This is one of the most creative tracts I’ve ever seen. Seriously. When the review came up on the Homeschool Review Crew for Is There Anything Better Than Candy? Box-Tracts from Let The Little Children Come, I immediately thought that this would be a fun project to do with my kids. These are Halloween Tracts that can be used to share the gospel with children, or in the case of some kids like mine who talk constantly, for children to share the gospel with those around them.
My big kid has become quite an evangelist lately. He tells everyone that they need to “have Jesus erase their wrongs and be baptized so they can go to heaven to be with Jesus.” I thought this would be something he’s really get into.
My husband took him out for some one-on-one time last week and I got to spend the morning talking through the gospel with my preschooler.
We took a trip to the store for candy (we got a family sized bag of Hershey kisses, which ended up being a mistake because now they think it’s normal to get a piece of chocolate at every meal). Then we set out to put together this little pumpkin to take to Daddy. The pumpkins can hold a standard fun-sized candy bar, but we went for small because I knew my kids would want to each the rest of the bag.
What to do with the Is There Anything Better Than Candy? Box-Tracts?
We brought our sample to my husband when we were done. My husband had taken our big kid with him to work, and I needed to pick him up, so it made the trip more fun to bring a treat with us. My husband is a pastor and always on the hunt for creative ways to share the gospel. He saw this and immediately said, “Let’s order a bunch of those for our Fall Festival outreach.”
We have three different outreach events planned throughout September and October; these are perfect to give out to the younger visitors during those events!
- give these away for trick-or-treating on Halloween night or at a church trunk-or-treat event
- give out at a local nursing home
- bring to school for class Halloween party
- hand out to neighbors along with an invitation to church
Basically, walk through the gospel with your children, then have your children turn and share the gospel with those around them. The leaves on the pumpkin contain all the words they need to say to lead someone to Christ.
