Feed the Hungry Car Kits to #LightTheWorld

I have absolutely loved participating in the mormon.org #LightTheWorld challenges this year. It really helps bring a special spirit to the holiday season, when you focus on serving others. I have done small things for each day, but for Day 21 “Feed the Hungry”, I wanted to do something a little bigger… Feed the Hungry Car Kits!

Simple Printable Service Project for Kids

We have loved Mickey and the Roaster Racers literally since the very first episode aired. That is why I am so excited to have Disney Junior sponsoring this post! My daughter loves that all of her favorite Mickey Mouse characters are on a new show and loves each of their cars. She has actually learned quite a bit about geography as the Roadster Racers travel the world for their races on each episode. I really like the Happy Helpers segments with Minnie and Daisy. They show Minnie and Daisy as they help different people in various situations as they learn new skills along the way. It inspired me to create a little Happy Helpers service project race for kids to participate in!

I love the idea of teaching children to perform acts of service, without any rewards attached to them. If they are treating it like a race based off of one of their favorite shows, it makes it even more enjoyable! I wanted to make each service activity something that could be done by a variety of ages and made it a printable list so you can easily print it and get serving! [Read more…]

Giving Children Our Time: Light the World with Service

The holiday season can bring a lot of chaos into our lives. When there are so many events and shopping that happens in such a short amount of time, it can be hard to lose sight of what is truly important this holiday season. I love the reminder I received when I watched this video about bringing light to the world by serving others. This holiday season can also be the perfect opportunity to serve. To learn more visit https://www.mormon.org?cid=66200019.
