The isles at target are filled with school supplies like back packs, crayons, glue, folders, 3 ring binders, #2 pencils, pencil cases, and back to school clothes. The days are still warm and beckon us to still go to the pool, play at the playground, head out on another summer camping trip or roadtrip vacation. But alas, that’s not the case. Every year that goes by summer seems to go faster and faster – my kids are growing up. Who said they could do that?!

But I will admit, I love fall and back to school is the beginning of fall in my book, even if the calendar doesn’t agree. The problem is that schools are going back to school earlier and earlier! When I was a child, we didn’t go back to school until after Labor Day, but now kids are going back to classrooms in August! Yikes! No wonder I am feeling nostaligic for lazy summer days. But I digress.

Young students are always excited to get a new backpack, lunch box, and a fresh set of school supplies. They love picking out their outfit for those notorious first day of school pictures! I’ll admit, I love taking them too. It is fun to capture and freeze a moment in time.  When students actually start school it is fun to have lots of cute, hands on educational activities to make learning FUN. This sets up your year with excited learners. Start out your year right with these fun first day of school printable perfect for Pre k, preschool, kindergarten, and grade 1 students in September.
