How to Celebrate Kids Birthday with Acts of Kindness

In the days leading up to our little guy’s 8th birthday, we made a list of easy, kid-friendly ways he could perform eight acts of birthday kindness. This dinnertime brainstorming session became a family event with even the 5 year old suggesting some (albeit wacky) ways to spread kindness.

We made a list of his birthday acts of kindness, hung it on the fridge and he enthusiastically checked it off as he went about his way sprinkling kindness around.

The highlight was when he kept exclaiming, “I can’t believe I did three kind things today!” 🙂
