Over the past few months, I have partnered with @staplesto help encourage kindness in the classroom. Jack started kindergarten at about the same time. It has been a great opportunity and reminder for me to help foster kindness in him among his peers (which, fortunately, Jack has been blessed with a kind heart, so it hasn’t been too hard). I do believe that kindness begins at home - and that will transfer to the classroom. We decided to put together this little video with some simple acts of kindness you can do with your kids (and we have even more on the blog - link in bio). After your child has done something kind, you can go to StaplesKindnessTree.com, where they can put what they did, and it is added as a leaf - it shows that one act of kindness is part of a bigger picture. Kindness - no matter how small the act is - has the power to change the world... especially when a child is involved. #staplesforstudents#kindnessrocks#kindnessmatters#kindnesswins#randomactsofkindness#kindergarten#kindergartenmom#kindergartenlife#sharegoodness#bethegood#boymom#momofboys#lighttheworld
Monsters, you helped Lady Gaga, Born This Way Foundation, and Staples raise more than $272,000 in donations for DonorsChoose.org. Through the#staplesforstudentsprogram 1,181 classroom projects were funded on DonorsChoose.org this back-to-school season. That includes 832 teachers and 103,706 students who have felt the impact of your kindness. Staples is still counting with more than $375,000 going to the DonorsChoose.org Hurricane Harvey Recovery Fund to help local teacher at storm-damaged schools. Thank you for your kindness!
The other day, I was playing Candy Land with Jack. I was rather far behind him (I kept picking up the special cards that would send me back further and further), when he said, 'Mommy, you can take another turn. I want you to catch up'. At first, I started to tell him that is not how the game worked, but I realized at that moment he was trying to be kind in a way that he knew how. I took my second turn, and he was able to be kind. (ad) How often do we stop our kids - or even ourselves - from doing something kind out of convenience or principal? I encourage us to always allow those kind thoughts from our kids to happen. The more they have the opportunity to be kind, the more they will continue to do it. Make sure to let them put their acts of kindness on the Kindness Tree from Staples - it shows how just one act of kindness can make such a big difference! www.stapleskindnesstree.com #staplesforstudents#growkindness#candyland#kindergarten#kindergartenmom#kindergartenlife#kindnessmatters#kindnessrocksproject#kindnessrocks#randomactsofkindness#momlife#littlefierceones#curiouslittleexplorers#worldoflittles#explorerkids#rememberingthesedays#themagicineveryday#our_everyday_moments#lionessmama#ourwhimsicaldays
