Missions Box Monday: Caring for Elderly


 
There are lots of things your kids can do to share comfort with the elderly...
~Make lap blankets (quilts, crochet, fleece, or knitted)
~Knit socks.
~Write a note or make a card and include comforting scripture. Decorate the edges with flowers or form art.
~Add special homemade things like pictures, watercolors, felted gifts, or embroidered pillows. Put your pictures on a piece of construction paper for a frame.
~Put in a gift of a wreath or a garland from finger knitting and attach a gift tag.
~Embroider a scripture for a pillow or throw.

This is just the sweetest thing. I would love to receive one of these gifts and I'm not even elderly (yet :P) What a great project.
