You are a creative person – that’s how God made you. Put it to work as you consider the resources you already have on hand for little to no money. You’ll be surprised how much God has already blessed you with if you’ll just do a little extra work, investigation and have enough humility to ASK. Here you go:

  • The church craft/supply closet
  • The internet
  • The church kitchen
  • Your garage
  • Free stuff on craigslist
  • Relationships with other KidMins
  • Your own children’s toy-boxes and closets
  • The local library
  • That retired Sunday School teacher in your church
  • Your external hard-drive and/or the hard-drive on your computer
  • Local businesses (They’re always giving stuff away)
  • Business owners in your church (They’re looking for a tax write-off)
  • Family members

For a little cash:

  • Garage sale
  • Salvation Army
  • Goodwill
  • Pawn shops
  • Second hand stores
  • Dollar-type-stores
  • The internet
  • Craigslist
  • Surplus stores
  • Going out of business sales (everything from their merchandise to the store fixtures)
  • Churches closing (sad but true)
  • The dollar sections and clearance sections of larger retail/dept. stores
