October is Pastor Appreciation month! Here’s a sweet idea from RoseKidz that you and the kids or grandkids 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. 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 or purchase 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]:
Dear Pastor ____,
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 [Good and Plenty] sermons and friendship! We appreciate you to the [Milky Way] and back!
The Bible [Nerds]
- Copy the letter onto the cardstock or cardboard, leaving space to tape or glue the candy bars in their places. Voila! You’ve got a sweet card for your pastor! 🙂
