I’m not sure what a child’s fascination is with scissors, but give my kids a pair and they will proceed to make an extreme mess of tiny bits of any paper type product they can get their hands on.
So when we found the Overseas Coupon Program where we can clip coupons and send them to our military bases overseas to help our troops save money, they kids were thrilled.
Now they have a ‘good deed’ project to keep them busy on rainy days helping those who serve our country so bravely. Plus, they will be practicing their math skills (don’t tell them), when tallying up how much coupon savings we are sending.
They accept coupons that are up to a few months expired and the coupons simply need to be cut and sorted into ‘food’ and ‘non-food’ categories then you choose an overseas military base and send them in the mail. All the directions are here.
We’re going to start this today!
