Lovely lockdown kindness Random Acts of Kindness Ideas For Kids

During the first lockdown, my kids decorated cardboard heart wreaths with positive messages and when we went on our walk, we tied them to people’s front gates.

Lots of people posted in our local group saying they had found them and it had brightened their day. Www.Coffeecakekids.Com

We took the opportunity to use our crafting skills and we created pictures using all things cheery … glitter,sunshine, rainbows and then more glitter! We then sent them to the children’s grandmothers care home to be distributed to the residents. We received some beautiful photos of the residents with their pictures and the impact it made on their day was clear to see. Just wonderful. http://Www.bestlodgeswithhottubs.co.uk

We have printed colouring sheets and coloured them before sending to our local nursing and residential homes www.boorooandtiggertoo.com
