This summer Kids in Service will be focusing on a Summer of Gratitude.  We will slow things down, savor the season using our senses and look for creative ways to bless others with kindness.  Acts of kindness often have a ripple effect, that we never see. One kind deed has the power to inspire a chain of kindness where hundreds or thousands of people may be blessed as a result. This is the MAGIC of Paying it Forward and you and your family can do that this summer.

Join us this summer as we work together to focus on gratitude, to brighten peoples days and spread a little love and kindness. Click on an image below for more information about the project ideas, book recommendations and resources. Be Safe and Be Well!

Racism is a sensitive and very big topic and I am by no means an expert. I am a parent, like many of you, trying to raise kids to be accepting and kind individuals who stand up for what is right. I always turn to books and movies as a springboard for greater conversation with my children and there are some great suggestions in this article. My hope is that you will find something in this list that will help you, as you navigate this important topic with your children of all ages.
Let’s return to the slower summers of our childhood and create time and space for our kids to play and use their imaginations. Let’s find the joy in a slow summer at home.

Camp Kindness is a FREE “camp” experience that you can download and try out with your family this summer. I wanted to create a “camp” experience, centered around service and kindness, that families could do together. It is organized as a 4 day week but you can easily spread the days out and do one a week for a month long program or schedule in the activities when they fit into your summer.  This camp is for EVERYONE and can be easily modified for all ages.
