Outreach Ideas for KIDS
This type of servanthood evangelism inspires kids to think like Jesus. Gather your rakes and off you go!
Have a local sports figure to offer a clinic for your kids. Ask a local grocery for free drinks
Have kids bring their favorite table games. Hold a tournament and give prizes
Invite a local artists to teach art basics
Take your puppet team to the city park and hold a sidewalk circus. You can also have circus-type acts, clowns, and balloons. Invite visiting children to come to your church
Deliver free pumpkins
Kids ring a doorbell (with a grown up, of course) and offer someone a free pumpkin
Have kids bring their own instruments for a band. Have a kazoo marching band
Teach about reuse, reduce, and recycle. Have kids plant trees in your community
Coordinate a paper drive
Communicate the ecology message from the standpoint that God created the world and gave us authority over it
Supply kite-making materials. Serve families pizza or hot dogs for lunch
Honor friends by having children give their guests a helium balloon
Use simple, pictorial recipes and pre-measure all ingredients. After the cookie party, have kids seal the extra cookies in plastic bags. Take children to give the cookies to a shut-in, nursing home resident, or sick child.
Host a petting zoo
Parade of your favorite stuffed animals? Maybe a live pet show?
Go to the zoo, a children's museum, or a farm. Hold a day camp with planned activities such as crafts, cooking, games, and stories.
Get an address list of unchurched preschoolers by asking young mothers for names of unchurched mothers of preschoolers they know. On the Saturday before preschoolers are promoted to their new Sunday school class, invite churched and unchurched preschoolers and their parents to Promotion Sunday. Have them come to their new Sunday school departments, meet their new teachers, and see what they'll be doing. Serve refreshments and give each child a school box and pencil.
