It’s the most wonderful time of the year…for giving! We elves love to give presents to each other and help Santa give presents to people all over the world! What makes our tinsel tingle the most though is giving presents of kindness and love!

While the boss in the red suit won’t deliver presents until December 24th…moms, dads, grandparents, and everyone in between are busy shopping for Christmas presents this month! Holiday shopping has become a lot easier now that presents can be ordered online and delivered straight to your door! Delivery personnel do their very best to deliver packages on time for the holidays and this is the busiest time of the year for them. They spend long hours in their trucks/vans going door to door every day to make sure gifts are delivered on time. It is quite possibly one of the most thankless jobs, as they rarely see the people they are delivering to! This month we’re encouraging you to show how thankful you are for all of the delivery men and women this holiday season. It’s the perfect way to give back, show your appreciation, and spread some holiday cheer! 

Check out this awesome video of a delivery man showing his excitement after finding treats! It’s all the encouragement you need to get started! 

Items Needed

  • Snacks – ex: goldfish, fruit snacks, granola bars, chips, candy bars, trail mix
  • Drinks – ex: water, soda, juice
  • Piece of paper
  • Marker
  • Tape
  • Box (cardboard or other)

How To Participate: 

Using your marker, write on your piece of paper “USPS, Amazon, FedEx, UPS delivery men and women! Thank you for making holiday shopping easy! Please enjoy some treats on your route today! Happy Holidays!” 

Tape your piece of paper to your cardboard box. Fill your box with your treats and place in the area where your packages are delivered. 

Reflection Questions

How do you think the delivery men and women will feel when they get their box of goodies?
