First Day of School Printable Sign Options

1.  Black & White
This is the one that I used last year. It’s nice, it’s back and white (if you don’t have a color printer) and it’s gender neutral. 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.

  1. Thanks for rounding up all these cute printables. I used to print them but then my printer went wacko about a year ago so I just started handwriting them instead. These are much cuter though!

  2. I love the first option with the leaves and the colorful option as well. Thanks for the link, I’m hoping to print these out and use one this year as my son will be returning back to preschool.
