The summer months usually mean fewer activities to track. That, combined with warmer weather and vacation time, makes summer an ideal time to serve. Start small, looking to your children’s passions for volunteer ideas.
- If your kids are creative, have them make cards for neighbors.
- If your family enjoys nature, pick up trash at a local park or tend a community garden.
- To give back at church, clean classrooms or nursery toys.
- To keep children’s skills sharp on summer break, have them write letters to homebound relatives or nursing-home residents.
Through fun, age-appropriate projects, children can see the immediate impacts of following God’s command to serve one another
