The summer officially came to a close in this household today. Big Bug started third grade! It was a new grade in a new school in a new state with a new teacher. Whew. So we made a First Day of School Sign to remember the day.
Thanks to Pic Monkey you can create any kind of sign you want. To create a chalkboard sign upload a chalkboard background image or use the various effects they have to give you that cool chalkboard look. Choose fonts that you think look hand drawn and go from there.
When I was done I had Staples print a colored engineering print (about $5 for an 18×24 print) and I was good to go. At home I added real chalk to the print to give it a little more depth and put it in a poster frame just so it would be easier to hold.
Do you have any back to school traditions?
