Below is the next installment in the popular series on Random Acts of Kindness. Each month, a blogger shares the random acts of kindness they have committed with their little ones. You can visit the Random Acts of Kindness page to see previous installments of this series. You can also follow the Random Acts of Kindness Pinterest Board.  Today’s post comes to us from the wonderful Megan Sheakoski of Coffee Cups and Crayons.

We love doing acts of kindness at Coffee Cups and Crayons and are so excited to participate in the Random Acts of Kindness series! We love spreading kindness to the people we see each day and made a bag of love for my youngest’s preschool teacher.

Act of Kindness for Kids--Give a bag of LOVE!

My 3 year loves going to preschool and is always telling us about her teachers. She wanted to make a present for her main teacher and began by decorating a bag for her.

As she drew we talked about what she could put inside that would show her teacher how much she loved her. She decided to write all of the reasons she loved her and put them inside. I cut a bunch of paper hearts and she dictated what she wanted me to write on each one.

She put the hearts into a bag along with a little bit of candy and we stapled the top. Her teacher was surprised by the gift when we brought it in and loved reading all of the hearts my 3 year old had written. Making a bag of love was a simple little project that will make her teacher smile every time she reads the notes.

Getting kids involved in doing simple acts of kindness is a great way to show them how empowering helping others can be. You’re never too young to make a difference!
