Sunday Can

To make a Sunday Can for things you “Can” do on Sundays, you will need: a clean, empty can that has no sharp edges, construction paper, colored markers or crayons, tape, scissors, paper, and a pencil or pen.

  1. 1.

    Cut a piece of construction paper to fit around the outside of the can. Write the words “Sunday Can” on the paper, then decorate it using the markers or crayons. Wrap the paper around the can and tape into place.

  2. 2.

    Cut out the ideas for Sunday activities and put them into the Sunday Can. Write down any other appropriate Sunday activities that you can think of on separate pieces of paper and put them in also. If you can’t think of something to do before or after church on Sunday, pick an idea from your Sunday Can and do it.
