It’s important to not only to teach our kids to be kind but also to celebrate the kindness we see in them and others.
Just as you would cheer for winning a sports game or being chosen for a geography bee doing good is also something that should be praised and encouraged.
You may be thinking, “but I want my kids to be kind because it’s the right thing to do. Not for a party.”
But hear me out for a second.
When we celebrate something we are showing that it is valuable and important. Kindness is valuable and important.
Kristina from Toddler Approved and I are constantly inspired by the good you all are doing as part of the 100 acts of kindness project. We want to celebrate YOU and have created a free printable kindness certificate for you to use with your kids.
It’s time to celebrate all of the kind things you have done of the last couple of weeks!
100 Acts of Kindness Certificate
Working hard toward a goal of 100 acts of kindness with your family or class is a valuable and important goal and celebrating their hard work confirms that for kids.
Does that mean you shouldn’t set an expectation of kindness and caring for kids? Definitely not.
Kids should be intentional about doing good and being kind. We want it to become a lifelong habit. But celebrating the good you see in the world and the good you do in the world is a great way to cultivate a culture of kindness.
How to use the 100 Acts of Kindness Certificate:
- Plan your kindness celebration.
- Download the file below. You can choose from color or black and white certificates and from half page or full page certificates. My sister at Modern Preschool designed them for us and gave you lots of options based on what works best for you!
- Print whichever certificate suits you best.
- Hand them out to the kids at the kindness celebration!
Make a point to say something specific about each kid and how they completed the 100 Acts of Kindness Project. It will go a long way toward encouraging a habit of kindness.
