One of our community projects was to make homemade cards and sent them to ill children that were having “card showers” sponsored for them by Blessing Boxes (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Blessing-Boxes/210141859078505?id=210141859078505&sk=info).
Skills we worked on during these projects:
-Fine Motor Skills
-Talked about children that are ill
-Learned felling words (sympathy, empathy, sadness, etc…)
-Worked on writing skills
-Learned about the postal system (we talked about what happens to the cards after we put them in the mail)
