Random act of kindness
Get the kids involved and show someone a random act
of kindness. Pay for the person behind you in line at the
coffee shop, take cookies to your neighbors, volunteer at a
homeless shelter, visit with seniors at a nursing home, or
collect coats and hats for those in need. Pick a cause that
is near and dear to your family’s hearts and do something
that would benefit that charity.
Show some heart
Consider contacting a local children’s hospital and
making goodie bags for kids and families who are admitted.
Most hospitals will have a list of things they need but
they could include books, art supplies, blankets, or stuffed
animals for kids and chapstick, magazines, playing cards,
and travel size toiletries for parents. Get the kids involved
in gathering the items and delivering them to the hospital.
