What better way to bring in the New Year than by performing Random Acts of Kindness with children. Random Acts of Kindness bring smiles to both the giver and the receiver’s face, and that, in itself, makes it all worth it!
Next week, a friend and I will be taking our children to perform Random Acts of Kindness over their school break. Here is a list of the things I will have my children do:
– deliver hand drawn cards/pictures to a nursing home
– put $1 on a gift card at Target and hand it to someone in line
– put $1.25 in a ziploc and tape it (and a note) to a coke machine
– buy coffee for the car behind you at the coffee shop
– leave a stamp and a note in a ziploc by the mailbox, inside the post office
– arrange a day to paint fingernails at a local nursing home
– hand out balloons with happy notes attached to strangers who pass by at a shopping center
– find a busy store and open the door for everyone who enters/exits (for 10 minutes)
– return shopping carts for ten customers
– make a “thank you” poster for someone and hang it in a (public) place where they will see it
– write a note about a great employee and hand it to the manager
Do you have any suggestions for my list? Would you like to join us on this challenge next week?
