Printable Kindness Activity Sheets for Children
With the rush of everyday life constantly weighing on us, it’s easy to forget what are truly important: The small happy moments and the people we share them with. Especially during stressful times, taking a minute to reflect on the things that truly matter can help put situations in perspective.
It’s especially important for young children to understand the power of what they say and do. That’s why teaching kids to be kind towards others is just as important as teaching other life skills. This ensures they grow up to be resilient and empathetic adults, who ultimately help make the world a better place.
These helpful printables by Mint are a fun way to get children involved in kindness activities, and they even work long distance! There’s a collection of compliment cards for kids to cut out and give to their friends, family, and teachers. Though they may need a bit of encouragement at first, once they see the smile they can put on someone’s face, they’ll happily find more ways to spread kindness. There are also signs that you can display at home or in a classroom that reminds us all to be kind.
Though life looks a little different right now, the most important things are still right at our fingertips: The people that matter to us and the moments we share with them. Even if only long-distance, or for a few minutes, putting a smile on someone else’s face can change the mood both of your entire days.
