If you shop for postcards to send to children, you might have difficulty finding ones that are age-appropriate.

Consider making your own cards for mailing.Remember that children enjoy receiving mail! #KidMin #Friends #MrMarksClassroom
"Therefore, encourage one another and build each other up just as you are already doing." 1 Thessalonian 5:11 You can lift the spirits of teachers during stressful times of the year. Have kids fill the treat bags and utilize your pre-printed message on cardstock as the bag topper.After completing the project, pray for the recipients and schedule a time to deliver the treats to your neighborhood school. #KidMin #LovingOurTeachers #MrMarksClassroom
Here is a great idea! I always try to take a fun travel size game or coloring book when I visit a child in the hospital. This way we can talk and play a game at the same time. Candy is generally a bad idea so make you surprise fun without eating something. You can involve the kids in your church to help.
Make chemo care kits to distribute to those who are undergoing chemotherapy. Decorate a plain canvas bag. Fill with soft, colorful socks, bandannas, comfy hat or cap, puzzle books, pens and pencils, gum, mints, and note cards. Make and include notes of encouragement and prayer. Deliver the kit(s) to a friend, neighbor, or family member who is battling cancer or cancer treatment center. #LoveYourNeighbor #GetWellBag #KidMin #MrMarksClassroom
Provide instant oats, dried cherries, raisins, dried apples, cinnamon sugar, brown sugar, chocolate chips, mini marshmallows, graham cracker crumbs, honey packets, and individual coffee creamers. Measure out oats into a sandwich baggie. Make one to keep! Remind kids that God used Joseph to provide grain for a whole nation during a famine. God is using us to provide oats for one! #KidMin GiveOneToAFriend #MrMarksClassroom
