Growing in God’s Garden Follow these steps: 1. You’ll need one medium-size, flat coin envelope (available at discount and office supply stores) for each child. 2. Take a photo of each child in your nursery, and then create personalized seed packets, with how-to-grow instructions. 3. Trim each photo and glue it to the lower two-thirds of a coin envelope. 4. Write the child’s name across the top of each envelope where the name of a plant would usually appear. 5. On the back of the envelopes add labels that say: “Care Instructions: Needs a lot of sunshine, hugs, and love, ‘for they are transplanted to the Lord’s own house. They flourish in the courts of our God. Even in old age; they will still produce fruit; they will remain vital and green’ (Psalm 92:13).” Kristy Coughlin Los Angeles, California Looking for even more great ideas for Mother’s Day?
