First Day of School–Picture Frame

Do you love taking pictures of your Kinder kiddos the first day of school? Well, I do! I love to have a first day picture to give to parents at the end of the school year party when I hand out their memory books. It’s amazing to see how they’ve grown and changed.

To make them more memorable, I have the students hold up the “picture frame” below.

Keep reading to see how easy it is to create.

first day of school picture frame

First, get one piece of your favorite color poster board from your school. Use an exacto razor to cute out the middle of the frame. Next, use another color of poster board to cut out a star. Then, I simply wrote the “1st,” “DAY,” “of,” and “Kindergarten.” After that, I cut them out of the yellow poster board and glued them on. Finally, I took the cute scissors, paper, glue and crayons cut outs and glued them around the frame as well.

Super Easy & Super Inexpensive!

COST $0.00!!!!!

If you would like to make this too, click on the picture below to download your cut outs.
