A great way to help little ones get ready to go to school is to have a special countdown to the first day!
And what better way to countdown than to spend time praying for others!
Today I am sharing a FREE Printable Back to School Countdown Prayer Chain for you to do with your kiddos.
Brainstorm a list of names of people who work at your child’s school. You can check your child’s school website for a list of staff and faculty.
Write the names of each person on the strips provided in the printable.
Cut the strips out, loop and staple together to form a chain, and begin your prayer journey.
Take off a link each day leading up to the first day of school and say a short, simple prayer for whoever is listed.
Here is a list of suggestions of people you could write on the links.
YOUR CHILD’S TEACHER
YOUR CHILD’S TEACHER FROM LAST YEAR
THE TEACHER ASSISTANTS
THE SPECIAL AREA TEACHERS
THE PRESCHOOL DIRECTOR
THE ASSISTANT PRINCIPAL
THE HEAD OF SCHOOL
THE SECURITY OFFICERS
THE FACILITIES TEAM
THE OFFICE STAFF
YOUR CHILD’S CLASSMATES
I am sending this to all of the preschool students at the school where I work. I am hoping to start a prayer revolution! 🙂
Let me know if you love this printable and how you will use it! I would also be so grateful for you to share this resource with others!
God bless you!
