It’s almost back to school time here where we live and I know in many areas the kids are already in school. With the kids heading back after summer vacation and a break from many of their classmates, I think it’s a great time to remind them about being kind and doing their part to keep bullying to a minimum. No matter the age of our children it’s important to teach them to extend kindness and how much of a difference a little kindness can make in someone else’s day. This Back to School Be Kind Bucket List has simple ideas to challenge kids to be kind!
Back to School Be Kind Bucket List
You can print this free printable bucket list and hang it up at home, to put it in the inside of your child’s school folder or binder, to hang in their locker, or even offer to print one off for your child’s teacher to keep in the classroom or in the halls at school. Maybe print one to put in all these places as a constant reminder to be kind!
Challenge your child to do one thing off the Back to School Be Kind Bucket List each day and make it part of your daily routine to have a conversation about it after school. We love to do “Question of the Day” during dinner and asking your child what they did off the bucket list is a great way to get dinner conversation going! You can even adapt the ideas from the Be Kind Bucket List for yourself. Use it for ideas on how to spread kindness at work, where you volunteer, or to your family. Be an example for your kids to see how kindness can make a difference!
