World Kindness Day is on the 13th of November is , but it’s always a good time to celebrate kindness.
Why kindness matters
Did you know that, when we do something kind, it triggers a release of serotonin in the brain? Not only does serotonin reduce anxiety and stress, but it also boosts happiness, helps our bodies fight infections and even speeds up healing.
Doing kind things as a group makes us feel connected to each other, and fosters a more inclusive and positive environment. So, with that in mind, here are 6 ideas for kindness activities to spread a little love in your classroom.
Kindness Day activities for all ages
Make a kindness paper chain: Ask your group to write down any acts of kindness they see at school on a slip of paper for two weeks. Then, you’ll have enough paper to create a paper chain that’s a striking reminder of the impact of kind deeds.
Set your class a daily kindness challenge: This could be something as straightforward as paying someone a compliment, holding the door, or picking up litter.
If you’re looking to reward and encourage your student’s kind acts, then you’ll definitely want to look at our kindness stickers. Check them out on our website
