Try this yards of helpfulness project for kids and help good feelings grow by cleaning up a neighbor's yard.

What You'll Need:

  • Lawn mower
  • Rake
  • Weed trimmer
  • Work gloves
  • Trash bags
  • Ice water

Is your neighbor disabled? Overworked? Sick? Ask if you can help by taking care of some of the yard work. Once they say it's okay, why not mow the lawn? Rake the leaves? Pull those ugly weeds?

Not good with yard tools? Volunteer to babysit your neighbor's children as they do the difficult work. Offer to wash their dishes to free up a little extra time. Do what you can to grow some neighborly smiles and prove you care.

Don't forget to bring a big bottle of ice water with you when you volunteer; yard clean-up can be hot and thirsty work.
