Christmas in October

christmas in october Advent candles in October? Wait a minute? Christmas is still 2 1/2 months away!

Now I know it is just the beginning of October, but given the fact that mail to our sponsored children can take 2 to 3 months, now is the time to find and pin some creative Christmas items to make and send to our sponsored children this year.

Print out these Bible verse ornaments [3] on card stock for your sponsored child. To make them a little more durable, laminate them or cover them with clear contact paper.

Get your kids and family involved with this one! Have different family members use their hand print [4] for the camels. Just make sure your paper is no longer than 8 1/2 by 11 inches.

How about a few questions to ask your sponsored child about Christmas?
