As a family, make a donation of money, food, clothes, etc. to a foodbank, shelter, or other charitable organizations. It would be best if the donation were money that the child had to earn through their own work or chores before donating, or food and clothing purchased with such money. Either take your children to the facility to drop items off, or ask the child to contribute a portion of their chore/holiday/spending money to donate to the cause of your family's choice. As well, make soup or some type of food to deliver to a sick/elderly neighbor and spend time visiting if you can as a family. Of course, it is also vital to impress upon children the importance of charity, generosity and giving all year round.
