The material in Bundles of Faith and Tons of Fun: Easy Activities, Prayers, and Projects for Children is suitable for pre-school to middle-school age.  The ideas are easy to use and adapt to any religious education setting in school, parish, or home. The materials required for specific lessons and activities are close at hand, and preparation time is minimal. This is a perfect resource to enhance and supplement any religious education curriculum and any course.  In each idea, Mathson emphasizes how Jesus is present. Children are able to recognize in their work, prayer, and sharing, how Jesus is truly with them. Prayer chains, pantomimes, giving trees, May Day crownings, and holiday adventures are all part of the creative offering which are truly tons of fun as they share bundles of faith with the children.
