15 Easy Random Acts of Kindness for Kids

It’s time for the monthly Story Corner blog hop!

Since February is the month of love, I thought that would be a great theme to focus on, even if Valentine’s Day is over. The book that we read was Cuddle Bear by Claire Freedman. This is an adorable story about a small bear who just wants to cheer up his friends with a hug.

I love, love, LOVE the sweet illustrations in this book. They are gorgeous and just make you want to reach through the page to snuggle up with Cuddle Bear yourself.

When pondering what sort of activity would best accompany this book, I thought what better way to show love than to spend time serving others? 

So I’ve gathered together fifteen of the easiest but meaningful random acts of kindness for kids to perform for others so they can spread love and good cheer!
