Do you take pictures of your kids on the first day of school? There are a lot of cute signs out there that you can print out that says “First Day of _____” (insert the new grade). We have a couple more cute ideas for you to try as well!
Get your child a tee shirt in an adult size (like adult medium or large) that says the year the will graduate from high school (example: Class of 2030). You can find them on Amazon or Etsy. Take a picture of them wearing it (it will be hilariously huge on them at first) every year on the first day of school through their senior year of high school. It will be so fun to look back over the years and see how much bigger they get. Hopefully the shirt fits them by the time they graduate!
Get a chalkboard and write down some of your child’s favorite things (their favorite meal or friends or hobbies). Also write the date and what grade they are entering and photograph them next to the chalk board.
One more cute idea is to have them hold up their favorite book in the picture. It will be fun to remember what they were reading each year and see how well their reading progresses.
We hope you have a great school year!
