Donate Toys to Charity with the Kids' Help


Finally, show your family's giving spirit this holiday season by shopping for a toy or two to give to Toys for Tots or another local toy drive. Since your kids are the toy experts, let them do the picking (within your budget). It will brighten your Christmas and someone else's. Since the kids are also surely expecting new loot this year, go through their toy box together and find the (gently used) toys they're willing to part with for charity. It's a good lesson in selflessness (and moderation!). Merry Christmas!
