3 Ways Kids Can Give Back During the Holidays

3 Ways Kids Can Give Back During the Holidays

The holidays are a time to spend with family, enjoy delicious meals and celebrate one another. This season, you and your little ones can help out in your community to spread joy to those that need it most. Here are three ways kids can give back during the holidays:

Volunteer: There are so many ways you and your youngsters can volunteer! You can serve food at a soup kitchen or take cookies to a nursing home, the possibilities are endless. This is a great way to make people smile that deserve love, affection and some yummy food!

Give thanks: Kiddos can write letters to family members telling them how much they love them. Your family can also give thanks by sending care packages to troops overseas to salute their efforts and hard work.

Donate: Your children can pick out presents to donate to Toys for Tots for kids less fortunate in your area. Explain to your youngsters that not everyone is fortunate enough to celebrate the holidays, which is why it’s important to be generous and share the joy of the holidays with others.

How will your family give back this year?
