Power of kindness calendar
Find out how your primary school can count down to the end of term with our kindness calendar.
- 7 - 11
- Quick activity
- Humanitarianism and the Red Cross
The power of kindness calendar helps children (aged 7 to 11) learn about and carry out kind acts during the month of December. Each day is linked to a short kindness activity that can be used at the start of the day, or as an energiser during the day, with each activity lasting approximately ten minutes.
By taking part in the power of kindness calendar activities, children will:
- learn about the power of kindness
- carry out kind acts
- consider how they can be kind to themselves and others
- learn about humanitarian actions such as coping, helping and welcoming others.
