Summer break. For 10 months a year, your family is regimented by the school schedule. So how do you make the two months or so of family time count, whether it seems like forever or flies by?
How do you engage the “I’m bored” kids? How do you carve out quality time with busy kids between camps? How do you intentionally make summer epic (and fun) for your family?
We’ve compiled 10 fun games your family can play that help kids learn how to “pay it forward” and give them the confidence that they are never too young to change the world.
Kids who changed the world — and themselves
Think your family can’t change the world? Think again. Real stories:
Eleven-year-old Tyler has turned his big dreams of bringing clean water to communities in Africa into reality. So far, he has raised more than $18,000 with his lemonade stand — and he’s not done yet! “I believe that everyone can do something,” says Tyler. “It’s just whether they want to set their mind and heart to it.”
Easy, creative ideas
Some of these kids’ efforts may seem extraordinary. But they aren’t any different from your family. They took the time to learn about needs in the world, made a plan, and made it happen.
