Or­gan­ise birth­day par­ties or just part of it, like bak­ing the cake or plan­ning the games.

Run the an­nual Easter egg hunt with their god­child.

Scrap­book or blog about the child’s life.

Ar­range an an­nual pho­to­shoot and cre­ate an al­bum.

Take the child on a monthly out­ing to the zoo or the­atre.

Come to and par­tic­i­pate in all ma­jor fam­ily gath­er­ings.

En­joy qual­ity play­time with their god­child. With ba­bies, one-on-one in­ter­ac­tions are best.
