Happy Random Acts of Kindness Week! I know it officially started a couple days ago, but it’s never too late to start an act of kindness. In my last couple of years as a teacher I had my students do random acts of kindness and either write about it or take photos so we could make bulletin boards and highlight what we had done in our community. Students, parents, and teachers alike really enjoyed seeing what others were doing and how it fostered a friendly competition on who was being the most thoughtful 🙂 Below are a few ideas for random acts you can do in your neighborhood and you can download these cute tags to leave behind here.
- Leave money in a vending machine
- Buy a coffee for a person ahead or behind you in line
- Leave money in a stranger’s meter
- Pick up litter
- Return the grocery carts in the parking lot
- Give a stranger a compliment
- Bake cookies for someone – or consider your local police or firehouse
- Hold the door open for someone
- Leave letters of encouragement in a public place
- Mow/rake//shovel the lawn for your neighbor
