Christmas in July Goodies Basket + Tags

I was asked awhile back by my good friend, 
Steph @ Somewhat Simple if I would be a part of her
Summer of Service series. I, of course, was thrilled to do it! We were asked to come up with something service related, and as I thought and thought about what I wanted to do I realized it was hard to think about service during this HOT and BUSY

{more like CRAZY since the kiddos are home} time of year. But that’s NO excuse, especially because there are SOO many people {family, friends, neighbors, even strangers} who are suffering because of hard economic times.
To get the kids more involved, I tried to think about the times our family has had most fun serving, and I immediately thought of Christmas. It’s so easy and fun to think of others during the holidays, so I wanted to share with you an idea I came up with.
I thought it would be great to assemble some Summer Goodies and deliver them to a family in need of some “Christmas in July” Cheer. It can be done anonymously or any way you’d like, but I knew that something simple like this {all bought for under $10} could make someone’s day or even week!

-Christmas in July Tag
It didn’t require a lot {one trip to Wal-Mart}, but doing something fun like this will show the kiddos how important and fun it is to serve others! PLUS, I know that if we think of others and strive to serve those around us more, not only will we make others happy, but we will be more happy ourselves.
