Kindness/Missions Challenge

Think about It: What are five cool things about you? Tell someone and ask them to tell you what they think is cool about you..

Bake cookies for a neighbor:
Sometimes it is fun to surprise someone and just doing something nice for them. Today, you will bake cookies with help from an adult or big brother or sister. Just follow the directions on the package. You will need to add a couple of ingredients we weren’t able to include in the box. Once the cookies are baked and cooled, put a few of the cookies in the plastic bag that has been provided and deliver them to a neighbor. Share the rest of the cookies with your family. Take a picture of everyone enjoying the cookies and email the picture to the church at office@spencergumc.com.

Outdoor Activity- Beach Ball
It’s time to go outside for some beach ball fun! In your day one packet, you will find 6 different cards (2 – physical activity, 2 - conversation starters, 2 – kindness activities). Select a different card each time you play the game. You can play this game through out the week of VBS and long after VBS is over.
Toss the beach ball back and forth with another person (or toss it up in the air and catch it). After you have played catch for a while, throw the ball one last time and notice the number on the ball that is closest to where your right-hand thumb is pointing. Read and do the activity or answer the question that relates to that number on the card. Feel free to repeat as long as you’d like.

Prayer Cube
Prayer is simply a time to talk with God. In your packet of materials, we have included 3 different sheets to make prayer cubes. (We encourage you and your family to cut out each of the prayer cubes and follow the instructions to put them together.) Your family may already pray before meals or before you go to bed. We want to encourage you and your family to use these prayer cubes each day. It will help you learn to pray and give you things to talk about with God.

Kindness Poster
We have included an Acts of Kindness poster for you to work on throughout the week. You will learn about some of the ways Jesus was kind, discover different ways you can be kind, and consider how you feel when you are kind to others. Color in the pictures and hang it in your room as a reminder to follow Jesus and treat others as you would want to be treated.

Kindness & Mission Challenge:

Think about It:
Make kindness a part of your summer. Share pictures and stories with others in the church by sending them to office@spencergumc.com

Flower Petals:
This week, you have learned about what it means to be kind. Cut out the water-ing can, flowers, stems & leaves, and message. Glue the water can, etc. to white poster board. Leave the flowers/petals loose so you can use them to do kind things around the house.

We encourage you to continue to learn about Jesus, try to be like Him, and make being kind a part of who you are. Now that VBS is over, we wanted to give you an opportunity to win some-thing just for being nice. When a parent notices you doing something nice for others, they may give you a kindness coin. When you have collected 10 kindness coins, you can bring them into the church office and collect a prize. When you do nice things for other people, it makes them feel good and it makes you feel good too.

Outdoor Activity:
Beach Ball AND Prayer Cube – these are activities you can use with friends & family after VBS is over


Kindness Poster: 
hopefully you’ve gotten your kindness poster finished up and will hang it where it’ll be a great reminder to be kind.


We have included a short survey in your Day Five materials.
Please complete the survey and put it in the mail. We appreciate your feedback!!
