When it comes to handing down confident faith to my grandsons, I of course talk with them about why they are able to know God is real and trust His Word with confidence. I help them learn to talk with God and model what it looks like to love, know and walk with God. All important, essential parts of handing down confident faith. But, there are also times where I plan something simple and fun to help them learn to show their faith by showing love and appreciation to others.Last year, and each previous year for the past few years, we worked on making 60 simple, fun snowman ornaments for the boys to give to the Wednesday night Children's Ministry volunteers at our church. (This year with covid, the mid-week and Sunday ministries to children have been on hold.) I want my grandsons to be quick to appreciate those who help them - especially those who volunteer their time to do so. Making the ornaments was a simple and fun way for them to do this.
If you would like to help your grandchildren make these ornaments for the volunteers at your church or neighbors, teachers at school, local firefighters or police or shut ins, you will need the following . . .
