Tribe Kids: Seek Service
The theme for December is “Seek Service.” In choosing a service project to do with young and middle-grade children, it is important to communicate to the children that any activity, small or big, is important! From cleaning the house/garage/yard with their family members, to working on a local “Habitat for Humanity” project or a trash pick-up, or even raising money for a cause, children can do a multitude of things to be of service.
But be weary of doing things that seem helpful and are not. By this we mean, choose a project in your community that is needed, and has been identified by community leaders and organizations as important. Taking the lead of local businesses and non-profits and working alongside them teaches our children how important it is to work together and build community through service.
