Use this acts of kindness for kids FREE printable kindness calendar to teach your kiddos how to easily spread kindness to others!
“Kindness, it causes nothing but means everything!” Amen!
With all the anger and meanness in the world today, I strongly believe we can spread love by showing any amount of kindness towards others.
And the best time for any human being to learn about being kind is from the youngest age possible. But it’s never too late to teach kindness and to change people’s hearts.
Having kids do random acts of kindness is a great way to teach how easy it is to spread kindness in small ways.
So today I have a free printable 30 days of kindness calendar that your child can mark off when each item is complete and also a list of 10 books that teach your kids about kindness.
How to Teach Kids About Kindness
One of the easiest ways to teach kids about kindness is by example. Little ones especially watch what their parents and older siblings do and are curious about everything.
Simply talking to them about what you are doing for others and why is a great way to begin the conversation.
Or if you see someone else being kind out in public, point it out to your child and ask them how they would feel if someone did that to them.
The acts of kindness for kids chart below is a great starting point to give kids ideas of how to spread love and kindness to family, siblings, neighbors, and even strangers.
Tips for the Acts of Kindness for Kids Chart
This acts of kindness calendar can be used anytime! It does not have dates on it so you can use it for any month or anytime during the month.
So you don’t need to start at the beginning of the month or during advent!
After the child has completed a task they can put a sticker on the box, a stamp, or just cross it off. A lot of kids loving putting stickers on a chart!
You can print multiple 30 days of kindness calendars out to do a few times a year or you can laminate one and use a dry erase marker to check them off and keep track. Then you can reuse it whenever you want!
If the act of kindness activity doesn’t apply to your child, brain storm with them a new one. You can even cut a white square out of a piece of paper, write it on and glue it on top of that square.
This calendar also pairs great with our empathy worksheets.
