The last few days have been spent ordering backpacks, getting haircuts, signing forms, organizing uniforms, purchasing school supplies and making dental appointments. We are counting the days until Kindergarten starts.
One of the last items on my list was actually inspired by my sweet friend, Emily, whose son is also starting Kindergarten in a couple of weeks. She and I both have a strong desire to encourage our children during the day to be salt and light in their non-religious school environments. A couple of weeks ago we started talking about lunch box notes with Bible verses on them. I did a quick google search for resources in a stolen moment this afternoon and found that there seem to be quite a few options.
I would like to be able to print my own rather than purchase a set, as I have three children and would like to try to have the flexibility to do same verses or different ones depending on what was going on within our family. I also like the ability to chose different translations for verses, so the children are most likely to understand.
(And I am a control freak :-) It would certainly be nice to find a great template.
In the past I have written things on their baggies or their fruit--'banana notes' are a family favorite. Due to their age (and inability to read) these were generally simple 2-3 words notes or silly drawings. Now that I have proficient readers, I would like to go a little deeper than a banana peel might allow.
So, I thought I would open up the comments for input. Anybody have great suggestions/ideas/resources for packing the Word in your little one's lunch?
