I live in the northern hemisphere and slowly but surely the days are getting longer and on February 2nd, we will be half way to spring. Hygge is often thought of as a winter concept but the truth is the Danish people take the coziness and togetherness of hygge and make it last all year long. Here are some fun family ideas to plan for when the weather gets warmer.
Hygge Ideas for the Warmer Weather
- Pizza on the beach at sunset
- Outdoor concert
- Ice cream cones on a hot day
- Reading in a Hammock
- Catching Fireflies in a Jar
- Outdoor BBQ with Friends
- Cloud watching
All Year Long Hygge Activities
- Family game night
- Family read aloud time
- Potluck Dinner
- Family Hike
This is the last hygge post for this season. We hope you have enjoyed this month of focusing on family self-care and hygge. We at Kids in Service believe that you must take care of yourself if you plan to serve others.

For this sweet project you need to gather everyone in the kitchen to bake together. I know what you are thinking parents…do I want to have to clean up a big mess? Wouldn’t it be easier to bake the treats myself? I promise that involving your kids (even the little guys) will be a much more rewarding service project. Trust me, it will be worth it!
Will you and your family accept this mission of APPRECIATION?
Your Mission: Bake a sweet treat for a group of people who serve your community. Have your children create a thank you note to go along with the treat. Deliver the treat and let that group know how much you appreciate all they do.
Supplies: a kitchen, baking supplies, the ingredients for a NUT FREE treat (cookies, brownies, cupcakes etc), a container that you are willing to give away, paper and writing/coloring tools
Procedure: Pick a community group that your family would like to bake for. Perhaps you bring the treats to the fire station, the police station, the librarians, your school custodians, the workers at the town dump, the town employees, the postal workers, the snow plow drivers or your parish office. The possibilities are endless for this project!!
Work together to bake a sweet treat like cookies, cupcakes or brownies (try to keep everything nut free and label that you did so). Package the treats up in a container that you are willing to give away (saving a few for family hygge time) and create a thank you card to go along with the treats (click here for a FREE Kids in Service Thank You Card Printable). Deliver the treats as a family to the intended community group. Try to coordinate the drop off time with the hours that they are open.
This is one of my favorite hands-on service projects for kids and it can be done with ages 2 and up. Who will you and your children bake for???
Did you complete this mission?

We’d love to include your children in our Incredible Kids of the month!
