My absolute FAVORITE thing we did was our Kissing Hand necklaces. We read The Kissing Hand and retold the story with our felt board a million times. The night before her first day of school I gave her a special Kissing Hand necklace.
It has her name on the back of her's and mine says Mommy on the back. I purchased it from this wonderful Etsy seller HERE if you are interested. Speaking of the night before her first day...we had our School Year's Eve party!
Her Magic School Year's Eve pillowcase designed to bring her sweet dreams and take away her fears. The racoon is Chester from The Kissing Hand :)
The Kissing Hand felt pieces.
Her first day of school was awesome! There were tears when I left, but she did not cry long. We had a blast in the moring! She had heart-shaped waffle pops and got her Shultute.
She came home with a smile on her face and very proud of her first day certificate and coloring.
She called Daddy and then Grandma :)
She had a First Day of School lunch!
And for dessert we celebrated with cookie-brownies and sparklers!
