Decorate Envelopes


3 envelopes per child



Provide art supplies and three envelopes for each child. On the first envelope, print 1. GIVE and explain that the first thing we do with the money God gives us is give part of it back to God. On the second envelope, print 2. SAVE and explain that the next thing to do with our money is save some of it for important expenses. On the third envelope, print 3. SPEND and explain that the last thing we do with our money is spend it on what we need or want. Invite children to decorate their envelopes with pictures to help them remember what each envelope is for. Give each child several coins to practice with. Contact parents during the week, suggesting they help their child sort any money he or she receives into the envelopes as a first lesson in budgeting.


Activity Takeaway

Jesus saw how much people worried about what they had or didn’t have. Jesus taught people not to worry. He said, “Seek God’s kingdom. God will give you what you need.” Jesus told His disciples to give to the poor, and they will store up treasure in heaven. We can give cheerfully and trust God to give us everything we need!
