I’ve been wanting to do something for the neighbours for Christmas this year, since it’s the first time we’ve really HAD neighbours. Something that I could involve the kids in so that they could have a bit of a lesson in how important it is to serve others, not just expect things for ourselves this time of year. Since I love cookies (and so do my kids), I thought Hey! Why not make some Christmas cookies for the neighbours? Then we can go out as a family and the kids can give away the goodies.
Works for me! Just gotta make sure I make enough cookies with the kids to have some left for us.
As Christians, we feel it important to celebrate the holiday in a way that emphasizes the true meaning; Christ’s birth. I don’t want to push our faith onto our neighbours, but want to stand out so they know what we believe in from our actions.
So, I made these little cards to attach to the bags of cookies. Can’t wait to get baking!
