FREEBIE FRIDAY! It's your lucky day...TWO Freebies are on the way!

Happy Friday!

Lots of great responses and pictures from the last preschool board!  I loved seeing all your little cuties holding their signs.  Totally made my week! So, I'm releasing TWO freebies today so you can get the whole family in on all the cute pics.  There's one for Kindergarten and another board so you can fill in the appropriate grade for your older kiddos.  Feel free to share this post and pin!























The technical stuff before the fun...
Just a quick note before you download the FREEBIES-  Only open the editable PDF files in Adobe Reader.  If you're on a Mac just know that Editable PDFs don't play well with the Mac Previewer.  You can download Adobe Reader for FREE so no worries!  Included in the zipped file will be instructions for editing in Adobe Reader if you've never done this before.  It's super easy!

Also, if you want the exact fonts I used, download those first before you open the file and start editing. 

FREE Fonts I used:
Chalkhand http://www.dafont.com/chalk-hand-lettering-shaded.font
FFF Tusj http://www.dafont.com/fff-tusj.font
Grutch Shaded http://www.dafont.com/font-comment.php?file=grutchshaded
Kraft Nine http://www.dafont.com/search.php?q=Kraft+Nine
Return to Sender http://www.dafont.com/return-to-sender.font 

So, finally to the great part...the links to your FREEBIES!!!

Just add it to your cart and go check your email and you'll have a link waiting for you!

Send me pictures of what you made!  Enjoy!

  3. I sent a message via Facebook, but I will leave my comment here too.

    I downloaded the Kindergarten board, and when I printed it, it cut off the word Kindergarten. This was the 2nd time I had printed, the 1st time it was fine, except I hadn't edited the color of the words yet (not until I had seen the above instructions for how to do that :) ). Any suggestions?

    1. I have to set my printer to borderless. Have you tried that? I've never had it print differently from time to time!

  5. I am able to complete and print out the document without issue, except for the name field at the top. It cuts off my last 5 letters in my son's name. (This is on the grade document.) On the Kindergarten document, it will not print out the name at all. All other fields are fine. Any help is appreciated!

    1. This file is a poster size 16" x 20". You may have to take the file to a print shop to have it printed the correct size.

  14. Mine is not letting me edit the color. I have downloaded all the fonts and I have it opened in Adobe Reader on my mac. Are there any other tips you could give me? I can't find the "format field properties" toolbar anywhere.

  15. if you hit control E for macs, it will let you change the text color, font size and even font. I think it is command E for PCs

  16. The minute I sent my other reply I opened it again and tried just common E (not really sure why I didn't do that before) and it worked! Thank you for your reply!

  17. Hello and thank you for sharing this amazing printout! Is there a way to change from Kindergarten to Preschool?

  18. I downloaded both of these and there are no text boxes for me to edit. It says the file is protected and therefore not editable.

  30. Any idea how to change the fonts on a chromebook. I have adobe reader and I can write all the editable areas but the font of the name, and "I want to be", and "favorite book" are a jumble. Super Cute printable! Thank you for offering for FREE!
