Kindergarten Survival Kit and Back to School Prayer

I thought this was a cute idea for kids starting kindergarten.

Kindergarten Survival Kit

The PENNY is to remind you that you are valuable.

The STAR is to remind you to always try your best.

The ERASER is to remind you that it is okay to make mistakes.

The TISSUE is for drying your tears and those of others.

The BAND-AID is to let you know that together we can make things better.

The CHOCOLATE KISS is to remind you that you are cared for.

The STICKER is to remind you that we always stick together.


I thought this was a great prayer for parents with kids going to school this fall.


BACK TO SCHOOL PRAYER


A new adventure awaits
them as they prepare
for school.

Excitement for new possibilities
and fear of the unknown
mingle in their hearts.

Thoughts of achievement
and thoughts of failure
slow their footsteps.

Bless all children
this day, O God.

Give them inquiring minds
and discerning hearts.

Give them courage
to persevere
in all they undertake.

Give them the gift
of joy and wonder
in all things.

Give them laughter
and love to share
with all.

Give them protection
and safety as they
move out of our embrace.

And give them sure
and certain knowledge
of your unfailing love.
Amen.
