Kindness Activities for Girls

Kindness Activities for Girls

DECEMBER 17TH, 2019

Now is  the perfect time to practice kindness, and to show girls that strength and kindness are not mutually exclusive. Practicing kindness can be fun, educational and emotionally rewarding. Below are some of our favorite kindness activities. To make sure girls get the most out of them, do them together. That way she’ll benefit from the activity itself and from seeing you model kindness.

Send Kindness Notes

Break out the paper and markers and put together some simple notes acknowledging someone’s hard work or letting them know they make you smile. Make the notes as basic or creative as you like—it’s more about the heart and sentiment than making the perfect piece of art.

Help a Friend or Family Member

With family, it’s easy to get into a routine and forget to stop and recognize folks individually. Do something nice for a friend or family member to show you care and are thinking about them.

Do Something for Someone in Need

Encourage girls to think outside of their immediate circle of friends and family, and do something nice for someone they may not know as well. This might mean donating to a toy or food drive, babysitting for a neighbor family, helping someone who’s struggling with household tasks or chores, etc.

Read a Book About Kindness

We love it when we read a book to a girl and can see the wheels turning in her head as she thinks through it. Try reading a book about kindness and chatting about what it means to her. Check out The Bad Seed by Jory John and Pete Oswald, or A Little SPOT of Kindness! from Hopscotch Girls friend Diane Alber. You can also find a bunch of book ideas on A Mighty Girl’s list of 22 Children's Books That Teach Kids to Be Kind.

Show Kindness to Yourself

This is a particularly great one to do together. Take a day to focus on being mindful of your inner dialog (how you talk to yourself). Challenge yourself to respond with kindness all day, showing yourself the same kindness you would extend to someone you love. For example, if you make a mistake and are tempted to be mad at yourself, respond with kindness instead. This is good for bringing awareness to how you treat yourself in general, and how girls see your behavior.

We hope you enjoy these activities!
