First Day of School Memory Page Printable + Blog Hop

Do you love to look back at old pictures and see how much your kids (or you) have changed? The beginning of a new school year is a great time to get your kids to write or draw a little bit about their experience. Have them do it again at the end of the year and enjoy seeing the differences!



If you read that title and thought, "Oh no! We already had the first day!!" That's okay! This does NOT have to be done on the real first day of school. It's more just to have one at the beginning of the year and end of the year to compare. But if you didn't snap a picture on the first day... I don't know if that's forgivable. Actually, I forgot last year and did a re-do a few days later ;)


Print a picture to add to the printable - Mine was sized at 2.5 x 4 inches, and then I trimmed it down to fit.



Your child fill in the answers/ or draw pictures. For non-writers, you can have a little interview.


Then try not to giggle at the answers!

Don't forget to print the "last day" version as well - it has a few different parts. I'm printing both now and putting them in a sheet protector in Bella's Project Life album!

Get the printables here:
