Social Media Plan for Elementary Parents starting December 16

Racking your brain for a way to provoke meaningful conversations between parents and their elementary kids in less than 140 characters? Well, rack no more!

Below, you will find everything you need to cue parents this week through every major social media outlet from Twitter to Pinterest (so you can focus your brain power on posting the really important stuff—like that picture you just took of your cat dressed as The Grinch). And if you missed our first post explaining what all this is, take a second to get up to speed by clicking here!

Facebook: Possible Timeline Photos for December:



  • Monday:  Yesterday, your child learned what JOY Jesus brought to the earth.


  • Thursday:  Did you know that exercising is scientifically proven to make you happy? Don’t worry, exercise doesn’t have to be running the mile in less than 10 minutes or rolling out the yoga mat. Exercise can be as fun as a game of soccer with kids from your neighborhood. And if you live somewhere that is way too cold for going outside, see how long you can keep a hula-hoop spinning, jump rope, or try learning how to juggle. And don’t forget one of the most fun ways to get your heart rate up, inside or outside: host a dance off! Invite all your friends over or just get your family together. Clear a space in the living room or another room of the house, crank up the tunes and show off your best dance moves. Just make sure you don’t break that favorite flower vase while spinning on your head!
  • Friday:  Watch this story of how God showed up in a very unexpected way… and place!
