Free First Day of Homeschool Printables for Fun Keepsakes
Fun & Easy Activities to Make Back to Homeschool SpecialThe first day of homeschool can feel like a whirlwind. You feel like you have a lot of things to go over with your children. And there’s a mix of excitement with a touch of nerves that makes it easy to forget to slow down and make the most of the moment. Or maybe taking it slow isn’t an issue but you want a quick and easy way to talk with your kids about the upcoming homeschool year AND preserve their thoughts and feelings? You want to enjoy what matters most and not get lost in your to-do list. I totally get it. These first day of homeschool printables are fantastic resources for helping you do just that so you can look back on your first day with a smile 🙂 My five boys and I love to look back on and chat about fun keepsakes, like these first day of homeschool printables. They enjoy seeing what their handwriting was like, what their favorite book or food was, and what they were looking forward to the most this school year. We chat about how some of these things have stayed the same or have changed. Great conversation starters! In addition to having this activity to enjoy on our first day of homeschool, I add these papers to our homeschool portfolio. We live in Pennsylvania where homeschool portfolio evaluations are required. These simple sheets are fantastic ways to start off our portfolios!
Get Your Free First Day of Homeschool PrintablesTo add to our 25 Fun Back-to-Homeschool First Day Ideas, I created these free first day of homeschool printables to use with my boys and to share with your family 🙂 There are three cute styles: boy, girl, and neutral. These printables are in black and white so your child can color and customize. Crayons, color pencils, and markers work well. Kwik Stix are quick-drying tempera paint sticks that are also great ways to decorate and make these memory keepers special.

Hey Kristen! WooHoo for starting your homeschool year!! That’s so awesome. Make sure to check out 25Fun Back to Homeschool Fun First Day Ideas. And best wishes for your homeschool!
This is our 3rd year homeschooling. Last year I saw scavenger hunt ideas, so I went with that for the 1st day. When the kids woke up I had drawn a welcome 3 for third and 4 for fourth on their bathroom mirror and wrote a riddle to get them started. Once they answered they could come to breakfast where under their plate was a clue to their first station. I had several stations setup inside and outside our 2 acres and games from each of the subjects as well as their school books for that subject they would collect at each station. The games were very fun and the kids loved the prizes if they completed the game or riddle or activity I had setup. They both said it was the best day of school ever. So now I’m trying to figure something to compete, LOL.
