Raise your hand if you know any kids that love animals? Or nature?
Yep. Me too. In fact being outdoors in the fresh air while learning about our native environment is one of my kids’ favorite things to do. We love to explore our parks and on a recent trip to one of our local state parks we noticed just how hard working and kind the rangers were. It’s not easy taking care of wildlife and nature some days. I know I like to stay inside when it’s wet and rainy or hot and humid so I appreciate those who work tirelessly in any type of weather.
We decided to write our park rangers a thank you note to tell them just how much we love what they do. They are one community helper that we’ve never done an act of kindness for yet! Have you?
Week 2 Kindness Challenge
We are in the middle of the 100 acts of kindness project and challenging are you to write and mail a thank you note to rangers who protect our wildlife spaces! It’s a simple but heartfelt way to be kind to the environment and a community helper at the same time.
- crayons, pencils, pens, markers, etc
- copies of the Printable Thank You Note
- address of park ranger
- stamp for each address being used
Thank You Note Kindness Challenge
There really is no wrong way to complete this challenge! All you need to do is chose which park rangers you are going to write to and write a sweet note of thanks. You can use this free printable thank you note to make it easier for younger kids or even just have them draw a picture. Anything you send will be greatly appreciated by the rangers.
If you have never been to a local, state or national park and don’t think your kids will relate to this challenge no problem! Substitute another community helper in for a ranger. Saying thank you is the act of kindness we are focusing on this week so sharing gratitude is the important thing.
