Toronto: The Savvy Guide to December

SavvyMom March 31, 2016

It’€™s December, and even though you might be thinking about that long gift list for your friends and family, we’€™ve moved on. It’€™s time to start thinking about how to instill an appreciation for the gift of ‘€˜giving’€™ in your kids.
Here are some ideas for you to help capture the true spirit of the holidays.

Bring your kids to your local toy store to choose a gift for someone they don’€™t know, then wrap it up and drop it off at a toy drive
Why? Because it’€™s good for them to understand that some kids don’€™t get everything they want for the holidays’€”in fact, some don’€™t get anything at all.

To the Habitat for Humanity Gingerbread Build on December 3 or 4
Why? Not only are you getting in some quality family time while partaking in the classic gingerbread house building tradition, but you’€™re also supporting Habitat as they work to build affordable housing for families in Toronto. It’€™s a great twist on the classic phrase ‘€˜Home for the Holidays’€™.

A gift of three baby chicks for someone who has everything
Why? Because it’€™s a $15 gift that literally keeps on giving for girls in developing nations who will use the chicken eggs to sell and feed their own families. It could help save a girl’€™s life.

In the snow with the kids, and be a friendly neighbour by shoveling the driveway or walkway for someone who can’€™t do it themselves
Why? It’€™s a great way to spend time with your family outside and teach the kids how to think of others in their community.
