No child is too young to learn about the significance of giving back. As parents, we are our children’s first and most influential teacher, so we can either be models for philanthropy or selfishness. Below are tips to help your preschooler get involved in giving:
1. Make a card for a sick friend.
If you have a sick friend or family member, have your preschooler make them a card. This is a great way to teach your child about giving of their time and talents, while also bringing a smile to someone’s face.
2. Collect canned goods for a food drive.
If your child is interested in giving back to the community, participate in a food drive together. This is a great way to teach your child about hunger in the world and how they can make a difference.
3. Sponsor a child in need.
If you’re looking for a more long-term way to get your preschooler involved in giving, consider sponsoring a child in need. This is a great way to teach your child about giving on a regular basis.
4. Volunteer at a local nursing home.
Another great way to get your child involved in giving is to volunteer at a local nursing home. This is a great way to teach your child about giving their time. Plus, the residents always love having young visitors!
5. Plant a tree together.
If you’re looking for a way to get your preschooler involved in giving back to the environment, plant a tree together. This is a great way to teach your child about the importance of taking care of our planet. Plus, it’s a fun activity to do together!
Giving back doesn’t have to be complicated. By starting early and leading by example, you can instill the values of giving in your preschooler and set them on the path to a lifetime of philanthropy.
