Help set up and tear down the nets for youth soccer, and pick up trash after the games.
30 minutes total
Our girls are playing soccer this year. Whichever teams arrive first and play last have to set up and tear down the goals. Today, one girl was at a crack of foggy morning game, the other at the end of sunny afternoon. Sure, there are OTHER parents who could've done this, but why should we leave it to them?
We couldn't figure out WHICH of the six fields our girls were playing on, so we just started setting up goals. Turns out we set up two of the fields our girls would NOT be using. GOOD THING other parents came! It would've taken the two of us a LONG time to get all that stuff in place. (And, man, are those goals heavy!)
Afterward, there was a bit of trash around, so I picked up all that I could find and delivered it to the bins. One less thing for the janitor to do - and gripe about - in the morning.
