This year i really want to make an effort to teach my children about community and how to give to others etc etc. Of course, i try to teach them these things all the time but the cold winter months are when most seem to be the most needy. I'm looking for ideas on how to involve my young children in my efforts. (4 & 5)
This is kind of what i have in mind already:
We will spend some time at the homeless shelter. I'm not sure EXACTLY what we'll be doing. But we will be there to help.
I would like to something for the senior citizens in nursing homes. Again, i'm not sure what. But i really want it to mean something to them. Or even just ONE or TWO of them.
Also, i will be taking my children to a local book store. We will each pick out a book and then donate it to our local library.
What other things can we do? or can you add something to the ideas i already have? Thanks
