Prizes for Sunday School


 

 

After toying with the issue of prizes, materialism, and of course, my own kids coming home with stuff that just makes their rooms messier, I realized that prizes really are a great teaching tool. But only when done right! Here are my top five tips for succsesful Sunday School prizes.

1) The kids must want it!

Kids are so proud when they have worked hard and earned something exciting. Put up a chart so each kid can watch as they get closer to their goal, and make sure they know that the prize is a little symbol of the greater prize that is knowing God better. You can’t lose, when you let kids win!
