Look back at the top news stories of 2013: inspiration came from the brave Malala Yousafzai to the passionate Pope Francis, to the hopeful BatKid; the world shook with news of Nelson Mandela’s passing; the tragedies of the Boston Marathon and the super typhoon had us on our knees; the first Indian-American was crowned Miss America and racism reared its ugly head; armed conflict and civil war rocked the world.
As 2014 begins, I looked back on everything we’ve explored during 2013 to see what the most popular post was. I am honored and inspired that the number one post was 35 Service Projects for Kids.
Parents, teachers, and Scout leaders are looking for ways their kids can give back to the community. In this extensive list, they are finding organizations and volunteer opportunities for little ones so they can empower kids with responsibility, engage their compassion, and offer them the chance to affect the lives of others. Teach kids about the world, differing perspectives, and how we are all interconnected as they learn altruism through service projects.
I am part of a lovely group called “Kid Bloggers Network.” 50 of us members are coming together for The KBN Best Of 2013 Blog Hop. We know you’ll find tons of wonderful ideas to browse, pin and share. We’d love for you to join the blog hop and share your favorite activity of 2013 too, and make sure you’re following the Kid Blogger Network on Pinterest.
Happy New Year from the KBN Best of 2013 Blog Hop Co-Hosts!
