Make Room for New

Teddy Bear Family in Picnic Basket

This weekend is the perfect time to help children make room for all the goodies they’ll receive at Christmas.  Get them involved with their decision-making, guide them to make considered choices.  You may be surprised by just what those decisions are.  But value the process.  Children will learn about self-awareness (by evaluating their needs and wants), philosophy (thinking from different perspectives), maths (spatial considerations), money (“wow, those skates cost a lot and I never used them”), sustainability (what’s an earth-friendly way to dispose of this?) and if they are encouraged to donate items in good condition, they’ll learn to think of others.
