5 Community Service Projects for Kids

Feb24

We understand that sometimes it can be hard to make time to give back to our communities. But getting your kids involved in community service projects and activities can teach them valuable skills and life lessons like compassion, respect, and empathy. To get your family inspired, here are 5 ways to teach your kids to serve their communities.

1.  Bake cookies or brownies for your local fire station.  The firemen will really appreciate this simple but delicious gift, and it’s a fun way to teach your kids how to help out your community and thank local heros.

2.  Volunteer to be a foster family for a pet from your local animal shelter.  Taking care of a pet is a big learning opportunity for children. It teaches them responsibility and kindness to those who can’t take care of themselves.  Adoption also helps to keep strays off the street.

3.  Pick up trash at your local creek. Creeks and rivers are something we all share.  Teach your children to show respect for public property.  Even little kids can help clean up your city streams.  Look up a local Creek Week association near you:  http://www.creekweek.net/

4.  Volunteer to take your neighbors’ dogs for a walk.  Do it for free!  This can really help busy neighbors or older folks who can’t walk their dogs.  Your kids will learn how to take care of animals, respect public property (like sidewalks and dog parks), and help others.

5.  Make care packages for homeless people.  Fill bags with some hand sanitizer, tissues, a granola bar, etc. and hand them out to people in need that you pass on the street.  This simple act of kindness can encourage your children to be compassionate towards others.

4 Ways to Show Your Family You Love Them

Feb07

With Valentine’s Day coming up, you’re probably thinking about what you can do for your family. Here are four simple ideas to get your creative juices flowing:

1. Spend time with your family.
This may seem obvious, but it’s important. Go on a walk, go to the park, read to your kids, play games together — these are all easy ways to spend time with your children.

2. Visit a relative you don’t see much.
It can be really encouraging when you visit an elderly relative, or just someone you don’t see much. Invite them over for lunch or bring them a plate of cookies.

3. Do something special with or for your family.
This can include cooking a special dinner, going out to do something fun together, or staying home and having a family game night. A special treat like this can help break up the monotony of everyday life.

4. Send them a love note.
A quick note on a post-it in your kid’s lunch box, or in your spouse’s car is a sweet way to say “I love you” and show your family you love them.
