A couple of weeks ago, I shared 25 ideas for random acts of kindness for your husband. Today, I’ve got 30 more random acts of kindness for kids. I may or may not have indicated that there would be two more lists – one for young kids and one for teens. Then, I may or may not have gotten crazy busy, run out of time, and combined it all into one list for kids, tweens, and teens.
But we won’t discuss that. Real life, y’all. I’m sure you can think of some things to add to this list – that’s what the comments are for. With your help, we can brainstorm a fantastic list to let our kids know they’re loved.
1. Take them out for one-on-one breakfast dates. We’ve been doing this for probably close to a year now and I had no idea how much my kids would love it. If breakfast doesn’t work for you, you could try lunch, dinner, or a dessert date. You could even do an in-house date, waking one child earlier than the others, letting one stay up later, or just having your meal or snack away from everyone else.
2. Do their least favorite household chore for them.
10. Build a snowman or have a snowball fight despite the fact that you don’t like being cold and wet. If there’s no snow at your house, have an indoor snowball fight with socks.
