Photo in a photo

This is such a cute idea for the start of each school year. Start in kindy with one photo and then the following year take a photo of your child holding their kindy photo and so on.

Chalkboard outline

If you have the space and creative inclination this is a really simple idea. Use chalk to draw an outline of the letter/number of the year your child is going in to for the year. Have your child lie inside the outline and take the photo from above. If you don’t have a suitable concrete floor space you could also do this against a concrete or brick wall.
