Preparing: We made 9 dozen cookies to share with other families. We made these yummy cookies from my cousin's blog.
Learning: We read the story of Jesus Feeding the 5000 from the Children's New Testament. Then Andrew helped read a Sharing Pictostory from the Friend. We talked about how we feel when we share.
Storytelling: I shared the story of The Doorbell Rang by Pat Hutchens using flannel board characters and cookies that Ryan and I had made together. I used paper plates and we acted out the story by dividing the cookies up between the plates for each character.
Sharing: While we each ate a cookie, our family chose four other families to bring cookies to together that evening.
Singing: We sang Give Said the Little Stream as we drove around delivering the cookies.
Scripture Memorization: Acts 30:35 "It is more blessed to give than to receive." We memorized the scripture a we drove to deliver the cookies, too.
