I just came across a great idea on Pinterest and I had to share it.
It's called Blessing Bags.
I've been meaning to do something like this for a long time using hotel complimentary shampoo, conditioner, bar soap, etc. This blog has a list of things that I would have never thought of. Such as...
Gallon size Ziplock bags
items to go in the bags, such as:
packages of tissues
toothbrush and toothpaste
pack of gum
coins (could be used to make a phone call, or purchase a food item)
you could also put in a warm pair of socks, and maybe a Starbucks gift card
Assemble all the items in the bags, and maybe throw in a note of encouragement. Seal the bags and stow in your car for a moment of providence.
Putting these bags together would be a great thing to do with your kids, they can help and you can teach them compassion for others at the same time.
