Now this one has been a hit! I was trying to come up with an idea for my kids last month to reinforce the monthly value for April that our family had been working on (which was unselfishness and sensitivity) and since Sundays are days I would like to fill with more meaningful activities,
"Bake and Take Sundays" were invented. Here's how they work -
On the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month, we are going to bake something together as a family and then deliver half of it to a person/family of our choice! We divided up the weeks for the next couple of months and assigned each family member one of the weeks. That way we all get to take turns selecting the lucky recipient for that week. Man, was this fun! Definately a keeper.
These guys were pretty excited to be the first ones in the family to choose our goodie and where we were going to deliver them. They picked a special school friend and boy was he excited when we showed up at his house with some yummy warm cookies!
