Teaching and practicing kindness is vital to raising compassionate children. Creating and sharing art is an excellent way to bond and learn alongside your kids. Below are six crafts that offer opportunities to teach kindness.
1. A (Paper) Chain of Kindness
2. Kindness Postcards
3. Decorate a Kindness Jar
4. Mail a “Hug”
5. Cards for Care Packages for Sick Children
6. Paper Plate Flowers
To bring the teaching of kindness into your kindness craft sessions, you can share the finished products with local friends or those in need. Sharing homemade creations is an expression of love and giving.
