With Christmas quickly approaching, it is easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of shopping and gift giving. However, this holiday season, we would really like to focus on some great ideas that can bring you and your child closer together.

Giving to those who are in need helps teach your child the importance of giving back. Donating to the food bank, visiting the elderly, or volunteering at a local shelter are all great ways to get involved. Or, make it a New Year’s resolution for you and your child to begin volunteering more often in the community.

While children often focus on what they are getting from Santa, why not give them the opportunity to play Santa for a family in need? Adopting a family through the Salvation Army gives you the opportunity to provide the family with all the necessities they will need for the holiday season. There is no better gift than giving back.

We, at The Magic of Think, believe that sharing Christmas with those in need can help bring you and your family closer together. But, as always, we would love to hear your thoughts. Happy Holidays!
