Be a child again!
RSVP of Snohomish County
At least feel like one while leading kids through creative activities. A local homeless shelter for families is looking for a volunteer to come in on a weekly basis and share activities with them.
It could be drawing, painting, sculpting, singing, dancing or reading. It could be guitar or acting lessons. It could be reading and writing for pleasure.
These kids are in a less than ideal situation. This activity will help them feel like normal kids if only for a little while. There is also an opportunity for holiday season projects and activities.
