Diapers of Cheer

Diaper Cheer

He put a child in the middle of the room. Then, cradling the little one in his arms, he said, “Whoever embraces one of these children as I do embraces me, and far more than me—God who sent me.” Mark 9:36-37, The Message

Serve: new parents and babies

Connect: it’s a dirty job to change diapers but it is one way parents care for babies who aren’t able to use the toilet; help children see that even the dirtiest job (no one likes poop!) can be an act of love

Materials:

  • size 1 diapers
  • sharpie markers (NO washable markers)

Directions

  • give each child several diapers and sharpie markers
  • encourage children to think about happy or funny images to draw on the diapers
  • allow children to write include “clean” with the punchline on the back

Go Further: have children host a diaper and wipes drive to supply a local food pantry or shelter with these needed supplies
