First Day of School Name Plate

One of my favorite annual traditions is having my boys hold a first day of school sign in front of our front door each year. I have just two years left of this tradition, but I have photos of each them for every single first day of school for the last 18 years. However, my favorite photos of them are the ones with them holding hand written signs. One year we made a similar first day of school name plate for the boys, and it is so sweet to look back at it and see their little kid handwriting!

Let’s get started on this First Day of School Name Plate project! Firstly, gather all of your supplies. This will make your project a lot easier. I was able to gather all of the supplies I needed from our craft supply box. 

Begin by sketching a school bus on yellow construction paper. However, you could also sketch a school house. Cut it out and set it aside.

Then, cut out black circles and squares for the bus wheels and windows, and a white rectangle for their name.  

Then, glue the window squares and circle wheels, and the white rectangle onto the yellow bus.

Finally, after the glue dries, have your child write their name on the bus. Then, have them hold their cute little school bus sign on the first day of school for pictures.
