January Goal Setting

National Random Acts of Kindness Day

The 17th of February in 2018 is a date to be kind because it's Random Acts of Kindness Day. This is an unofficial holiday in the USA. It aims to encourage people for acts of goodness and kindness.

100 Acts of Kindness for Kids

Doing acts of kindness is one of the best activities you can do with your kids. It’s a great way to bond as a family, a lot of fun and teaches kids about compassion and service.

Any act of kindness no matter how big or small can make a difference–especially when done intentionally. Here are 100 acts of kindness for kids that you and your family can do together!

As parents, there are so many things we are thankful for, and we tend to reflect on those blessings this time of year. How can we possibly help our children understand that even the smallest of us can make a huge difference in another person’s life? Listed below are some suggestions of random act of kindness activities that even the youngest child could do to show friendliness, gratitude, consideration and generosity.

Our hope is these small acts start a conversation about giving and gratitude with our kids, and that these small acts inspire us to do more for those around us.

We would love to see your little ones in action!
