If life is getting too busy and everyone needs to be pulled back together for some family time…try this service activity:
Gather your kids and decide who around you could use a secret service…a plate of cookies, a note, or a small gift. Tell them they will become the SWaT team tonight. (SWaT—Service Without a Trace)
Prepare the gift, wait until dark, put on your mask (if you want), and sneakily deliver the item, knock, and run! Kids will be smiling and a heart will be lifted…sounds like a win, win situation to me!
(I know this is just an old idea with a new twist, but service is timeless. Teaching kids to look outside of themselves will make their lives more meaningful.)
