The best church bag would be one full of people interested in playing with my baby and entertaining him while I actually get something out of church. This is why women live close to their mothers!
It’s time for me to put together a good church bag. Snacks are something I feel like I have a handle on.
- Bean dip spread (which I swear I’ll post a recipe for soon) and a spoon
- Slices of cheese
- Whole wheat bread
- Dried mangoes
- Lots and lots of milk
- Sippy cup
It’s really important to me that we avoid processed foods like crackers and puffs (because we don’t like eating them anyway) and this has made it a little more difficult at times because it’s hard to find dry/non-messy things to feed him. If you have any great ideas I’d love to hear them!
Even more than that though, I’m interested to hear what quiet toys you are using to keep your kids entertained. I’d like to avoid branded things (no Disney characters please) but bible-specific toys aren’t required. I do have a Little Kiss I made with pages that look like this:
And I’d like to make him another with pictures of our family members so he can learn who everyone is.
But what else to add? I think if I were better prepared, I’d enjoy Sundays more. Right now they feel a bit like a crazy whirlwind that I just want to get through, and that’s not the attitude I want to have.
