4 ways to teach kids about kindness this Valentine’s Day

Reading Time: < 1 minute 

Celebrate the month of love by sharing kindness with your family, friends and community! Here are four simple ways to spread kindness this Valentine’s.

  1. Watch Charlie Brown’s Caring Tree and then complete this sweet activity to create your own caring tree. The new video is part of the Take Care With Peanuts initiative, a global multi-year enterprise encouraging everyone to take care — of themselves, each other and the Earth. The video is available on family.gonoodle.com Feb. 9-15. More videos will be released throughout 2021.
  2. Our hospital workers are overwhelmed and exhausted. Help lift spirits at local hospitals by putting together a snack basket, donating a meal or writing a thank you note to show your appreciation to these frontline heroes working hard to care for others in need.
  3. Share love and affirmation with your family members. Create a jar for each member in your household and fill them up with special notes and uplifting words the reaffirm a positive perspective and highlight individual strengths.
  4. Host a virtual storytime with friends or cousins and read inspiring children’s books like The Invisible Boy by Trudy Ludwig, Horton Hears A Who by Dr. Seuss or The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein.
