We read books that illustrate how one small act can change someone’s day, or even their life. The younger children read Because Brian Hugged His Mother (K/1) and the older children read Somebody Loves You, Mr Hatch (2-5).
Listen to the song Drop in the Bucket by Rebecca Vincent.
Challenge each person to 5 small acts of kindness. At the end of the day, check in and see how it went.
Have you ever noticed how one small kindness has made someone’s day? How does it make you feel when someone shows you kindness? We call it a “ripple effect” when one small kindness spreads to others also doing acts of kindness. Can you picture how your kindness ripples out?
