Reality is that we hear the phrase "I'm bored" way too often during 'down time' of holidays or summer break!
Instead of the parents (that's us) working trying to fill the day, let's get our kids working on helping others and being kind. As we do acts of kindness, gratitude grows, entitlement diminishes, and kindness ripples out into the community. Total win for everyone here!
Each day for 4 weeks, you will have access to videos, acts of kindness prompts, and tips and know-how from experienced Kindness Camp Counselors. Use these ideas with your own kids or gather the neighborhood together for a good time in helping others.
Topics for the Upcoming 2017 Virtual Kindness Summer Camp include:
Summer Acts of Kindness
Helping the Homeless
Reaching Out to the Elderly
Crafty Acts of Kindness
Parenting with Kindness
Additionally, campers that enroll in the Virtual Kindness Summer Camp will have access to give-aways through the course as well as a private Facebook group where we can connect, ask questions, share ideas, and cheer each other on in our mission to raise kind kids.
Engaged kids, more kindness, happier families!
