This week’s post is a change from other Unplugged Project posts. The theme for this week’s Unplugged Project was change. We did lots of things this week that involve change, but no real sit down and do it kind of “project.” None of these projects were planned around the theme, they just happened.
Change the world: On Thursday I took my oldest daughter and a few other children from her class to our local soup kitchen to help serve lunch and clean tables. I am leading a community service workshop for our small Montessori school’s elementary class (6 to 9 year-olds). If we want to change the world, we must start with the children. More on this project later.
Small change (can change the world): Of their own initiative, my oldest daughter and two friends have formed a secret club called The Helping Hands Club (The HHC for those in the know!). On Saturday they sold homemade chocolate chip cookies that they made (by themselves) and pumpkins (that they bought with their own money) to a few neighbors and made $21+ in small change for charity! (Reminded me a bit of the great Heifer International Christmas ornament sale a few years ago.)
Change of seasons: It is fall in our part of the world and we walked together on this glorious fall day. The sky was blue, the fall colors vibrant, the air crisp yet comfortable. A fire is crackling in the fireplace now as I write this.
Changing the worm bin: Yes, the worms in our worm bin are still happily eating, reproducing, and pooping. It was time to change the bedding and harvest the castings, so we did it today. The kids love interacting with the worms. We are trying a new harvesting method this time, more on that later if it works.
If you did a change Unplugged Project, then please link to your POST not just your blog in the Linky below. If you did not join in, then do not link, but you can always read more here about how to participate in the Unplugged Project. We’d love to have you!
The theme for next week’s Unplugged Project will be:
Have fun and be creative!
