GET GODPARENTS INVOLVED BY ASKING THEM TO…
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.
Babysit while you and hubby are out on a date night, for instance.
Teach the child new skills. Older godparents might share their love of nearly forgotten skills such as knitting or crocheting.
Take the child on a monthly outing to the zoo or theatre.
Come to and participate in all major family gatherings.
Create their own godparent rituals. They could treat the child to ice cream at the beach after an afternoon together.
Enjoy quality playtime with their godchild. With babies, one-on-one interactions are best.
