I can’t believe that some of you are already starting school again on Monday. Could summer vacation be over so soon? Luckily, Little Bug still has a number of weeks to enjoy of summer vacation left, but for those of you who are headed back in the next few weeks, I wanted to share our new free printable back to school chalkboard quote bubble.
I love back to school pictures. One of my favorite traditions that I’ve started with Little Bug is to take a photo on the first day and last day of school. It’s amazing to see how much the little ones change and grow during the school year. I’ll be the first to admit, though, I haven’t gotten fancy with our photos yet. Normally, it’s me scurrying around on in a crazy rush – packing lunches, getting her dressed and grabbing tissues. I don’t usually have time for a fancy photo set up with props and the perfect backdrop. So far, I’ve only managed a quick snapshot in front of the car. (Okay, we’ve only done this one year. I’m definitely far from being a pro and am aiming for improvement.)
So, this year’s back to school strategy is to take the photos a few days before school starts. Some may call this cheating, but I think it’s getting the job done. And at least I’ll have some cute photos. I’ve been in love with all of the adorable printable photo props that I’ve seen around, so I had to create my own version.
Since Little Bug loves to talk – “I want to talk” is her favorite phrase – I chose a chalkboard quote bubble for our photo sign. Although I found it a little difficult to get my preschooler to hold it up correctly for too long, I did manage to snap a few. I even made the grade level editable! That way you can change it to fit your current kid(s) grades. Use for your first day of school photos or even as a photo prop at a back to school party. It would even make a sweet gift to your child’s teacher the first day of school to use with classroom photos.
You can download your free printable back to school quote bubble photo prop here. For this sign, I used Claire Hand font. If you do not have Claire Hand font, but would like to match the fonts, check out this fun free handwritten font here.
I hope everyone has a wonderful first day of school. If you’re looking for some other back to school fun, be sure to check out our washi tape pencil gift for teachers or our gumball ruler craft.
