Do you want your kids to learn kindness and service like I do? I want my kids to naturally desire to show love and kindness to others around them. Sometimes I feel like I am not doing enough service activities with my kids. We have the most adorable book from Usborne called Do Nice, Be Kind, Spread Happy by Bernadette Russell. This book is full of acts of kindness kids can do for others. We decided to explore the book and try out a few for ourselves.
Yesterday we went to a local museum and thought it would be the perfect place to try out some of the acts of kindness we found in the book. The kids wanted to leave kind notes on people’s cars.
During lunch, before we went to the museum the kids got out paper, markers and stickers and set to work making a whole bunch of notes to brighten people’s day.
When we got to the museum, the kids ran around the parking lot and put the notes on people’s windshields. They were so excited about it and had a lot of fun!
Another idea in the book was to give someone a book you love. My son wrote a note on the book telling whoever found it that they could keep it, read it, and pass it along in the same way. He left it somewhere in the children’s museum. I love that he was being generous with something he really liked.
This book is packed full of fun ideas like these ones! We are having a great time doing acts of kindness for our friends, family, and strangers. I love having new ideas of how to serve others in a simple way.
