Season’s Giving

For the past few years we have been doing the Reverse Advent Calendar from Passionate Penny Pincher.  This project is a WONDERFUL way to help your kids focus on others during the busy holiday season.  My kids like to decorate cardboard boxes for their items and it is fun to watch the boxes fill up during the month of December. My best advice is to buy the food ahead of time and store it some place where it wont be accidentally consumed! Then each day have your children “go shopping” to retrieve the item for that day.

This year I was inspired to create two new giving calendar’s to encourage EVERYONE to participate in Season’s Giving.  I created a Solstice Giving calendar and an 8 Days of Giving calendar that you can download and print out.

Last year in November, I gave my children the Reverse Advent Calendar list and a grocery budget.  They logged on to our local grocery store’s website and worked together to purchase the groceries  online.  Many grocery store chains and Walmart offer curbside pick up or delivery, so that your kids can do this activity from the safety of home.  Not only did they learn about giving, they also learned about budgeting and the cost of food.

So many are in need during this holiday season.  If your family is able to give back, I hope you will consider participating in Season’s Giving.  This is a wonderful lesson for your children and it will benefit so many people.
