How to you record your kids first day of school. Since mine have been small I have taken a picture of them all decked out in their uniform with a list of their likes. I love capturing all that first day excitement with my boys and it is a great way to see how much they have changed year on year. So I have put together a great roundup of ways to record that first day at school.
We take a picture and then I picmonkey the boys likes on.
Paging Fun Mum’s does a great image with sidewalk chalk
I love the idea of making my own chalkboard speech bubble to show their year in.
Let’s Lasso the Moon using a great small chalkboard.
No chalk board then just use a notebook like Me and My Insanity
Print off the date and their school year on a sheet of paper and do the same for the last day of the year too (I am never that organised withe the last day of the school year!)
How about making a giant polaroid frame – this is so cool!
I also love the idea of just taking a pic of those shoes all clean and unscuffed with their backpack and a sign.
How cool would it be to buy a t-shirt for when they graduate and finally leave school and get a picture of them wearing it each year.
Kids being camera shy, then take a photo of their first day outfit instead.
I love how you can just share a little bit about them and what their want to be when they grow up too.
Thanks for the invitation to link up Jen. What a fun roundup of back to school picture ideas too!
Some great ideas there. With my boy I got him to hold up a sign saying first day of school with the date and his age on it. 🙂
Great idea for a linky Jen! Thanks for hosting.
Great round up of ideas, I did something similar to your picture when Baby was about 6 months old. I really should do another one x
EKKKKKKK my daughter starts school this September , loving the pictures .x
A brilliant idea I must admit. Great linky too. My son will be doing his last year in school this year, and I feel a bit sad that he has grown up
oh they all look so cute! love the chalkboard ideas 🙂
Some great ideas here for back to school photos, can’t wait to try a couple out at the start of September
These are so cute. Makes me think back to my own back to school pics.
These are all really great ideas! I really want to try out a few of them with my son. I’m pinning this post 🙂
Cool ideas and OH MY DAYS I NEED OT GET ORGANISED!
Runs off to write a list of things I need to buy…. *panics* Schools back soon!
I always take a photograph of mine in their uniform but I love the idea of taking a picture of them with all of their likes…I’m going to start doing that!
What lovely ideas…..I think I’ll have to use one of these.
Some lovely ideas to create memories for the future
Loving these photo ideas x
Fab pic ideas and link up! I’ll definitely be doing something when the girls start now you’ve inspired me 🙂
You have just given me a lot to think about. My son starts nursery this year, so will have to do something really nice to mark the moment.
