School is back in two weeks and I have a free First Day of School printable for those back to school photos! It is super easy to put together and super cute!
I can’t believe I am sitting here talking about my kids going back to school already. Summer is really flying by and I’m here preparing for those back to school pictures. This back-to-school season is different and will be full of a lot of emotions- the twins are starting preschool.

So many of you mamas are gearing up for the new school year and I thought sharing this easy to make pennant flag would be fun. The First Day of School Printable is easy to download and I have included a downloadable file with all the grades and just a simple First Day of School option too.
Free First Day of School Printable
You can make this as fancy or as simple as you’d like. I bought absolutely ZERO materials and used ribbons and stickers I owned to make these flags.
- Card stock: I went with a plain white card stock so the black font would standout but feel fry to try something with color
- Dowels: I used 12 inch craft dowels I had leftover from other projects
- Hot Glue Gun: One of my favorite glue guns is the Surebonder Dual Temp & it’s only $10 on Amazon
- Ribbon: You can use ribbon, twine, yarn, etc. I recommend looking through what already own and finding something that works.
- Stickers. You can use stickers like I did or a shape hole puncher or a cutting machine. OR NOTHING.
1.Print the First day of school printable. You can download the file below and print whichever one you’d like. I recommend using card stock over printer paper for thickness, durability, and for it to keep it’s shape and not flop over.
2.Cut our your first day of school printable pennant flag. You can use scissors or a paper trimmer for straight edges.
3.Fold along the dotted lines. If you have any excess when overlapping cut it off.
4.Glue your dowel to the pennant flag area where you folded
5.Add your ribbon, yarn, twine- if you have and want to. I cut each piece to 25 inches. Tie it in a knot and I also recommend adding a drop of hot glue to keep it in place
6.Cover the knot with a sticker, cutout- again if you want to.
