I’m one of those mums who loves to mark every occasion. Cards, special breakfasts, lots of photos – anything goes! I’m happy to make a big deal of first days, last days, exams and everything else.

The summer holidays have passed way too quickly and I can’t believe we’re getting ready to go back to school. This term we thought we’d start the first day of term with something a little different, and have been crafting a Back to School photo frame.

To create our Back To School photo frame we used:
A4 coloured card
Bostik Foam Pads
Alphabet letters

We used a ruler to draw lines around the card and cut out the middle to create a photo frame. Then my son decorated the frame.

He wanted to add the phrase ‘First Day’ so found all the letters he needed and attached them using the Bostik Foam Pads.

Then he decorated the rest of the frame with whatever foam stickers and decorations he could find.

He enjoyed this so much that his younger sister had to make one too!

I can’t believe we only have two weeks left of the summer holidays. They really are flying by this year.

Disclosure – we were sent these craft products as we are Bostik Family Craft Bloggers

    […] Make a special photo frame to take that important first day of school photo. Even better, let them make their own frame. Take a look at our kid-made photo frame. […]
