I sponsor a four year old boy too!! I too find it challenging to figure out what to write to him. But, one thing I always remember is that the letters and encouragement will change his life!

You can write to your child about anything, really. Here are some ideas I have-

Your church-
Is it big or small?
What is your pastor's name?
Do you teach in Sunday school?
What did you learn this week? (perhaps in simpler terms though)
You can share a picture of your church, your pastor, or you and some church friends.
Also, Bible coloring pages could be sent.

Your family-
How many people are in your family?
What do they like to do?
How old are they and what are their names?
What do you like most about your family?
What is your favorite family memory?
Share a picture(s) of your family.
You can include coloring sheets representing things your family likes to do/

Your favorites-
What is your favorite color?
What is your favorite animal? Why?
What is your favorite place (church, the garden, etc.)? Why?
What is your favorite Bible story or verse? Why?
What is your favorite season? Why?
What is your favorite thing to do?
You can share photos of your favorite things (not like material things such as a car or your house, but photos of your community or seasons)
You can also include coloring pages of your favorite things.

About yourself-
What is your birthday?
Who is your best friend(s)?
Do you work? If so, what do you do?
What do you do in your free time? Why do you like it?
What are the seasons like near you?
Where do you live (state and country, not specifics)?
Do you live in a city or in the country?
What is your town like?
You could also share some about your family or some of your favorites.
Share photos of yourself, your friends, and where you live.
Include coloring pages that show things you like or that are near you.

When I was your age...-
What did you like to do?
What was your family like?
Who were your friends?
Did you go to school/preschool? What did you like about it? What didn't you like?
What was Sunday school like (if you went)?
What were your chores?
Share a picture of yourself when you were that age.
Include coloring pages of little kids.

Bible story-
Where can the child find the Bible story?
What is the Bible story about? (share it in your own words)
What can you learn from the Bible story (trusting God, God protects, etc)?
When was the first time you heard the Bible story? What did you think of it then?
When was the last time you heard the Bible story? Did you learn something new from it?
What do you like most about the Bible story?
How has this Bible story impacted your life? (Did it comfort you when you were scared or sad? Did it help you trust God more? etc)
Are you learning anything from the Bible story today?
Include coloring pages of that Bible story.

Well those are some ideas, but there are many more things you can write about (your job, your dreams, your community, your friends- the list is endless!) I hope you will be encouraged to write your little child! Your letters will change his/her life and encourage him/her soo much!

Blessings on your sponsorship!! :)
