i just showed you our summer list (its also pictured below) – a gigantic list of all the fun activities we hope to do as a family this summer.
but i began to think that we should do more. and not more for us, but more for others. i am always telling the kids to think of others first, but we don’t always put it into practice. with the extra free time summer provides, i thought this would be a perfect time to put our words into actions!
in case you can’t read them all, here’s whats on our list:
- write letters to grandparents – drop a vase of flowers at a friend’s house – surprise someone with donuts – bake cookies for a neighbor – donate old toys – get smoothies for friends – give a “just because” gift – do your sibling’s chores – deliver cookies to the homeless – order pizza for a friend – donate proceeds from a lemonade stand – write letters to friends – baby sit for a friend
we have our summer service list right above our summer list, right at eye level.
what would you put on your summer service list? we’d love more ideas!
