One of the projects my daughters had to do in their first grade class this year was a special service project. Each child had to come up with an idea of a way to serve another individual or group and then do a poster presentation in front of their class.
Of course, my girls chose The Cupcake Kids!!
But here’s the really neat thing…even though our girls’ mom and dad have been doing this thing in Uganda for two years now and they’ve done gazillion of Cupcake Kids sales (even my 2 year old knows when I whip out the cupcake pans to say “Cupcake Kids”!), it wasn’t until this service project that the lightbulb really went on.
Here’s the comment their teacher emailed me last night: Just a quick note to tell you that Brooke and Taylor each did a great job yesterday sharing about how they have been serving God and orphaned children of Uganda. The other children really enjoyed the cupcake shape of Taylor’s display and the cupcake background of Brooke’s display. They both provided a very good explanation of how the money that they earned would provide the children with the chance to eat healthy food instead of posho and to sleep on clean mattresses instead of ones that were bug infested. They both seemed very proud of their displays and super excited about presenting which was very sweet to see.
I’ll let their projects speak for themselves…..(taken directly from their poster project)
“THE CUPCAKE KIDS”
by Taylor & Brooke Harty
We are making the cupcakes.
We are selling the cupcakes.
Instead of eating posho,
….these are their new mattresses!
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
