Last week I wrote all about how you can have a Montessori Christmas (read more here). I listed volunteering in your community as one of the ways to celebrate the holidays. I’d like to talk more about ways we can be thankful or show our children what kindness is with random acts of kindness for toddlers.
Have you heard of the phrase “random act of kindness”? I’m sure you have heard your friend say how someone paid for their Starbucks and then he paid it forward by buying the guy behind him his Starbucks. Well, this is a concept I thought would be nice for toddler’s as well. Obviously, toddlers don’t get Starbucks or have money for that matter so I decided to make a list that you can do with your toddler and they can do them as random acts of kindness.
You can choose one to do for the week or a day, it is really up to you and your toddler’s comprehension of the task. There are 31 items on the list so I suggest aiming for one a day for a whole month of kindness! What a better way to teach empathy, kindness, and compassion than to practice them every day for a whole month!
Have you practiced any of these random acts of kindness with your toddler before? I’d love to know more, let me know in the comments!
