The Holiday Spirit of Giving

DSC05171This time of year is a good time to reinforce the spirt of giving with your kids. We recently watched the movie A Christmas Carol where Ebenezer Scrooge explores his past, present, and future to discover that by giving he can have a more bountiful life. There are so many ways to show your kids how much fun it is to give.

Here are some fun ways I discovered to spread holiday cheer:

Christmas Jar

100 Random Acts of Kindness for Christmas

Card to use for your random acts of kindness

12 days of Christmas Kindness

Some other easy ideas are to pass on some of your christmas goodies, visit a nursing home, go carolling, or have the kids give their old toys to the less fortunate. You can also reinforce the spirt of giving by giving of your time – help a friend wrap presents, run an errand for your friend, or even bring an extra meal to make someone’s evening a little easier.

Make a difference and spread some holiday cheer by giving of yourself and your families love!
