Yesterday we made a paper chain as part of our "holiday decorating with what we have." I want my kids to know that this time of year shouldn't just be about receiving cool gifts but is also about helping others, so written inside each chain is a small service they can help with.
- Spend the morning at the local old folks home
- Give the dog a bath
- Write Great-Grandma a letter
- Donate toys to children who need them more than we do
- Bring food to the local food pantry
- Help with dishes
