Sharing kindness: quick Coronavirus activities 

 

We hope you managed to have a rest this Easter. During the next few months we’ll be regularly sharing activities linked to our kindness calendar which you can pass onto parents and students. The kindness calendar helps 5 to 18-year-olds practice kindness every day during the coronavirus emergency. Download the calendar now.

 

Kindness will keep us together

Help to spread our message of kindness through our free downloadable limited edition prints, designed by inspiring artists. Download in colour or black and white, print off, colour in (physically or using an online colouring site) and display to share the message far and wide. You can take your learning further with these additional activities:

  • Create your own ‘kindness will keep us together’ artwork.
  • Think about what it means. How can kindness unite us?
  • Share the artwork. You could put it up in your window or communal areas to encourage others to stay positive. Use #PowerOfKindness to share on social media or email your artwork to reducation@redcross.org.uk.

 

Here are four more activities to help you populate the kindness calendar next week.

  1. Spend time together – could you spend more time together as a family? Perhaps play a game or cook a family meal?
  2. Stay in touch. Encourage your learners to get in touch with other members of their class or wider family. Ask them what they are finding most difficult about lockdown? What are they enjoying? What are they looking forward to when this is over? Could your class help tackle what they are finding difficult?
  3. Keep active – helps to lift the mood and bring energy. Could your class help their family to learn a new skill, like dancing?
  4. Time to reflect – look back at the week and the kind acts. What are you proud of? Could you introduce a rewards initiative for your class’ kind acts? Use your kindness calendar to record acts of kindness.
