Inside: Use these kindness coloring pages to help fight boredom and encourage kindness while kids color these kindness coloring sheets.
When my kids were little, we couldn’t go far without coloring books and boatloads of crayons because not only did they love to color, it also kept them busy and focused.
We had coloring books for every superhero and every princess and cartoon character and triangle crayons and finger crayons and we wouldn’t go into a restaurant or doctor’s office without them.
And now that my kids are older and turned most of their crayons in for markers, they still love to color.
But instead of coloring Batman and Strawberry Shortcake, we often color messages that inspire and uplift to reinforce the message of kindness.
I want my kids to remember to be kind, even when I’m not there to remind them, even when they’re doing something as fun and simple as coloring.
And for that, we use these Kindness Coloring Sheets.
Why it’s Important to Raise Kind Kids
We’re raising our kids to be kind and it’s so important to us, it’s one of our only two family rules.
We work hard to make it happen because when kindness becomes a habit, it makes our home a calmer, happier, more peaceful place to be.
And since kindness is contagious, my kids’ kindness encourages others to also be kind.
As an added bonus, science has proven that kind people are happier people.
We use this sibling ice cream challenge to encourage sibling kindness and decrease sibling rivalry.
And we use these kindness coloring pages to encourage even more kindness. They’re perfect for home and for school.
