Family Activity: Thank You Cards

WHAT YOU NEED: paper, crayons or markers, stickers or other craft materials


  • Before the Activity: Talk to your child about the community helpers (nurses, firefighters, mail carriers, etc.) that help us every day. Encourage them to color or decorate a thank you card to some community helpers in your neighborhood. 
  • After the Activity: Talk about how God made us to help others, just like community helpers. Then deliver them to each person your child made one for.


  • Before the Activity: “Can you name some community helpers? A community helper is someone who helps us each day, like a nurse. What does a nurse do? (Pause.) Yes, nurses work in doctor’s offices or hospitals, and they take care of us when we’re sick. There are so many people who help us.”
  • During the Activity: “Let’s thank the helpers by making some thank you cards for them! You can draw pictures, add stickers, or whatever you choose.I know these will make our community helpers feel loved and appreciated.”
  • After the Activity: “I’m so glad for the people who help us like nurses, firefighters, and mail carriers! But they aren’t the only ones who can help. God made me and you to help others too! Who made you to help others?” (God made me to help others.)
