How to Get Your Kids Involved in Random Acts of Kindness Day

homemade craftsOne of the sweetest days of the year – Random Acts of Kindness Day – is here! February 17 is the day that millions of people across America will do intentional acts of kindness for friends and strangers with the hopes of putting a smile on their faces.

Doing a sweet, random act of kindness doesn’t have to be overwhelming. Take a look at several ways your kiddos can take part in this special day:

Donate Gently-Used Clothes & Toys

Ask your kids to go through their clothes and toys and pick out items that they don’t use anymore. Then pile all the items into boxes and take it to a local shelter or Goodwill. On the way, you can explain to them how their clothes and toys will help others! This is a great way to teach them about giving back to the community and a simple and easy way to declutter your home.

Send Homemade Cards to Family Members

Do you have family members that don’t get to see your sweet kids often? Bring out the construction paper and crayons and let your children decorate a card to send to Grandma and Grandpa. The kids will enjoy this creative activity, and your family members will love receiving a homemade card from your little ones. (A win-win activity!)

Practice Saying Please & Thank You

If your children are young, they may not realize how important manners are in everyday life. Encourage them to practice their manners by saying please and thank you, holding doors open for people, and taking turns. (You can even make manners fun by implementing these thank you activities!)

After your kids celebrate Random Acts of Kindness Day, bring them to Skateland! They will love racing around the rink, getting great exercise, and enjoying unstructured playtime. Contact us today if you have any questions.
