It’s become a tradition at our home to take the requisite first day of school pictures. While we will always use a standard sign for some of their pictures, I decided I also wanted to do something a little outside the box this year, and since all three of my sweet kidlets are currently obsessed with balloons, incorporating their favorite toy into the photos seemed like a no-brainer. When I offered up the idea of creating our own Back to School Balloons, they jumped at the chance and actually willingly agreed to take the photos without a fight!

Step One. Download the printable grades file here: Back to School Balloon Grades. The grades are available from Pre-K through 12.
Step Two. Cut around the edge of the letter or number with scissors. I chose to leave the black outline because it helped the number “pop” from the balloon better.
Step Three. Blow up your balloons with the Balloon Time helium tank. For more information on how to properly use the product, fill balloons and other best practices, please visit: http://www.balloontime.com/how-to/filling-and-float-time/ and http://www.balloontime.com/how-to/using-our-products/.
Step Four. Use the permanent double stick adhesive to adhere the paper number/letter to the balloon. I did this while my daughter was holding the balloon and it made for a great photo opportunity, too.
See what I’m talking about?!
Reagan absolutely loved getting a chance to take super fun and original pictures for the first day of school; the balloons were a hit!
