Make Your Own First Day of School Sign

We are happy to partner with Pentel on this sponsored post. All opinions are our own. 

Kids are all about creating things and as we head back to school we still want to have some last minute end of summer fun. My girls love to craft and creating things. Different paper and pens are always fun and a great idea to keep around as we head back to school. We created this super simple color your own back to school first day of school printable. You can download your own free copy of the printable.

Most kids love to get create with their hands. Our girls love to color and draw so we knew that a color your own first day of school sign would be a really fun and simple idea to have some pre-back to school fun.

As we head back to school this week I love that my girls are helping to create a fun new memory and it’s something I can actually save for years to come. Not just a simple first day of school photo

Sparkle Pop

    • Add a unique “Pop” of shimmering color to your writing world
    • New innovative, reflective and sparkling iridescent ink is ultra-glittery
    • Ink looks like a different color when writing on black or white paper (2 colors in 1)
    • Perfect for cards, drawings, doodles and other designs

Milky Pop

  • Add a “Pop” of pizzazz to any page with milky pastel ink colors
  • Vivid pastel colored ink contrasts well with dark colored paper to make your writing and artwork stand out
  • Perfect for invitations, greeting cards, drawing and more

Solar Pop

  • Add a “Pop” of bright neon color to your life
  • Unique ink glows bright under a blacklight
  • Vibrant fluorescent neon ink colors give your writing and artwork extra visual attention

It’s super easy to create something new and exciting. You can use the Pop by Pentel products with almost any craft or creative projects. I’ll be keeping myself organized with a bright and fun planner and as we head back to school our kids will have fun pens to use too. I love that our first day of school has a fun and unique handmade touch too!

    Such an adorable idea. Kids’ love getting creative and I find that simply amazing.



  3. Wanda Lopez on August 7, 2018 at 5:47 am

    Great idea. My girls love taking a picture when school starts. We’ve never made signs before.



  4. Rachel on August 6, 2018 at 8:54 pm

    This is a cute idea. I will never get around to making one, so I should definitely let my kids do it.



  5. Peter on August 6, 2018 at 8:48 pm

    I love these. I should get my kids to make something similar.



  6. Mama to 6 Blessings on August 6, 2018 at 6:13 pm

    We are doing something similar in our homeschool group for the 1st day. I think homemade is better anyways! Have a great school year!

    This is such a cute sign. I love when my kids make their own signs for back to school!



  8. Kathy on August 6, 2018 at 5:47 pm

    This is such a cute idea. I love it! I love that the kids can do this on their own. Makes it that much more special too.

    My baby is about to start high school, but it’s never too late to make a bts sign! I really think these pens look like a lot of fun. And would be handy for upcoming class projects too!



  10. Amy on August 6, 2018 at 5:13 pm

    These pens are just so fun! I totally would love to color all day with them and create fun designs!



  11. Jeni Hawkins on August 6, 2018 at 5:06 pm

    What a cute idea! How neat that they make their own sign to hold up – very clever!



  12. Sherry on August 6, 2018 at 5:03 pm

    I think making your own first day of school signs is a fun idea for the kids. I am loving those pens. I need to get them for myself.



  13. Anne Marie on August 6, 2018 at 4:53 pm

    Thanks for sharing your cute printable! I was looking for a fun and easy activity for our first day and this does the trick.



  14. Jeanine on August 6, 2018 at 4:52 pm

    Oh how fun! Super cute too. We still have until September before our kids head back so we will try this too!



  15. Pam Wattenbarger on August 6, 2018 at 3:34 pm

    This is a great way to get kids excited about the school year. I like to use those glitter pens myself!



  16. Allison Cooper on August 6, 2018 at 3:24 pm

    These are adorable! I love the idea of having these memorable signs and how your kiddos colored them to personalize!



  17. robin rue on August 6, 2018 at 1:51 pm

    I will have to try this, but luckily I have plenty of time – we don’t go back for a month here 🙂



    • Pam Wattenbarger on August 6, 2018 at 3:46 pm

      Wow, Robin! That’s great you start later. All the schools in our area started last week!



  18. Liz Mays on August 6, 2018 at 1:30 pm

    This is too fun and a great way to start off the school year. Having some colorful pens on hand for all of the school projects is a good idea
