6 Tips To Help Moms Find Time For School Volunteering
Moms struggle with finding time to do the things they need to everyday. There never seems to be time for themselves let alone free time to go ‘hang out’ at their kids school. One thing moms need to realize that ‘hanging out’ at school matters. Not only does it show your child a positive example of giving back, but your presence will have a positive effect on your child for years.
No matter how busy your day is, there are ways you can make time that fits within your busy schedule.

Reach Out to Your Child’s Teacher
Volunteer for a Day
Offer Your Skills as a One-Time Volunteer
Here are some ways that you can use your skills or hobbies to help your child’s school.
- Help plant a class or school garden.
- Use your photo skills.
- Volunteer in a school or classroom computer lab.
- Supervise or judge experiments at a science fair.
- Help with visual arts, crafts, and design projects.
Remember, the time you spend at your child’s school counts and creates lasting memories for your child AND YOU!
