For each Care Kit, have kids create a stocking out of felt. Use colors other than red and green to give your stockings a unique quality. For instance, use pink for newborn girls and blue for newborn boys.

With adults supervision: Using a glue gun, connect two felt cutouts of stockings. Have kids use craft glue to attach a white cuff around the top of the stockings and write a Scripture reference or blessing on it with puffy paint. Set aside the stocking to dry.

You can fill stockings with goodies appropriate to their recipients. For instance, stuff a newborn’s stocking with washcloths, a sample body wash, socks, and a small toy. Stuff a volunteer’s stocking with a candy bar, a personalized notepad or calendar, a gift pen, and a T-shirt.
