Read a bunch of ideas online about how to foster giving during this season of advent.

Then came up with this:

The ideas is that each day is a different activity…sometimes something special for the kids, our family and sometimes something for others. Here are a few from our list:

call a grandparent just to say “i love you”
tape quarters to a vending machine
bring the office ladies at school some coffee
make a card for a friend and mail it
have hot chocolate for an after school snack
get an extra 30 minutes of plugged in time
decorate our gingerbread house
deliver treats to the trash men, postman and neighbors
a host of movie nights: Elf, A Christmas Story and the Nativity Story
Lunch with cousins
making gingerbread cookies
making a Christmas craft
bring coffee and donuts to our teachers on Monday morning
