The power of kindness calendar helps children (aged 7 to 11) learn about and carry out kind acts. Using the blank kindness calendar, you and your class can think about kind acts they can do during the month. Perhaps they will be more helpful at home, be respectful and supportive to their classmates or send a recognition card to help someone feel valued. 

You can introduce your class to the notion of kindness and the British Red Cross with our PowerPoint presentation. It is a short presentation encouraging children to think about the power of kindness and the work of the Red Cross.
