Friday we had our first back to school celebration with our cousins. I’d been planning this thing since the beginning of summer and I was determined to make it really nice for the children. The theme was seeking God’s treasures. Those things that God values above rubies. Wisdom, understanding, knowledge, and trusting him. I wanted to encourage the children attending that hard work and diligence will pay off with these virtues.
It was really fun!
We started with a treasure hunt for school supplies. The treasure hunt was based in proverbs and each scripture gave a clue to the next school supply. Since we have a lot of open space, I hid most of the supplies in our garden. The last clue was to lunch and after lunch my sister-in-law and I set up some things that we had for a photo-op. I also made chalk board speech bubbles from foam board that we used for photo’s. My picture’s are all over the place honestly because I just snapped as the kiddos ran. I can’t believe I got any pictures worth showing. Oh but I so can’t wait to do it again next year!
My kid Hero took this in to his new teacher and we heard back that she loved it!
