#12- A friendly greeting

Christmas is not the only time to remember others with a greeting card.  There are many other greetings that can be sent to those in a hospital or extended care facility.  Such as; Groundhog’s Day, Valentine’s Day,  St. Patrick’s Day, or to welcome Spring.  Nothing like a card to brighten up someone’s lonely day.  A card or a visit from a friendly Tiger Cub can help a lot.

*Make at least 2 cards or decorations and take them to a hospital or nursing home.  Be sure to call ahead to wherever you decide to go to find out about visiting hours, and if they accept young visitors.  Another idea would be to add a hand made bookmark inside the greeting card.


#13- Making Change

Learning to count coins and to make change accurately takes practice.
