I'm sure many of you have seen this before, but it is one of my favorite "simple, yet effective" ways to get my kids involved in a charity. What kid doesn't like to color? My 6 year old can go through a coloring book in a day. The thing is, those sheets just get thrown away (hopefully recycled). Why not have the kiddos color a page and bring a smile to a stranger's face in the process.
Here's how it works.
1) Go to Color A Smile
2) Either download one of their coloring pages, or follow the directions to make one of your own.
3) Send in your masterpiece.
These pictures go to Nursing Homes, Meals On Wheels programs, and other individuals that have requested a "smile."
A fun and easy on-going project for the kidderoos. For the price of a piece of paper, an envelope and a stamp, you take a kid's throw-away project and pass on the love.
