Below: Random Act of Kindness week falls in February but can (and should) be celebrated any time of the year. The best part is involving your kids. With the help of this post, you can easily do that, check these random acts of kindness for kids.
One of my favorite times of year has always been Random Acts of Kindness Week. It usually falls around Valentine’s Day. It’s the perfect time to break up the monotony of the cold, winter months and focus on bringing joy to others.
Children love participating in RAK (random acts of kindness) week. Naturally, children want to be kind to others. It’s as we get older, we start to feel self-conscious. Feed your child’s sense of helping others as much as possible now.
There are so many different ideas for kids to participate in Random Acts of Kindness. We don’t, of course, have to limit it to this one week each February. But it’s a great reason to make it an intentional practice.
I’ve included some great ideas from around the web below.
