Most of the kids nowadays would look at christianity, or religion in general, as a really boring concept since people only pray and stay quiet, kneel down when the priest says so, or sing songs of praise and love for Jesus Christ, and they never really thought it was something other than those mentioned. Adults know too well that christianity is not only about being in church and doing activities in the church, we all know that there is more to christianity than just serving the Lord on Sundays, but we cannot blame the kids for thinking otherwise. Parents should always make sure that their kids do not only have their thoughts about christianity in that kind of sense, but make them understand as to how wide the concept of the religion is, as well as the values that the religion teaches them to have in life. Down below are a few activities that can be used for the kids to endeavor with in order for them to fully understand what their religion is all about without giving them a boring time with their friends.
Let the kids volunteer to help those who are homeless
It is very important for any Christian to be always there for those who need him, because one of the values that the church teaches is to help those who need help, which is why it can be an educating experience to have your children learn to care about the less fortunate. A lot of homeless shelters have been scattered all over the country, and they are usually acknowledged by most of the other more fortunate people during those seasons all over the year. If you take your children with you to these volunteer programs, they will have a firsthand experience of what it is like to like the christian way and they can learn well through these circumstances. But it will also be nice if they also know that there is more to christianity and their faith than just helping those less fortunate and giving food to those who are hungry. Some other things that volunteers do for the needy are:
They meet the people in need and greet them in a really nice way.
Helping prepare the meals for those people who are hungry.
Serving them to those who want food for their stomachs.
Helping out with the cleaning of the plates the hungry have used to eat on.
All those other cleaning duties that need to be done right after the whole program has been finished.
An activity that will need them to make use of christmas scavenger hunt clues to have fun with their other friends and relatives.
