DIY Tutorial - How to Pack Blessing Bags
It’s become a humble tradition for us to put together blessing bags each year to give to the homeless in our community. We typically go to a local park and hand them out with our kids. These are also great to make for homeless shelters or keep handy in your car when you see someone in need.
The kids love helping by decorating and fill the bags. They usually draw pictures and write a special message. In the past, they have drawn a person, rays of sun for hope and a house in hopes they will find a permanent home soon. We collect items from our various hotel stays, dental visits and combined them with some other useful items like snacks, bandages and feminine products. For more ideas and a printable checklist on items that would be great for blessing bags this is a great site.
We attach this business card sized card into all the bags to help encourage and motivate those who receive them. Click here to download a printable of this card.
Although these donations are small, they are a very real and tangible way to help someone in need and a great way to teach our kids to be humble and have compassion for others.
Hope this inspires you to get your kids involved in blessing someone else’s life!
