This Spring Kindness Challenge is a fun and simple way to encourage our kids to spread kindness this spring. There are 4 activities for March, April, and May.
Spring is a time for renewal. Of freshness and fresh air and fresh new rainboots.
So it’s the perfect time to spread kindness in the world.
We can spread kindness to our neighbors, to safe strangers and in our own homes.
Our kids can go looking for rainbows and leprechauns and Easter eggs and look for ways to spread kindness.
These Spring Kindness Activities for kids will help you find easy ways to speak and act with kindness more often.
Why should we have a kindness challenge?
We are raising our kids to be kind.
But we can’t just cross our fingers and hope it happens.
We have to intentionally make it happen.
We talk about kindness, model kindness and praise kindness.

We remind them to speak and act with kindness by making it one of our only two family rules.
We can volunteer with them to show them how easy it is to give.
In our family, we encourage both big and small acts of kindness.
We brought Kindness Elves into our home to inspire more acts of kindness.
We read books about kindness like these:
And we play Tic Tac Toe Kindness and Fidget Spinner Kindness.
But each season, we also do a Kindness Challenge like this Summer Kindness Challenge, Fall Kindness Challenge, and Winter Kindness Challenge.
So now that it’s spring, we’re changing it up to kindness activities perfect for March, April, and May.
