Be Kind This World Kindness Day

Happy World Kindness Day! World Kindness Day was established in 1998 by the World Kindness Movement to show kindness for a fairer, better world. Kids can take part by doing random acts of kindness - big or small - which benefit everybody. Not only does it help other people feel good, but it helps your child enjoy the feel-good factor, too.

When Is World Kindness Day?

World Kindness Day is on 13th November every year. It's a day to celebrate good deeds and acts of kindness. 

What Can Kids Do For World Kindness Day?

  • Kindness Postcards - Little hands can make creative designs on postcards with coloured pencils or metallic crayons. Turn the postcard over and write a lovely sentence about kindness.
  • Bake Cookies For Elderly Relatives or Neighbours - Put on your Chef's apron and roll out the cookie dough! Chocolate chip cookies are bound to put a smile on someone's face and make their day.
  • Shop Local - Support the local community and small businesses by buying local produce and products. 
  • Write Down The Things You Love About Someone - Let someone know you love them with a kind letter - Don't forget to seal it with a kiss!
  • Cycle - Hop on a bike or trike instead of going in the car.
  • Clean Your Room - Help the grown-ups out by having a quick clean and tidy up. Psst, you might want to use our Cleaning Set to get things looking spick and span.
  • Make New Friends - When the kids are playing out in the street, go and join in and get to know them.
  • Smile - A smile costs nothing and brings lots of joy.
  • Tell A Joke - Laughter is the best medicine.
  • Help A Friend With Their Work - Are one of your school friends struggling? Help them with their work.

Kindness Crafts

Kindness Paper Chain

Not only does this make a pretty room decoration, but it's also easy-peasy. Kids simply need to write down any acts of kindness that happened during the week. Then, link the pieces of paper together to make a colourful, kind chain. How long will it grow?

Chalk Messages

Take children outside to draw up funky designs and kind words on the driveway, pavement or school playground with coloured chalks.

Compliments Jar

Write some compliments down and scrunch them up and put them into the jar. Each morning to start your day right, pull a compliment from the jar!

Jewellery Kit

Make a special token for the ladies (and men) in your life. Mini jewellery designers can craft a colourful funky necklace from super clay. Lightweight and air-drying, there's no baking required!

Reward Kindness

When your child does an act of kindness, make sure you give them recognition. Whether it's praising them verbally or making them a physical reward - like a certificate. Kids love to be recognised for their efforts and good deeds. It's a great confidence booster too, to see and hear praise for being kind.
