First Day of School Sign

First day of school signs have pretty much become a tradition in most homes! For me it has always been scouring the internet the night before or even worse the morning of trying to print a cute first day of school sign that I could print in 5 seconds. 

These first day of school signs are made for the 2021-2022 school year. (How are the kids growing up that much?!) Each year we will update these and perhaps change the design a bit, so don’t forget to bookmark this page and also pin it to Pinterest so you can easily find it every year! 

To grab your back to school signs, be sure to enter your email and you will get a link sent right to your email in no time at all for you to print. 

Editable First Day of School Sign

We didn’t want to just give you a generic back to school sign this year, we wanted to give you an editable version so that you can customize it to your child. 

Once you receive the link, you will get an invitation to Canva where you can customize certain parts like your child’s name, their school, their interests, and their favorite color. Please note you won’t be able to edit everything, just the important parts that matter. 

You will also receive full instructions on how is the best way to edit these. You might have to make simple adjustments in the size of the font to adjust for your child’s name, school and that.
