Kids for Kindness: Happy Notes

Happy Random Acts of Kindness Week!  We have challenged ourselves and others to do weekly acts of kindness during 2013 and I love the impact that focusing on kindness has had for our family.  So, I’m sure you can guess how excited I was when Lauren from Tutus and Tea Parties asked if I wanted to give her Kids for Kindness Challenge this week.

Lauren shares weekly kindness prompts that you can do with your family and invites families to  share what they’ve done using the hashtag #kidsforkindness.  So, without further ado here it is…

RAK #7: Pass out Happy Notes

Spread a little kindness by making and leaving little notes for someone else to find.  The notes can be for members of your family, neighbors, or just random strangers.

Acts of Kindness for Kids: Pass out Happy Notes

We wrote ours on post-it notes and then stuck them around town.  Even my youngest could participate by drawing on the notes and my older two loved coming up with the sayings.  This would be a great way to cheer up someone in your own family who could use a little kindness too.  Think of how fun it would be to walk into the bathroom to brush your teeth and see a bunch of Happy Notes!

    Such a sweet idea and I completely love how you’ve involved your kids. I’m working on my own random act of kindness. I’m painting some beach stones I’ve collected and I plan to leave them along a beach path I run on. I’ll have to get my two year-old involved and have him put out the stones along the path. I remembered someone doing something similar last year when I found several rocks on that same path with inspirational words written on them. Glad to have found your site!

      That is a fantastic idea! I love that you are passing it on! One of the little girls in my daughter’s class came to school the next day so excited about how her and her brother had found one of our happy notes! She had no idea that we had left them. It was made my daughter’s whole week!
