Service Shout Out

Did you know that this week is Kindness Week with February 17th being Kindness Day?  I'd never heard of it before, but my kids are bringing things home from school and I think it is an AWESOME idea!  I love looking for ways to help and serve others.
I think kids naturally want to help others, but sometimes they feel limited on what they can do or they are stymied on who they can serve.  Service/Kindness Shout Out can help stimulate ideas while you play.  Each deck has 31 ideas of how to serve, all through pictures (so even non-readers can play).  To play, race to find the one, and only one match, on each card.  When you're done playing, you'll be ready to go and do some good in the world today!
As an alternative, you can hand one card to a child and have them choose what they want to do on it.
FYI -  There are two backing options:  "Service Shout Out" or "Kindness Shout Out".  The printable storage boxes also come with both titles.  So, call it whichever you want.

To download, print and play Service Shout Out today:
On Etsy: Service Shout Out
On Teachers Pay Teachers: Service Shout Out

I think character education is so important to our children, that I've also created a FREEBIE mini-Service game.  It only has 13 ideas and cards, but is the perfect size to print out and send home with children.  While printing in color is more fun, for large classes, you can also print in black and white.  Students can cut out their own games in circle or square shapes.

Download the FREEBIE mini-Service Shout Out Game. 

I'd appreciate it if you PIN or Share these games on Social Media.  Thank you.

πŸ’˜Love is in the air and I'm sending Valentine's Shout Out games to all my friends and family who live near and far to let them know how much I care.  One 3" game can be mailed for $.70 postage.πŸ’•

πŸ’I'm also making a bunch for my son's kindergarten class.  He's so excited to give them out on Valentine's day.  The printable boxes have a gift card that says "To:" and "From:"  He'll get lots of practice writing his classmates names, as well as his own.πŸ’Ÿ

πŸ’žThe room mom is taking in a Shout Out game and conversation hearts to play Shout Out "Bingo" style.  She'll give each child a card and 6 candies.  Then she'll draw out of a bowl one of the pictures from the sheet of images included.  When someone covers all their pictures, they'll shout out "Bingo".

πŸ’–I'm keeping the "I Spy" game at home for when the kids are starting to crash from their sugar high.  It should cap the day off perfectly.

LIGHT the WORLD

Have you seen this new #LIGHTtheWORLD video?  I love it!! It encourages us to serve as Christ served for the 25 days until Christmas.  It parallels the great acts of love and service Jesus performed with small acts of service we can give to those around us.

I can't wait to introduce this to my kids and the Cub Scouts that I work with.  Daily service will truly bring the Spirit of Christ into the season.

In order to help my kids, Cub Scouts and myself, I created a couple things:  Service Shout Out which illustrates 11 different ways to offer service and "LIGHT the WORLD" gift boxes, to add small gifts, trinkets or candies.  Each of these are FREE.  I hope that you can use them in your homes, classrooms and churches too.  Wouldn't it be amazing if this year we truly light the world by bringing hope and light to one person at a time with our service?


Service Shout Out can be played normally by racing to find your match and shouting out as you find it.  But it can also be used to prompt service ideas.  Choose a card and do one of the four illustrations today. (example: yardwork, cleaning, bake and give cookies or raise and donate money).  OR Choose two cards, find the one match between them and make that your focus of service today.

LIGHT the WORLD printable Gift Boxes are perfect for gifting small candies, stickers, trinkets, pictures or more this month.  You can also place the Service Shout Out cards in the Light the World boxes to tie service and this initiative together.

DOWNLOAD all games and boxes from my FREEBIES page.


Please Pin and share these downloads with others!

For more service ideas and videos, see www.Mormon.org

For more Shout Out Games, visit Rise and Shout on Etsy or Teachers Pay Teachers.  Shout Out games come in 40+ themes including holidays (Christmas, Nativity), learning (abc's, numbers), bilingual practice (medical, shapes & colors), religious (LDS, Symbols of Christ) and more.


The Red Headed Hostess has a collection of ideas and printables from many different bloggers to help with #LIGHTtheWORLD.  Thank you for spotlighting Service Shout Out.

The thoughts and opinions expressed here, are my own.  Mormon.org or LDS.org have not endorsed my thoughts, blog or products.
