Today for your advent activity, why not surprise a neighbor by doing something unexpected? You never know when somebody might really need an act of kindness.
I’ve listed a few ideas below. Add your own to the comments at the bottom of this post.
Sweep their sidewalk
Give them one of your homemade Christmas gifts
Just stop by and say hello
Rake some leaves
Sing a Christmas carol for them
Shovel snow if you have some in your area
Take them some cookies
Pick up any litter from the street in their yard
Say a prayer for them
Offer to walk their dog
Watch their kids for two hours while they go shopping (great if you have older kids and they have younger)
This icebreaker is a little like musical chairs or Duck Duck Goose. It involves getting up and moving to an empty seat. The question is, do you love your neighbor or not? 🙂
Service projects are a good way to show our care for others. They can be considered a type of almsgiving. One popular project with teens and younger children is yardwork for the elderly.
See some resources on the importance of being neighbors and how to strengthen our communities.
