Family Time Calendar: Get Out - iVillage

With Christmas right around the corner, give your child a holiday gift she'll never forget: a lesson in charitable giving. Begin by explaining that there are lots of girls and boys who are not as lucky to have as many toys as she does. Then head to your local toy store to purchase a few toys to give away. Or select some old, but only gently used, toys from your child's collection. Deliver the items (unwrapped) to a local hospital or charitable organization together. Although it will depend upon your child's level of development to grasp these ideas, allowing her to participate will surely start your little one on the road to a lifetime of giving back.
