School Days Yearly Record {Free Printable by Just Add Confetti}

Can you believe the kiddos will be going back to school before we know it?! My Connor is going to kindergarten this year, and I can hardly stand the thought of it. I’m going to be a hot mess on the first day of school! But since I don’t have to send him off quite yet, I am excited to bring you a cute back-to-school project by my friend Alison of Just Add Confetti today! She is a super talented graphic designer and blogger– she even designed the cover of my eBook for me! I also love that she is a fellow Pittsburgh girl because that means I get to hang out with her in real life as well as online.

Hi Just a Girl and Her Blog readers! I’m Alison of Just Add Confetti, and I’m so thrilled to be guest posting today as Abby is recovering from her surgery. Abby and I are not only “virtual” friends but we are also real life friends! Since we both live in Pittsburgh, we have gotten into the wonderful habit of getting together for fun dinner dates and catching up on everything from blogging to potty training! I just love our “Mommy’s Night Out” evenings!

It’s hard to believe that we are already a week into August. Where did the summer go?! Since my husband is a teacher I think it’s pretty safe to say we are officially in back-to-school mode. Even though my son, Sawyer, is still too young for school it always amazes me to see how much my niece and other close friends’ children grow and change over the course of a school year. I designed and created my School Days Yearly Record as a way for you to see/remember (and document!!) all the ways your children grow and change from the first day of school to the last day of school.

A really fun feature of this little record book is that it is completely self-contained. On the first day of school have your children fill out the five “First Day of School” pages. Then, just flip the whole book over and on the last day of school have your children fill out the “Last Day of School” pages. You can read all of the first day of school pages, left to right and then when you reach the center of the book, just flip the entire book over and read the last day of school pages, left to right, until you reach the center again. The entire year is captured in this one little book!

To make your record book, first, download the printable, here.

If your printer is able to print double sided that would be the easiest way to quickly produce your record book. If not, no problem at all. Just print each sheet individually then glue together pages 1 and 2, 3 and 4, and 5 and 6.

Next, stack all of the pages in the order of the printable PDF. (Page 1 should be facing down on the bottom and page 6 should be face up, on top.) Then fold all of the pages in half and use a hole punch to make two holes for the spine of the book.

Then just thread a ribbon through the holes and tie a bow. Now your School Days Yearly Record is complete and you and your children are ready for a wonderful school year ahead!

  1. Oh this looks like a great idea! I’ve been meaning to do something like this for my kiddos, more for my daughter who will be starting school this year!

    There’s going to be lots of Mom’s very happy with you for creating this book and sharing it so generously. Makes me wish I had little ones still or at least little grands. Alas all our grands are big kids now, youngest 14, 16, 17, 18, almost 21, and oldest 24. Wish I knew somebody with little ones going to school I’d make it for them. Ah well. I will share idea with somebody. Thank you for your talent and generosity. You are a dear.
    Sure hope Abby is taking very good care of herself. Happy weekend
