It’s that time of year when all little people start to make their Christmas wish list. Actually, I know some big people (ahem) who start making their Christmas wish lists too.
Have you ever thought about making a Christmas wish list for your preschool ministry? I bet there are families in your church who ask you if you need anything or if there’s anything they can do to help. And, I bet your answer is always, “I’ll let you know.” But, do you ever let them know? No, you don’t, because you don’t have time to think that far ahead. You’re just trying to get to Sunday!!
See, we get you. We really do.
Not only do we get you, we want to help you.
So, we created your Christmas wish list for you!!!
We looked through the coming months of curriculum, thought about things we ask for on a regular basis, and made a Christmas wish list on Pinterest. All you have to do is create your own Pinterest board and repin the items you need. You could even add items to your ministry’s Christmas wish list like construction paper and popsicle sticks. Add what YOU need. Then, direct your families who want to help to your board.
You know what else might be fun? Invite your families to put the ministry’s gifts under a specific tree in your environment. Then, if schedule and space permits, let the older kids watch their leaders open gifts.
Be sure to follow up with a thank you note when you get your gifts!
Oh, and friends. These wish lists don’t have to go away after Christmas. They can live on your Pinterest accounts all year long as a place for you to send people when they ask if you need anything. You always need something… right?
