Ideas for the Light Green Petal

Your girls are old enough to learn about empathy. Now is the time to instill this value. Your troop can make home made items to donate to nursing homes, the military, animal shelters or hospitals. Cards and tray favors are an inexpensive idea for first year troops to start with. Holidays are always a good time to remember those less fortunate than us. Food drives at Thanksgiving and Christmas caroling at nursing homes are traditional community service activities but their are many other ways to teach your girls about empathy year round.


Fun Fact: By five years old, a child should begin to understand about empathy.
