Today we spent about twenty minutes during school-time listening to Christmas music and making Christmas presents for our sponsored kids. I scoured the internet for printable nativity scenes because I saw someone somewhere in the vast expanse of the blogosphere who sent a nativity scene to their sponsored kids and I have always wanted to do the same thing!
I have an entire Pinterest board dedicated to nativity scenes and many of them are printable. I picked this adorable one from Hart of the Mountain. They are kind of finger-puppets/playing cards. Regardless, they are super cute AND available in black and white or full-color.
Lydia colored with gusto while Asa colored the white sheep. (He’s a hard worker, I tell ya’.)
We’re going to laminate them and add a little loop of paper to the back. We also sent a special gift to our sponsored kids. $25 each. That’s it. And I know from years past that $25 can buy things like bicycles, clothes, grain and more. They usually send us a picture of the gift. I can’t wait to see what they get!
Have you written your sponsored kids this month? Why not send them a Christmas gift? There are tons of free downloads out there! Grab a fun one and send it today to make sure it arrives in time for Christmas.
ps: did you see the Compassion bloggers are heading to Peru November 13-17! Make sure you follow along–especially if you’ve been considering sponsoring a child. It might change your life. I’m not kidding.
