First Day of School – Favorite Things Printable

Favorite Things Printable

Every year on the first day of school, I always have the children fill out their “favorite things”. It’s a fun way of seeing how their preferences have changed over the years. The last couple of years we have put them in their journals, which are just composition books, but I have created a printable this year for them. I know some of y’all aren’t religious, so I even created a Non-Religious version too that simply lists “Book” instead of “Bible Story”

The shocking thing to me was seeing how similar some of my kid’s answers were from last year. I assumed that they were just writing random things on some of the blanks, but apparently they weren’t.

Do your kids favorite things change as often as mine do?

    That’s a neat idea! My son changes what he wants to be when he grows up several times a day! LOL, but that’s so easy to speculate on, as far as his favorite things though, I’d say those have remained the same over the last few years, pirates and legos….nothing better than that. ;)

    What a great way to see how your children’s likes change year after year–at least on the important things–from what I have seen (my friends kids) their likes and dislikes change daily if not hourly on some subjects!

    These are great. My favorite things do ‘t change too awful much, but I have been surprising myself lately.

    OMG I remember when I was a TINY GIGI… I used to LOVEEE 1st day of school activities – after getting over the whole I DO NOT WANT TO GO BACK TO SCHOOL mentality though lol!

    This could really be a great help for new Moms sending their kid off to school for the first time… It’s a great gift.
