It's the perfect opportunity to come alongside these apprehensive kids, or even the excited ones, and remind them that, no matter what happens at school, God is with them every step of the way. He won't leave them.. He won't forget them.
You could prepare some cutout cartoon kids like these ones. (Check out Google images.) They've been re-sized and printed as A2. (See here for instructions on how to enlarge posters and banners.) Then they were backed with heavy-weight card, cut out and given a cardboard stand. Add a small desk, some piles of books and bags but include a large print of a verse you want the kids to remember, like...Joshua 1:9
