INSIDE: How to make a reusable chalkboard sign for the first and last days of school.
How do you mark the first day of a whole new school year? Or the last day of school before everyone is home…all day for the next two months?!
The morning I sent my little girl off to kindergarten, I cut up a waffle in the shape of a K. One year gone too quickly, I found myself shaping a waffle into a 1. Before I knew it, I was doing my best to form a 2 out of a frozen waffle. (Apparently, having a number shaped waffle has become our First Day of School tradition.)
The school bound child is then told to pose with a DIY reusable chalkboard sign. They balk but I convince them someday their children will want to see these photos. Eye roll. Sigh. Smile. Ten months later, I make them repeat this school milestone photo session on their Last Day of School.
Here’s how to make your own chalkboard school sign to make your own kids pose, smile…and balk at a motherly requests!
