First Day of School Photo Opportunities

To continue on with our Back to School series I thought I’d share various first day of school photo shoot ideas.  It was super fun to find all these ideas, but I have way more ideas than I do kids going to school.

To start I thought I’d share with you what I’ve done each year for our first day of school.  We have used the same sign every year.  I just print out a new grade and date and then change it.  My boys would be MORTIFIED if they knew I was putting this picture on here.  For the life of me I couldn’t find their last years pictures.  So here is the 5th grade one.

OK I found it.  As you can see they were less than thrilled about picture time and insisted that they were too old to hold a sign since they were in 7th grade.

Look at all the details one picture holds.

This picture is too cute.  She takes a picture of her daughter on the first day of school, then has her hold it on her last day of school to compare the two.

    These were really cute! I love the one with all the info crammed into a chalkboard. I may do something like that at Christmas. Thanks so much for linking up with Making Space Mondays! Please come back and link up again soon–the current linky party will be open all through September to give us more moving time. Feel free to link up as many posts as you want about making your spaces better. Thanks again. -Tabitha
