I always keep a Sunshine Bucket in my office. The Sunshine Bucket is bright yellow and filled with all kinds of doo-dads (toys and trinkets from Oriental Trading, coupons for free kid’s meals and ice cream, stuff from the $ store). Whenever a child has something to celebrate (birthday, straight A’s, new baby sibling, etc.) they get to go to the Sunshine Bucket. Often adults in the church will bring in stuff to stock my bucket! And local fast food restaurants will donate coupons! The kids (and parents) love it!
