Community Helpers Poster

My youngest daughter's daycare is so wonderful, but they don't have much "stuff"! They ask for volunteers, but people are busy, and they don't get a lot of help. So, my older daughter, Hannah, has started to volunteer her time and effort for the benefit of the daycare. Two weekends ago, she helped her daddy fix the gates on the daycare. This weekend, she helped me cut and assemble a new poster for the toddlers, called "Community Helpers":



We used Cuttin Up for the title, and Everyday Paper Dolls for all the people. Faces are hand-drawn. We cut the people in white, and Hannah coloured them with my most favorite markers for kids, the Crayola Multicultural colours. These are sometimes hard to find, but they come in markers, pencil crayons and crayons. The set of 8 has all sorts of skin tones. Did I say I love them?







I hope you'll leave a comment for Hannah. She's seven and a Brownie and is learning the value of community service. This is her first self-motivated volunteer activity, and I'm very proud of her!
