K is for Kindergarten!

I am slowly thinking about the beginning of the year, and I have an idea to share for a back to school photo idea.  I’ve seen this on pinterest for different kids holding a number for their age.  I want the students to hold a “K” for their first day of Kindergarten.
Things needed to make the “K”-
-Giant K: from Michael’s craft store
-Mod Podge
-scrapbook paper

Steps to make the “K”-
1.  Trace the K onto the scrapbook paper
2.  Cut out the paper and mod podge it onto the K
3.  I mod podged ribbon on the outside of the K to give it a clean edge

It takes a couple of hours to dry and then it is good to go!

This is my friend’s adorable little girl.  We practiced taking back to school photos because she will be going into Kindergarten next year!

I made this template “K is for Kindergarten” to use as a backdrop for the photo.  I will take a picture of each child on the first day of school, then glue it onto this little poster.  
Ways to use it:
You could make one for each child and make a back to school bulletin board, or use it as the cover of your yearly portfolios, or send them home as a back to school gift!

    I agree with April….love this idea so much better than the frame. I'm not very "crafty" but I can do this…and I already have a letter K! Now where did I store that Mod Podge? Thanks for sharing. 🙂

      Years ago, a colleague of mine did "Coming in 1st" & used a blue ribbon type theme…

    I saw your picture on Instagram and promptly went out and bought a K. I love the idea because my last name also starts with a K and I will put this little beauty on my teacher board after pictures are done. I love a craft that does double duty.

    I LOVE this!!! Too bad I didn't see it before going to Michaels this morning. I may use this idea for a door sign.

    I went to Michael's today and found everything I needed but could not find big letters or numbers. How tall is your letter – the Michaels' I went to may not carry that item but I could order it. Thanks
