The Artist. If your child’s a bit too shy or too young to go face-to-face with strangers, she can exercise some generosity by crafting awesome artwork to give away. Christmas tree ornaments or blank greeting cards may be particularly appropriate gifts that keep on giving.

The Kid Who’s Out of Ideas. Looking a truly random act of kindness? Step 1: Take your kid to the grocery store and pick out some balloons and flowers. Step 2: Head down to a hospital or senior center. Step 3: Walk your kid from room to room dropping off a balloon or flower to each person. Step 4: Smile!

A word about timing. People who work with charities will tell you that they get lots of volunteer help around the holidays, but that it sharply drops off once the new year starts. Don’t feel you have to squeeze your family’s volunteer efforts into an already busy holiday season. Instead, make a family pledge to volunteer in the coming year, when charities and people in need could use the help even more.

There are so many ways to give back and too many charity organizations to list in a single article. Knowing where to start can be a challenge. If you’re stuck, try VolunteerMatch, a nonprofit that can conveniently connect you with a worthy cause in your area.
