Missions Dress Up!
Collect old clothes, hats, shoes, and jewelry in ethnic or international styles. Put these in a dress-up box along with items symbolizing the jobs missionaries do: a toy stethoscope, a music book, a gardener’s hat, etc. When children play dress-up they can pretend to be missionaries or people living in other cultures or countries. As they play, talk with children about how God loves all the people of the world and wants them to konw about Jesus. Explain to that how missionaries help people know about Jesus.
Make cooke carriers for use in a cookie ministry. Decorate the carriers with Bible verses, wrapping paper, the fronts of used greting cards, and stickers. Always decorate around a spiritual theme. Keep project costs down by recycling household containers such as oatmeal boxes or ice-cream buckets. Give them a new lease on life as cookie carriers. If this is a group project, ask people who sew and make crafts to donate leftover ribbon, rick-rack, sequins, etc., to the project.
