The world can always do with more kindness, so we’ve come up with some acts of kindness that you could challenge your children to do.
Children are naturally compassionate, so why not foster their inherent kindness and encourage them to pass it on to their peers? Their good deed could make someone’s entire day!
- Help your parents with household chores
- Tell someone a joke to make them laugh
- Offer to cook or bake something for your family
- Tell someone why you’re thankful for them
- Say hi to someone you wouldn’t usually speak to
- Pick up some rubbish you see in the street
- Hold the door open for someone
- Call your grandparents or elderly relatives and have a chat
- Let someone go in front of you in the lunch queue at school
- Plant something in your garden
- If someone looks left out in the playground, invite them to play with you
- Make a kindness jar for someone
- Send a postcard to a friend
- Smile at as many people as you can
- Make a homemade gift for someone
Remember, a small act of kindness can make a big difference to someone!
