How to Spread Valentine’s Kindness with Your Kids
Each year we try to spend a month doing random acts of kindness, last year it was in the month of December. This year we are spreading joy in a fun way with a Valentine’s 24 Acts of Kindness Countdown.
Choose the amount of time or days of valentines you want to spend. It can be as easy as a batch of cookies for police officers, a big hug for grandma, or even care packages for others. You get to pick how much to do. A little bit can do a long way when you’re being kind.
Spreading kindness to others can be something as small as a little note to say “hi” or making a pretty picture from scrapbook paper. The free printables include a preplanned and diy calendar. The fill in calendar can be a great activity for your kids to brainstorm some fun ways to make others feel special.
