Kids heading back to school soon? Maybe you’re a teacher looking for a cute way to welcome students to their new classroom? Either way, this First Day of School Sign is easy and fun to make. Kids will love holding it for those traditional “Back to School” photos that parents cherish!
1st Day of School Sign
As a former Elementary School Counselor, I remember many of the teachers I used to work with photographed their students holding a 1st Day of School Sign. They would print the pictures, then send them home to their students’ families. How fun and thoughtful! This sign is perfect for home or school use. I found all of the supplies at my local craft store.
Here is what you need to make this craft:
After gathering supplies and creating your Felt Apples, begin gluing the rulers to the chalkboard. I used standard white glue, but tacky craft glue or hot glue could be used as well.
Place the 12 inch rulers horizontally on the chalkboard and the 6 inch rulers vertically. If the rulers do not match up perfectly, simply leave the gaps where they will naturally be covered up with the felt apples (top left and bottom right).
Glue the felt apples to the top left and bottom right corners of the sign. Allow the glue to dry completely before writing “1st Day of School” and photographing a child holding the chalkboard.
