Every Halloween, our church holds a huge Harvest Bash. We have games, prizes, candy, crafts, bounce houses, hot apple cider, and more! It’s really a great time for our church body and for the entire community. This year, though, I decided to have the kids help to contribute to the event. Families in the church donate bags of candy to use as prizes, so we are using some of the donated lollipops to share the love of Jesus!
Here’s what you’ll need:
Pretty simple, just some lollipops, coloring materials, and the poem printed on card stock (Here’s The Love of Jesus is So Sweet – Template I created). In case you can’t read it, the card says “The love of Jesus is so sweet! This candy is sweet, but melts away. Christ Jesus’ love is here to stay. He died for you and rose again. His love for you will never end. Made just for you by the kids at Fillmore Wesleyan Church.”
Give each of the children a piece of the card stock with the poem and have them decorate it any way they choose. You can get the idea from this one that I made:
Simple, but a great way for the kids to share the love of Jesus with their community! Could even be fun to make as a family and hand them out when trick-or-treaters come a-knockin’ 🙂
