How to involve children in service

As parents, we often wonder how we can teach our children the importance of service. We wonder about the best way to get little hands involved and young minds and hearts engaged.

A group of bloggers have launched an initiative, Blog for Cause, challenging families to do just that. Amy Mascott of Teach Mama , Allison McDonald of No Time for Flashcards
and Amanda Morgan of Not Just Cute are encouraging families to choose a cause that is meaningful to them and to work together to prove that little hands can make a big difference.

The bloggers are hoping that families will recognize that service doesn't have to be on a large scale to make a difference for the better in the lives of the people who are touched -- including the children who take part in giving that service.

Amanda recently shared a simple project on her blog which she and her boys created to donate to Primary Children's Medical Center. You can get the details of the project here and also read about other projects families have used to involve their children in giving service..

Thanks to Amanda for a great idea for our patients!
