Being kind not only supports others it helps us feel good too. Kindness makes challenges easier to cope with and improves wellbeing.

This engaging activity pack helps children ages 5 to 14 learn about the power of kindness. It encourages them to do small acts of kindness each day to help their community, family, and themselves.

You can download a digital version of the 20-page kindness activity pack to use with your class or youth group. 

About the Red Cross' kindness activity pack for children 

Our kindness activity pack includes: 

  • A kindness calendar for children: helps them think about the importance of kindness and how small acts of kindness can make a big difference.
  • A blank postcard to encourage children to create a message of kindness for someone they know.
  • Creative kindness activities: colouring is a great way to be kind to yourself and helps children to focus and relax.
  • Coping strategies: using activities like breathing with colour and 'What is wellbeing?' to offer ways young people can be kind to themselves.
  • An emotion tracker to help manage emotions and feelings as we all go through change and stressful circumstances.
  • Activities to help us stay connected with others. Children will think about and understand other people’s feelings and explore how change can affect us.
  • The final kindness activity encourages children to learn a new skill. They’ll practice some simple first aid and reflect on how learning new skills can make you feel.
