Half Term Activity – Kindness with the Kids
Friday February 17th is Random Acts of Kindness Day but we are celebrating all week!
We all know kindness is good, but did you know it’s also good for you? Multiple studies have shown that kindness (fancy term: prosocial behaviour) decreases levels of stress hormones in adults and children. It lowers cortisol and blood pressure, reduces pain, anxiety, depression, and boosts our immune system. Kindness promotes feelings of inclusion and can decrease isolation in both givers and receivers of kind acts! Plus it’s FREE!
Random Acts of Kindness Day isn’t just for the grown ups, it’s a great way to talk to kids about kindness and empathy, and get them involved in (and busy) doing good! To celebrate kindness in all its forms, for half term week we are running a competition for kids of all ages to show us how many kind acts they can do over the break!
Here is the activity sheet:
