#WW: Pinterest-Inspired Back to School

This is why I do not often attempt the fabulous things I see on Pinterest. Original pins that inspired my attempt can be found HERE and HERE (theirs are MUCH better than mine!)

I loved the Kindergarten chalk photos and tried to recreate. Some things I learned:

  • Much better if you use HUGE letters and only the darkest colors 
  • Would work best on black pavement vs. white concrete
  • Tire marks show on white concrete
  • Kids squint when told to look up and the sun is out

Some of these are still pretty cute! I took these Tuesday night, since the first day of school is going to be quite early and a mad rush.

I'll post a few less-involved first day photos soon! You know, holding a paper sign that I wrote on with markers - a better match to my level of talent.

She also requested a photo with a book we have read excitedly for years...

My baby is in KINDERGARTEN today!!!


  1. Cute pics. Glad she is excited about starting school. I have two teens, no back to school excitement in our house.

  2. This is so cute!!! I love it!!

  3. I'm going to do this when she comes home today. I hope it doesnt rain!

  4. very cute idea! At least you caught a sunny day and not a rainy one!

  5. She is absolutely adorable! I love the pics. Those chalk ones never turn out like they do on Pinterest, but I think yours look great! I hope she has the BEST day. It looks like she's ready for the new adventures ahead.

  6. I love the idea...and hope everything went well with her first day!

  7. I love the idea and hope she had a great first day!
