*How to be thoughtful
What can you do to teach the above things?
*Teach them to think of others first
*Give them opportunities to serve others

How does our family teach these things?
*Make placemats for Meals On Wheels
*Play the piano & sing Christmas carols at a nursing home
*Buy Christmas gifts for needy children
Here are some pictures of the placemats that we made.
We have also done this at other times of the year and they are very receptive to it. You could also use old Christmas cards by cutting out the pictures and gluing them on, scrapbook paper scraps, use punches, Cricut machine, die cuts, rubber stamps or have the kids draw a picture on them.
Check back in the coming days for more festive ideas for you and your only child :O)
