Read this story about Mrs. Mark’s Gingersnap Cookies on giving. Then ask mom if she’d help you bake some Gingersnap Cookies that could be shared with a neighbour.

Draw pictures/words of hope and hang in your front windows for people to see OR using sidewalk chalk draw on your driveway words/pictures of hope, all to give people a smile and let them know we are all in this together.

Remember to keep your distance (a hockey stick length) from anyone who comes walking by while your drawing outside.
