Social Media Plan for Reaching Elementary Parents Starting September 2

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 doing papier-mâché). And if you missed our first post explaining what all this is, take a second to get up to speed by clicking here!

  • Monday: No need to fear! God is here!


  • Thursday:  What do you want to do when you are afraid? Isn’t there a part of you that wants to find something or someone to jump behind and hide? This week, grab some supplies and make your very own shield to remind you that God is always with you to shield you and protect you when you are afraid. Materials: Empty cereal box, Liquid Glue, Glue stick, Aluminum foil, Decorations (Ric-Rac, glitter, foam shapes, colorful permanent markers, etc). How To: Cut the shape of a shield out of your broken down cereal box. Make raised designs out of your liquid glue around the edges of your shield and in the center if you desire. Allow glue to dry. Use the glue stick to adhere aluminum foil to the outside of your cereal box shield. Smooth foil over glue-raised designs to give your aluminum shield texture. Cut a small strip of leftover cereal box to attach at the back of your shield with dots of glue on each end. Decorate your shield however you wish!
  • Friday: Did you ever pretend you were a superhero as a kid? Watch to learn what it really means to have superhero courage!

Every parent is afraid of failure. But when you fall short of perfect, remember God is there.

What a great God to always have by our side!
