For those of you that follow Mini Maison on Instagram, you'll see that our eldest 'baby' (sob!) is starting school in a few weeks. I don't know how this happened but I've finally accepted that it is actually happening and I'm trying to celebrate and embrace it! I wanted a family tradition that we could look back on year after year - to see how our children grow, change and develop. To celebrate their first days of school, every single year (until they get to an age where they refuse and moan at us for being 'so uncool'!) as something that we can look back on and treasure.
Without my boys there would be no Mini Maison so it felt only right that I share our design with you all, so you too can create your own family tradition, on the first day of school.
Creating these memories and traditions are such a special part of being a family and as adults don't you just love looking back now at those bent, yellowing photo albums of you with the most terrible haircuts and the missing front tooth?! We've taken this to the next level with our Back to School sign, I hope you all love using it as much as we will.
AND we are giving this away for FREE as a thank you for following our journey and being the most amazing customers.
All you have to do is download your free printable, fill it in with your child's help, (which in itself is a lovely thing to do together) and then once they've got their school uniform on, on the first day of school, get them to hold their sign up and snap away.
Here is the colour version (use this version if you can, it looks so pretty):
Here is the black and white version (in case your toner is low!):
Whether your kids are going back to a school they know or they're starting at a brand new school, remember to celebrate this moment! And if you do share on social media then please tag us so that we can get all emotional with you (although the tears will probably already be free flowing this end anyway!).
Oh and remember to bookmark this page so you can come back year after year for your free Back to School sign download!
See ya soon!
