Sunday 'Cans'

(49 reviews) Write a Review

I don't know about the rest of you, but when I get home from church I feel like collapsing and not waking up for at least 2 hours.  But, that usually doesn't happen for me.  I find that I'm terribly grumpy unless I have an action plan.  My kids need me to be a leader and teach them how to use time wisely, especially on Sunday's.

Now the Lord kind of feels strongly about keeping the Sabbath Day Holy.  It really isn't too much to ask of us is it.  One day in the week that we set aside to worship, relax, bond, pray, study, serve,  learn, etc.  Those things sound really nice but how much do they really happen?  I for one need to be more deliberate in my Sabbath Day worship and activities.

Anywho, there is a lot of Thou Shalt Not's on the Sabbath Day, so I like the approach of the Sunday 'cans' to show just how much we Can do on Sunday's.  So many ways to show our Heavenly Father that we are willing to dedicate one day to Him completely.  He is happy when we are strengthening others and lifting our families and spending time on things of a better. 

From start to finish it took about 1 hour.  1 hour investment for several hours worth of activities.  Good trade.

    I actually love these and have used them with my grand-kids when they are here at me home. I also printed my own using the blank template and use those for my CTR Sunday School class.

    Our Activity Day girls loved making these. Hopefully it will help them know what to do after church.
    Thanks so much for this idea.

    Such a time saver

    Posted by Aliza B on 9th Apr 2015

    We used this printout for an Activity Days activity. It would have taken me hours to print out these ideas and format it myself. This saved me time and a lot of grumbling at my computer. We are going to use this for an FHE activity too.

    Fun Activity Days Activity!

    Posted by Natalie C. on 9th Mar 2015

    I used this for our Activity Days girls. They loved all the different ideas, as well as being able to put them all together. I underestimated how long it would take, but they still had fun. Got so many "thank you"s from moms!

    Thank you for this awesome printable!

    Posted by Ginny on 19th Feb 2015

    My kids helped me to assemble our Sunday "Cans," and then spent the rest of the day pulling ideas out of the can and putting them into action. (I even got a nap!) Great idea and nice quality printable.
