Make a warming parcel with your kids
Today you could have a think with your child about what someone might need to wear to keep warm and then gather up together gloves, socks, a blanket, an old jumper of dads and some vests and make a little parcel for your local homeless shelter. It’s still a bit cold out there! Encourage your child to really think about what someone may need to keep cosy. Then dive under a duvet together and have a big warm cuddle and think how lucky you are. It is fun to help others and it doesn’t have to be about money. I bet your child really enjoys doing this.
There is a really amazing book I love called
Change the world for a fiver
which is filled with things you and your children can do to have fun and make a difference to the world for very little expense. Well worth a purchase and great gift idea. Currently £2.99 with free P+P on Amazon
