Devotional Diapers

Moms are busy and can find it difficult to spend a lot of time in the Word, so why not bring the Word to them? With every diaper change they’ll get an encouraging message from God Himself!

Materials Needed:

  • 1 Large Basket
  • 2 packages of baby diapers (I used packages of 32)
  • Address Labels
  • A Bible
  • A Pen (or printer)
  1. As you can see above, I wrote out all all the Scripture verses on the address labels rather than typing and printing them. If you don’t have very neat handwriting, you’ll want to print your verses. I wrote out all the verses I used below. Feel free to use the same ones! You can also write encouraging messages on the address labels if you prefer.
  2. Next, stick one address label toward the top of each diaper and press down along the edges. (You may need to go along the edges a second time to be sure it sticks well).
  3. Arrange the devotional diapers in the large basket (as demonstrated below).
