Scripture Themed Missionary Christmas Gifts

 
My mom is the best missionary mom ever! She made these for my little brother and sister who are on missions right now and I thought it was such a great idea I just had to share!
 
Poem:
 
With each present we’ve attached
A scripture as a clue.
So look them up, and try to guess
What’s wrapped inside for you.
We hope you like the things we’ve sent
And think we are real clever.
Because we want to wish for you
The Merriest Christmas ever!
 

She did green tags for my missionary and yellow for their companions so that they could see who guesses what’s in the package correctly.  You could even do a bonus gift for the one that gets the most right!Scriptures and Presents:

  1. I think these are great. So much fun. For missionaries that are far away and it is really expensive to send too much, we have done individual scripture references on starbursts. That is always fun!

  2. I did this my daughter (Ogden Utah Spanish speaking) and for our missionaries here and we are stumped on the balloons scripture.. We were hoping for some help on this one.. :). They all LOVED it, thanks so much for the idea !
