Celebrate May Day by making a super-easy basket to deliver goodies on May 1st. This lovely tradition is a thoughtful way to spread kindness to neighbors and friends. Follow these instructions for making and decorating your basket. Fill your creations with flowers, sweets or little trinkets, then drop them at your neighbors’ doorstep or deliver them to a nearby care facility.

Talk to your child: How would it feel to receive a May Day basket from someone? Why is it important to do small things for those in our community?
