WHEN YOU SEE A GOOD DEED, PUT IN A SEED!
This easy-to-use, colorful app encourages children to look for the good in other people and to see the good deeds that their friends and family are doing. Each time the child sees someone doing a mitzvah or good deed, they choose a seed, record what they saw, and drag it into an empty pomegranate, filling it up with a collection of good deeds that can be saved and viewed at any time. As they fill up the pomegranate with these seeds, they come closer to the concept of “Love your neighbor as yourself”.
How many times do your children come and tell you about the bad things that their siblings or friends are doing? This app helps parents encourage children to start seeing all the good that people do around them. Click here for the family resource guide to the Mitzvah Hunt.
