This is awesome!! How is Char getting on with her RAKs? What kinds of things have you put on the slips? I just love that idea - it's like Brownie Guides doing a good turn every day.

How lovely.

I wish Nora had included the random acts of kindness that she came up with! It's so hard to think of things kids can do while still being stranger-safe.

Why thank you Rosey! I did that calendar at the last minute and the random acts are tough because they had to be things she could easily do. My random acts of kindness were age appropriate and very simple. Here are some of the things I have included:

1. Say hi to someone that is in your class but you don't know very well.

2. Say thank you to every teacher as you leave the classroom

3. Smile at everyone you meet today. You never know who might need that smile!!

4. Compliment someone at school.

5. Give someone a helping hand

6. Write a note to send to someone you don't see every day

7. Give someone (meaning your mother) a hug today

8. Smuggle a note into your father's lunch telling him you love him

9. Hold the door open for someone at school today

and then some specific to her that were more random acts of kindness FOR ME

10. Practice your instrument for 15 minutes without your parents having to nag you to do it

11. Empty the garbages throughout the house without anyone asking you to do it

12. Fold whatever laundry is in the dryer

13. Make a card for someone and send it

14. Bake something and give some to Mrs. H next door

15. Call your grandmother today and tell her you love her

I then repeated some. I know they might sound corny but it is kind of funny how excited she gets over them.

Absolutely inspired! I am SO doing this for my niece and nephew next year. I might use matchboxes or something though, because I don't think they're quite old enough or have wall-space for a picture frame each. But the concept is amazing.

I'm really glad that Char is excited about it. It sounds as if you've got through to her. Well done you!

And thank you for sharing!
