Because you only start Pre-K and First Grade once (hopefully) it seemed signage was in order. When I ship the kids off to enrich their little minds and ween them off of the iPad next week I will have these fun Poster Puffy Paint signs hand to take their picture with. I can't wait. No really, I love my kids, but I CAN'T WAIT.
I used cardboard as my substrate, but really poster board or foam board will work too. Draw the outline of a large pencil and another the shape of a sheet of notebook paper. Cut out with scissors or a craft knife.
The pencil is more of a prop and the notebook paper is the actual sign. I'm a scrapbooker, compulsive picture taker, over documentarian of my children's lives. It only makes sense that I would make them first day of school signs. By the way how are my kids that old already? Oh and yes I'll be making signs like this in 20+ years that say "first day of grad school".
Now when and if my children ever graduate to showers we will be ready!
