Ideas for Mother's Day

Churches often donate to pregnancy care centers for Mother’s Day. This year, give your kids a chance to minister to new moms with these easy ideas:

Fill A Basket For A Mom In Need
Have kids bring items for a “new mom” basket your church can take to a local center. Baby clothes, diapers, wipes, blankets, and bibs are big blessings. What a great way to let kids to reach out to your community while laying a foundation of godly respect for life in their hearts.

Suggested items: baby clothes, diapers, wipes, small toys/stuffed animals, lotion gifts for mom, books, notebook/journal, picture frame, blankets, bibs, gift cards

Make Your Basket More Personal
Let each child make a card to go in the basket, congratulating the new mother. Be sure to include your church information. Click here to download FREE “Congratulations” card. You can also give extras to the pregnancy care center to slip in future baskets as an invitation to your church.

Book Drive
Need a more economic choice for your kids? Ask each child to bring in a book or two of their own, used books (in good condition, of course). Centers often use these as incentives or rewards for program participation, or they can also be included in the baskets for new moms.

Diaper Drive
Last but not least, there's always the tried-and-true diaper drive! Ask kids to donate diapers and wipes. Be creative - challenge them to build a pyramid of wipes five feet high or five diaper wreaths.
