Think About it Thursday:Summer Service Projects For Kids!
With so much that has occurred in our World this year in the realm of disaster from the Earthquakes in Haiti to the Tsunami and Earthquakes of Japan I have seriously been considering having my children get actively involved. Both tragedies effect family and friends we know. At first I was not sure how to get such young children involved in service but I then I just had to think about what they can do instead of what they can't do. I feel like we should rotate a new project every two weeks to give them a broad prospective on service so maybe when they get a little older they can choose one summer service project for themselves.
So here are some of the things we were going to try and work on this Summer:
Volunteer at a Church Food Pantry
Volunteer at Soup Kitchen(maybe just my oldest cause my other two wont be able to work with the food)
Make Hygiene Kits for Homeless and Disaster Victims using coupons(been watching that Extreme Couponing show in TLC. Its got me a little excited. LOL!)
Join a Community Garden or CSA that helps turn empty lots into something beautiful
Book Drive for Children's Home
Have any of you guys done service projects with your children. I would love to hear what kind of things you guys have done. Please comment!
