Teach Them to Serve {#3 ~ Encouraging Words}

This post contains affiliate links.

Happy Friday, friends!  It's a beautiful sunshiney day here in North Texas!  It's been rainy and COLD, so our street needed a little something to brighten our days.  I challenged Little Man to go outside and leave some encouraging notes for our neighbors on the sidewalk!

Teach them to serve by leaving happy notes for the neighbors!

There's really nothing super special about this activity, but I hope those seeing the notes felt a little bit of the sunshine we wanted to give them!  Little Man grabbed the chalk and Baby Boy and I plopped ourselves into the grass.  

I'd say he enjoyed himself!

At first Little Man wasn't quite sure what to write.  I prompted him to think of the things he would want to hear if he was having a bad day.

"God loves you!"

"Have a great day!"  Complete with smiley faces, hearts, and a cross!

"You are cool!"  "Thank you!"

I cut off the picture trying to get the words he wrote.  He also wanted to draw a special Captain America just for Daddy!

Teach them to serve with this fun series of 25 acts of kindness for the whole family!

Overall, I'd say it was a fun afternoon outside!  I loved that Little Man had to stop and think about what someone else might want to hear after a bad day.  Hopefully he'll be able to carry that into other parts of his life!

"Great is His faithfulness; His mercies are new every morning!"
Lamentations 3:23

What is the best thing you've ever heard after a bad day?
