Today was my oldest baby’s FIRST day of PRESCHOOL.  It’s crazy how fast time flies.  I feel like it was only yesterday she was this little bitty baby I was bringing home from the hospital. Now she is crazy energy and so smart and full of life.  She was so excited to go to school today.  She ran in and waved to Daddy and Mommy and hung up her back pack and sat in her chair.  I expected tears and leg clinging.  I thought I would have to wrench her little hands off my leg and coax her into playing with blocks or looking at a book.  I completely did not expect her to WANT me to leave!!!  Now I sit at home hoping that she does in fact tell her teacher that she needs to use the potty and doesn’t try to hold it the whole time!!!

To commemorate her big day, I put together a first day of School sign. The sign was super easy to make….all you need is a canvas, some chalk board spray paint and a chalk marker (I highly recommend the marker over regular chalk as it has a nicer, cleaner finish….also, the markers are kinda hard to find, so I recommend ordering online Uchida 480-C-0 Marvy Broad Point Tip Regular Bistro Chalk Marker, White) Step one: Spray the canvas with the spray paint.  One pretty thick coat should do the trick…if you feel you need another coat, let the first coat dry and repeat.

Step two: once the paint is dry, use the marker to add your child’s info…don’t be afraid to mess up a little…it’s chalk and it wipes off with a damp paper towel!!!

Easy Peasy:)

Here is my big girl with her sign…Happy First Day of Preschool Aubrey…I LOVE you tons!!!  Here’s hoping she’ll let me do this for her EVERY year…even when its not “cool”!

Easy peasy.  Hope you loved this quick and simple tutorial.  Be sure to check out all our craft tutorials ans DIY ideas.
