Christmas Outreach: Stocking Care Kits

This is a great way to reach out to children: Christmas Outreach: Stocking Care Kits.

Age Level: 6 to 12

Materials: Assorted colors of felt, scissors, hot glue, a glue gun, craft glue, puffy paint, and gift ingredients

Time: About 30 minutes

Give these unique Care Kits to members of your community this Christmas. Recipients might include newborns, those in the hospital, those less fortunate, veterans, grandparents, or volunteers.

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.
