How is it time for the first day of school already?!  If there is one thing I know, it is how fast these years are going by. Document the first day of school this year with a DIY First Day of School Chalkboard!

First Day of School Chalkboard

You always hear from your elders how kids grow up in the blink of an eye. Now that my boys are growing up before my eyes, I see just how true this statement is. Summer break, then fall break, then winter break, then spring break and then BOOM summer break again. Crazy, isn’t it?

Want to make your own before school starts? All you need is a piece of chalkboard and a Cricut machine (although any vinyl cutting machine would work). Pre-cut chalkboards from craft stores or found online would work perfect.

Spell out your child’s name (or don’t, especially if you have multiple children, you can write it in) and place your dots.  Be to sure to include all of the information you’d like to remember.
