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 my friend Jaime of Frogs & Snails & Puppy Dog Tail. She is not only an amazing blogger, she has also created All Things Kids, a wonderful online community for sharing kids’ activities and crafts!
We recently had fun with some Dinosaur Paintings. I was having a hard time coming up with a simple idea for a random act of kindness for us to try. When I looked down at those paintings inspiration struck. Making simple homemade cards to give out would be perfect. This was something the kids could get involved in making and giving out to others. Homemade Kindness Cards to spread a little sunshine and love here we come.
What we used:
paintings the kids had already made
printed out notes
What we did:
I cut small cards out of the paintings the kids had already made a few days before. I made little printouts for the cards on picmonkey. I cut those out. My kids glued those into the cards.
Now we had simple yet oh so cute Kindness Cards to give out. We mailed kisses to family and dropped off sunshine in neighbors mailboxes.
Off to deliver sunshine to the neighbors was a fun treat. The kids could not wait to start putting cards in the mailboxes. We hope that just one card found the right person and the right moment to brighten their day. Instilling a kind heart in my children is a big deal to me. Being kind to others does not have to be a big grand gesture, a simple act of kindness (like these homemade kindness cards), goes a long way.
We hope you too might enjoy making cards to brighten someone else’s day too. There are so many simple, yet wonderful ways to show kindness to others. What are some of your favorites?
Remember there’s no such thing as a small act of kindness. Every act creates a ripple with no logical end.
