Kindergarten Survival Kit
This was given to a friend's child on his first day of kindergarten. It was in a party favor bag:
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's okay to make mistakes
The life saver is to let you know that you can always talk to me
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 hug is to remind you that you are cared for
The sticker is to remind you that we always stick together
