When the world shut down, our local Kids in Service NH meetings were canceled for the year. I had some great activities planned and was so sad that I would not be able to see the kids in our two groups or the seniors at the nursing home that we work with.
In April I decided to try a virtual meeting, and modeled it after our in person meetings. I wanted to share a story and offer 2 project suggestions. I had so much fun making the April Earth Day meeting that I decided to make another for May.
These meetings are under 15 minutes and are meant to be low stress for you. You can have your children just listen to the story and/or participate in one or both of the projects if you have the time. The projects can be done from the safety of your home and most can be done with materials around the house.
I hope that you and your children will enjoy these virtual meetings. I’d love to see pictures of your children participating in the meetings that I can share on our KIS social media pages. Thanks and happy serving!
May Meeting–I start off with the book One by Kathryn Otoshi, we make Birthday Boxes and make cards for the local nursing home (rainy day art project).
Earth Day Meeting–I start off reading the book Love the Earth by Julian Lennon, we make recycled art projects and clean up trash on our street.
