Chain of Service

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.

It was a challenge to come up with 25 different services they could help with but we managed. Some of my favorites are:
  • 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
Fingers-crossed that this is a small step in character building.
