OT, A student of mine, 6yr old boy, broke his wrist and I want to give him a little something that will let him know that I'm thinking of him. I teach Sunday School. What would you give him?

Excellent lesson for the kids: gather them around him, with each person laying a hand lightly on him, and you can pray something to the extent of, "Lord, thanks for the gift of every child here (and list them by name, with his name last). We thank you for our many blessings, and we ask for Your healing hand to bless (child's name) so that his broken wrist can heal soon and be made whole again. We also ask for prayers for anyone who's hurting or sick, for it's in Your precious Son's name we pray, Amen," and emphasize the importance of leaving him alone while he heals, as in, not touching his "owie." You might use straight pretzels to illustrate how easily a bone is broken, and how gentle we need to be with each other, and also how Jesus heals the broken? Just some ideas; you're so sweet to think of him. Later on, you can show the students how their prayers helped him get better.

Be careful about "giving" food; at that age, they can misinterpret that being hurt gets you goodies, just sayin'.

If you're near a Christian book store, maybe a "worry stone" or cross that he can tell his troubles to, with the verse, "Be still, and know that I am God." Does he or any family members have any food allergies to consider?

Johanna, that's a good idea! (the prayer) He does have 2 oldre sisters, mom and dad. I do not know if they have allergies. His arm is in a cast and I will def. have to tell the other students not to touch. I was thinking of buying him something to take to his house but will go with your idea. Thanks!

They make all sorts of those cards with little sound buttons that sing songs (don't know what you call them). What about something simple like that with maybe a little gift on top like a fall-themed candy on the envelope?

What's his favorite thing to eat? I'm in school for occupational therapy, and I think food is awesome to give as a TREAT. As long as it is explained as that. Don't we all get chicken noodle soup when we're sick? Lol.
