Christmas Service Party

This year, about a week before Christmas, we decided to have a little service party with our family. My brother, Jake, joined us for an afternoon of food, Christmas music, and doing service. We wanted to do something this year that the kids could really be a big part of. We decided to make children's snack sacks for the Provo Food Bank; an idea inspired by the kids' school. When families come in for help with food or shelter these little sacks are given to the children so they have something special. We colored pictures on brown paper sacks and filled them with a juice box, cheese and cracker pack, granola bar, fruit snacks, and some play-dough.
Then we exchaged or Christmas gifts with Jake since he won't be here for Christmas. His gift to the kids was a HUGE hit. I didn't get any pictures of them playing with it, but they love it.


We had all had fun, and got to help others at the same time. That's what you call a win-win situation.

What a fun little service project I bet the kids really enjoyed doing that.
