Cards for ...

To help your children appreciate the power of giving, get out all the old greeting cards you've saved.  Recycle them into new cards by cutting and pasting a collage on an index card or posterboard.  Add coloring to enhance the pictures.  Have your children write a little note on the back or inside, depending on the style of card you've re-created.  Send notes of thanks to people in the military, get well cards to people in hospitals, and thinking of your cards to folks in nursing homes.  Help your children to visualize the smiles on those strangers' faces as they open their cards :-)

For more ways to help children understand the value of charitable acts, read Helping Kids Help and Somebody Cares!.  Go to my websites for more information:  www.reneeheiss.com/hkh.html and www.reneeheiss.com/somebodycares.html.
