Sharing art to those who need a smile, home day care, DeKalb, IL We keep a box by our art area. The children can choose to bring their artwork home or donate it to someone that needs a smile. Once the box gets several items in it, I give them to local church so the minister can bring them to shut-ins, nursing home or hospital visits. Sometimes we can deliver it to the places in person or we go to neighbors and offer smiles. The children love this ability to make something that will bring smiles to others.
Sharing Food, parent, Crystal Lake, IL We have a monthly dinner in our neighborhood and each preschooler brings at least one item that we put in a box to donate to our local food pantry. The children are usually just as excited to bring their gift as they are to eat our dinner.
Hands of Jesus Project, St. Paul’s Christian Preschool, Crystal Lake, IL We gave out envelopes with $5 in them for families to help others. We offered suggestions and then let the children report back what they had done. We were amazed at the famlily’s abilities make $5 change lives.
