9 Creative First Day Of School Photo Ideas

Sharing is caring!

When I was a kid, nobody made special first day of school meme’s with cute frames and chalkboards. If our parents were lucky, they snapped a quick shot of us with our huge backpack and lunch boxes before we walked out the front door or as we walked into our new classrooms. But now, with the brilliance of Pinterest, moms and dads everywhere are creating memorable photos of first and last days of school with ease. If you want to document your kids’ first day of school with style, then check out some of these adorable ideas!
