Blessing Jar

Have slips of paper and a jar for your ladies to write blessings on and place in jar.  Read them periodically throughout your event.

Sew on the Button

Who can sew on so many buttons (perhaps 5) the fastest.

You Will Need: fabric pieces, buttons, needles, and thread--maybe needle threaders:) 

Button Count

Fill a jar with buttons and have everyone guess the number and give the one closest to the correct answer a prize. 

Discussion Starters: 

  • Give everyone a different type of button. Let each describe something different about their button (or something similar)

    Relate it to how everyone is different (and some the same in areas) in the body of Christ but works together.

  • Discussion Starter Question: (blessings)

    What Does the word "blessing" mean to you?

  • Discussion Starter Question: (bows)

    What is the best gift you ever received from someone?

    Relate it to God's Greatest Gift to us and our blessings.
