LIFE APP:  
GENEROSITY – Making someone's day by giving something away
DO THIS:

 MORNING TIME


This month is all about generosity and your child will be given so many opportunities to practice this life app. Every time you see them carry out a generous action, write it on a note and hang it on their mirror. Affirming your child will empower them to keep going!
 

 MEAL TIME


Q & A for kids: Do you find it easier to give away things or your time?
Q & A for parents: What was your favorite gift you received as a child?

 

 DRIVE TIME


Tell your children to be on the lookout for paying it forward! Explain that when you all choose to go through a drive through for a meal, you can pay for the person's meal behind you. Encourage each family member to contribute in this game with their own money. As a family you each are making someone's day by giving something away all month long!
 

 BED TIME


Read Luke 2:1-18. God sent Jesus for each one of us as the most incredible gift ever. He lived on earth, among us, as a human and experienced all the tough stuff we do. Then, He gave His life to pay the price for the wrong things we’ve done. Because of that, we can live forever with God. Pray for each other. Ask God to help you see His amazing gift for you in Jesus every single day.
