Look out for Local Events

If possible, you need to try and keep an eye out in the local newspaper for any announcements. It may be that there is a music festival going on, or that someone is hosting an arts exhibition. If this is the case, then you may want to try and do your bit to take part. If you can do this, then you will be able to attract people to the local community and you may even find that you can do your bit to help people who may be in need of an extra pair of hands. Simply attending the events will also help you to boost your local community spirit.

Give up your Time

There truly are so many ways that you can give up your time. It may be that you choose to give up your time and offer people who need it, dog walking services. You may also want to visit your local animal shelter to see if they need any help walking the animals that they have. Think about what is truly important to you, and then reach out to the organization that may need help. If you can do this, then you will soon find that it is easier than ever for you to feel satisfaction from the efforts you are putting in.


You don’t always need to give up your time to help the local community. Sometimes donating your clothes or even your household goods can be good. if you have any bed linen that you don’t use anymore, then give it to a homeless shelter. You can donate your books to a local library, or you can even donate toys to a children’s play center. If you want some additional ideas, then explore school fundraising to see if there is anything you can do there.

Shop Locally

Buy from your local vendors where possible. You never know when you are going to find the cutest bracelet from a festival or when you are going to find paintings that might have been created by a local artist. Shopping at a farmer’s market is also a good idea as this means that your money will go right to the people who need it. Sometimes it is the smallest acts of kindness that make the biggest difference, so be mindful of this if you can.

Join a Group

If you can take the time to find a group that may be going on in your local area, then this can also be a very valuable use of your time. If you go to a local group, then you may find that you can learn of people who are just like you, and you can also learn about activities you might enjoy as well.

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!

Toddler Rainbow Craft for St. Patricks Day

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly.  I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos.  Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you.   This was a super easy one for those little hands.  I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting.  The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper.  EASY, but they enjoyed it!  :)  It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge!  :)   I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!
