One of my favorite Back to School read alouds is The Kissing Hand. There is something so heartwarming about this story that kids can relate to. “Being like Chester” and staying so brave at school until they see their families again at the end of the day is something we always start the year off with. We even have a Chester stuffed animal in our room! If you love this story too, you will love these Kissing Hand crafts to try this Back to School season with your kids!
*This pairs perfectly with our Back to School Centers and Activities for Pre-K & Kindergarten!
