SS Promotion

My husband and I teach the 1st-3rd grade Sunday School class at our church.  In order to encourage the kids to memorize the Bible, listen and answer questions we put together a special incentive contest.  
For this contest, each child has a wallet with their name on it and in class they have an opportunity to earn "Bible Bucks" (dollar store play money) to put in their wallet.  

They are many different ways to earn bucks and if they are diligent each child should have a full wallet by the end of the contest.  At the end of the promotion we will have a special store for them to spend their hard earned Bible Bucks. 

To make the wallets I used an envelope template and cut it on my Cricut.   The SVG template is found here.  I adjusted the dimensions in Make the Cut so the "dollars" would fit in the wallets.  They are cut out of heavy card stock, so hopefully they will hold up throughout the promotion.





To put each envelope together, I used double-stick tape on the seams and attached a piece of velcro for a closure.




Our Sunday School kids are super excited about this new contest and have been on their best behavior!  ;)

    I'm a grown-up and I wish I could use your wallets!

    Hmmm...I'm thinking now, what ideas can I come up with for these wallets?

  3. Just a thought...I think the envelopes could be a cute different way to do Dave Ramsey's "Envelope System"! I might just have to try it.
