Yeah right, me too ~ in our dreams! :)  Anyway, if you are chatting to your sponsored child about summer, make sure you check out these FREE summer colouring pages, puzzles, posters, bookmarks, crafts and creative ideas for kids…

He came to Earth, lived, died on the cross, and rose from the dead, all because He loves you. If you ever feel lonely, or afraid, or lost, or sad, or like you’re not special, remember that you have Someone who loves you so much He even gave His life for you! And remember—just like the Ark reminds us of how God saved Noah from physical death, the cross reminds us that God provides a way to be saved from eternal death.

LOOKING FOR SOMETHING DIFFERENT?

Take some photos of your family having fun with ‘chalk scenes’ and then send them to your Compassion child (too bad we can’t send them some chalk. What fun they would have with this); this is a FABULOUS idea!

These hilarious hard-boiled snorkelling dudes made me smile when I first saw them. They come fully equipped for a dive in the ocean with their own flippers, snorkels (a drinking straw!) and scuba tanks. This craft is worth doing with your own family and sending the photo – or just send this photo – for a laugh! It will be sure to brighten your Compassion child’s day.

Upload your text or Bible verse into a word cloud generator and put it into a summer shape template (e.g. ice cream, beach umbrella, surfboard, beach hut, beach ball or this cute summer beach fun stencil) and choose bright happy summer colours for your creative summer fun; free printable
