Creative Play Challenge Day 10: Give the Gift of Giving!

Posted by   + Show Post

Have your children go through their entire toy inventory and designate a pile to give away to those in need. Personally work with your child to identify the charity you will donate to. The more your children give to others, the less focused they will be on what they personally receive!

What toy or toys did you child choose to donate?

I do a lot of work with the salvation army so usually twice a year we go through his toys and give them to kids that need them.

We always do this before Christmas and birthdays! It used to me really tough for my oldest but now at 5 he does great and leads a great example for his younger siblings too!

we did our clea out about a month ago, but we got rid of 6 big black trash bags of stuff from both boys.. it was fun finding things they forgot about and nice to see some empty space again in their room.

That is exactly what we do. Every few months me and logan sit in his floor we go through all his little bins and bigger bins and collect what he doesn't need or want anymore.We donate to a local pantry. He knows and understands that its going to children who maybe dont have as many toys as he does. 

Logan has a wonderful big heart he loves giving and helping!
