Every year my wife and I host a Christmas party for our adult volunteers in the youth ministry. This is just one way that we try to make our volunteers feel appreciated for all that they do. I also get them a gift every year with the youth group logo on it, and in the past I also got a silly gift for each of the them as well. We would often play a fun game to see which silly gift each of the them received. This year I got them something different in place of the silly gift.
A few weeks before the party I gave a bunch of our students a paper with all of the adult sponsors names on them. I asked the students to write down as many words as they could think of to describe that adult leader. I then compiled the lists and made a word cloud using http://www.wordle.net for each adult leader. I then added the leaders name, printed them out, and framed it. When I gave them out to the adults many of them got teary-eyed. These were very meaningful for our adult leaders, and gave them a taste of the impact that they are making in the students’ lives.
For mine I used http://www.wordle.net for the word cloud. I have also heard that http://www.tagxedo.com is good too, and you can create the shapes of the word clouds yourself. However, I have not used this site myself so I do not know from personal experience.
