The week before Christmas, the boys and I made homemade gingerbread playdoh which we wrapped up with cookie cutters to be delivered to children in the foster care system, who are about to be permantly severed from their biological families. :( We hope these little gifts brought them joy this Christmas!
And even though the season of giving has come to an end, I plan to continue teaching the boys the importance of giving through random acts of kindness all year long! In fact, de-clutter mode is in full effect at our house...we are purging everything in sight, planning to make several trips to goodwill in the process. It is such a joy to hear my oldest tell me that he wants to give his stuff to "kids who don't have anything."
I will let you know what other random acts of kindness we come up with along the way and I hope you will do the same!
