is such an easy way to document these important milestones and commend your child’s growth. To use, just print the grade or grades you need for your kids. You could even put them in picture frames first, or use as-is.

Print these now so you’re prepared ahead of time and not scrambling the morning of the big day. That usually happens to me! 😉

      Hi – thanks so much for offering these. Do you have an option to print a black and white version, so students can color their own?
      Thank you, Jennifer

  11. Anne Schmitt

    Hi Linda! I love your content! Do you have a “Last day of…” printable we can use? I used your “First day” for my kiddo and would love to have the matching “Last day” to wrap up his year. Thank you!

  12. Jennifer

    Thanks Lina, for sharing these printables! Could you share a version to print in black & white also, please? Thank you!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Thanks Jennifer! To print in black and white, that should be a simple option to check (or setting) on your computer or device when you send the doc to the printer. 🙂 Hope that helps!
