Acts of Kindness – Fun activities to transform someone’s day!

On 19th Aug 2008, I took part in the ‘Great Kindness Challenge’. The ‘Acts of Kindness’ are not only fun activities, they can positively impact someone’s day. Do them for a family member, a friend, teachers, police, fireman – best of all, for random strangers. It is so great to see so many people smile because of something I did.

Do them one at a time, one a day – or even set yourself a ‘Great Kindness Challenge’ to see how many you can do in a day!

Listed below are loads of fun ‘Acts of Kindness’ activities for kids and parents to do together. HAVE FUN 🙂
