Well, the Gratitude & Service Lunchbox Challenge was a good experience for our family! There were definitely a lot of “I forgot”s and “whoops, I didn’t do it”s but we kept plugging along and we did have a few awesome things come of it. One day Oldest came home and said that “charlie” had been bullying someone on the playground and made them cry. He went over to see if they were OK and then invited them to play with him. Hurray! So hey, I’m gonna chalk that up as a win. If you did the lunchbox challenge with your kids I would love to hear about it! You can comment below or use #partylikeacherry on instagram.
So when thinking of something I could do for the Light the World campaign from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints I thought another Lunchbox challenge would be fun. It’s a little different, however, because these challenge cards span every day (including weekends!) in December through Christmas. So on non-school days you can set it at your child’s breakfast plate or on their pillow or just hang it on the fridge.
I tried, again, to make most of these “independent” activities. But some of them will take a bit of guidance or assistance from a parent. One day your child is asked to share a pass along card and on another day a snack, so make sure to include those things in their lunches!
Each day is assigned a scripture from Christ’s teachings. Then using that scripture as inspiration I tried to think of something that your child could do. Most of them they can complete while at school, but some will have to be done at home. If you have cardstock that would be good (but not necessary) for these challenge cards. Just print them, cut them, put them in your child’s lunch each morning, and try to think about others as a family this month 🙂 Plus there are blank cards available as well in case one of the challenges doesn’t work for your family you can come up with your own.
The Light the World campaign is a tool to help us be more Christ-like during the Christmas season. I hope that you find these free printables valuable in achieving that goal this season!
Please let me know how it goes with you and your family! You can comment here, or use #partylikeacherry on instagram.
