Create “Cheer Packages” to brighten someone’s day!
- Lunch size paper bags
- Markers, Colored Pencils or Crayons
- Variety of simple verses for kids to write on the bags OR Bible Verse stickers
Individually wrapped Treat items (hard candy mints, peanut butter crackers, animal crackers, cheese crackers, bite size candy bars, chewing gum, etc.)
Allow children to decorate a bag with the words “Cheer Package” and any other decorations or appropriate Bible verses they want to add. Once the bags have been decorated, assist the boys and girls in placing one or two of each of the items brought. Older kids may enjoy including a note written on paper that might include the following:
“My name is (first name only) .
God loves you and so do your friends at ________________ Church.”
This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
Give the completed “Cheer Packages” to your Pastor or other staff members to deliver as they make hospital or nursing home visits. These cheer packages are sure to brighten the day of the recipient.
