8 Service Projects Kids Can Do!
Kids love to help as much as adults. Here is a list of kid-tested projects.
- Make thank you cards for the fire fighters, peace officers, emergency medical people and other first responders in your community.
- Decorate place mats for the Meals on Wheels organization to distribute to seniors along with the meals.
- Organize an afternoon of playing board games at a local senior center – and play board games together!
- Have a garage sale or lemonade stand to raise money for a local charity.
- Bring gently used board games and cards to a local homeless shelter.
- Write a letter to a local elected official about a cause you care about.
- Put on gloves and collect litter at your local park.
- With some friends, make a “Welcome” guide for new students at your school. Include information about your favorite parks, a map of your neighborhood and fun things to do.
