Kids can make an over-sized tea bag to hold a gift of kindness for a family friend. Fold a sheet of white tissue paper into thirds so that you have a long strip. Fold the strip in half. Drop a tea bag, a packet of sugar or honey, and a plastic spoon down inside. Fold the tops of the teabag over to form a point and staple shut (see picture). Staple a string to the top of the newly assembled oversized tea bag. On the opposite end of the string, attach a cardstock tag that says, “You are a TEA-RIFFIC friend!” on one side and “from the ‘ Your Last Name’s” on the other side. Encourage them to work with their parents to decide on an adult friend of the family that might like a kind note. Discuss how friends of your family are loved by everyone in the family. Find Bible stories about how a close friend loves you and even loves your family!
