How is it possible that summer vacation is almost over? Make the most out of the rest of summer break by spreading some love. Have fun and be kind!
Here is a recap of our Week 8 of our Summer of Kindness:
Day 50 of Kids Boost Summer Of Kindness: Did you know there are 2 ways you can support Kids Boost through shopping? First, make us your designated charity on Amazon Smile. Second, we have a wish list of items that help us empower kids to give. Check it out:http://www.amazon.com/
Day 51 of Kids Boost Summer Of Kindness: go ding dong ditching. Be prepared: this will bring lots of smiles to those doing and receiving the ditching. Grab a few boxes of Ding Dongs and have your kids write the notes. Just as it gets dark, have your child leave the treat, ring the doorbell and run!!! Spread some smiles tonight!
Day 52 of Kids Boost Summer Of Kindness: Find new purpose for an old item. Get creative and have fun with it. Instead of creating more trash, create something fun or beautiful. This is an empty essential oils jar that could have been tossed. Instead, it’s now a beautiful tiny vase. Be kind to the earth, recycle and reuse!
Day 53 of Kids Boost Summer Of Kindness: Create placemats for Meals on Wheels or Blessings in a Backpack. Both of these wonderful organizations get food to those in need. How fun would it be to also receive homemade placemats with messages of hope and love? We love the homemade woven placemats (just search in Pinterest or the web) for all ages because they can be made simple or pretty extravagant but they look cool regardless (and they are made with love). Have fun, get creative and spread love!
Day 54 of Kids Boost Summer Of Kindness: Donate school supplies to kids in need. Grab your kids and pick out a few things… or a backpack full of the things kids need to be successful in school. Don’t forget about the teens…. it’s so easy to pick the cute stuff for little ones but remember how important it is for teenagers to have the necessities too!
Day 55 of Kids Boost Summer Of Kindness: Celebrate Christmas in July. Share a festive treat with a neighbor. Have a “snowball” (water balloon) fight with friends. Drop off a “just because” gift to a grandparent. Decorate cookies for the fire department. Make a day of it… make memories, share smiles and spread love.
Day 56 of Kids Boost Summer Of Kindness: As the new school year starts, it’s the perfect time to make a pledge of kindness. Pick something important to you and make a year-long pledge to just “do better and be better.” It could be pledging to make new students feel welcome at school. Or pledging to volunteer more. Or not use plastic straws. Or to only speak to your brother with kind words. What’s important to YOU and what can YOU do to bring more kindness to the world?
Spread love, spread smiles! Have fun!!!
