October is Pastor Appreciation month! Here’s a sweet idea that you and the kids can use to show your pastors they’re cared for!
Giant Candy Bar Card
- Visit your local grocery store and pick up anywhere from 3-10 candy bars or packs of gum. It’s helpful if the names of the candy bars can be used in multiple ways (you’ll be really good at this if you can think of puns quickly!)
- Find a large piece of cardstock paper or cardboard that you can write on with a marker.
- On a separate piece of paper, write a first draft using the names of the candy bars you bought at the store. Here’s an example with the candy bar names in [brackets]:
We are [Extra] thankful to have you! We wouldn’t trade you for [100 Grand] and you bring us [Mounds] of [Almond Joy]! We are grateful your kind words and encouragement when we’re in a [Crunch] and you bless us to [Reese’s Pieces] with your sermons and friendship!
We appreciate you to the [Milky Way] and back!
The Bible [Nerds]
- Copy the letter onto the large cardstock or piece of cardboard, leaving space to tape or paste the candy bars in their places. Voila! You’ve got a sweet card for your pastor! 🙂
