First Day of School Sign

By: Tanner Bell and Courtney Chambers from

First Day of School SignIt may seem like you are in school forever, but one day your first days will come to an end. Savor this time of learning and change by taking a picture with a First Day of School Sign. This first day of school sign template is reusable so you can use it year after year, or use it to commemorate other special milestones in your life. See how you or your children grow and change year to year as they enter new grade levels. You could make a photo album of them holding this cute DIY chalkboard and document their school progress in a cute and creative way.



  • Plastic tray
  • Chalkboard paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Chalk
  • Letter Stickers



1. Paint the tray with three thin coats of chalkboard paint, allowing paint to dry between each coat.

2. Prime the surface by rubbing a piece of chalk all over the tray and wiping it off with a damp paper towel.

3. Use the letter stickers to spell out "[Your Name]'s First Day Of"

4. Simply write in chalk the grade you are going into and hold your chalkboard sign in all your back to school pictures!
