In "Wonderful Welcome," a Tapestry of Faith program
Tell the children they will make cards to sell. The proceeds will be donated to the congregation. If you have chosen a committee or project to receive the donation, tell the group about it now. If the children will decide on the recipient, facilitate that process now.
Invite the children to create designs on the outside of the card only. Explain that people who buy the cards will need the inside to write on.
If you have invited a congregational committee member to visit the group, engage them in making cards with the children as they talk about how their committee spends its funds. The committee might also help the group sell the greeting cards.
Decide as a group how much to charge for the cards. It will be important to steer the conversation so the amount is fair, not unreasonably high or low.

This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations.
