Before you know it, back-to-school season will be upon us. What will you do to welcome the new school year? To get in on the first day of school sign trend, choose one of these ideas, then snap the cutest, most Insta-worthy photo to post or print for your favorite frame. Whether your child is starting preschool or stepping into another elementary school grade, or your teen is all grown up and about to become a high school senior, commemorate the milestone day by capturing the memory along with a creative, themed photo prop.
Before you buy a first day of school sign, you'll want to consider the following:
- Do you want to reuse the sign over and over again for years to come?
- Do you have more than one child, meaning you'll need to use the sign multiple ways?
- Do you want to customize the sign with your child's favorite things, grade, or teacher's name?
- Do you want the sign to be displayed in your home?
- How old is your child, and will they be willing to hold the sign?
With these factors in mind, here are the best first day of school signs that you can buy before the new school year starts.
