Random Acts of Kindness Week (11-17 February 2018), is a whole week dedicated to being kind. And, while being kind is a simple thing, teaching children about kindness and the importance of being kind is as crucial as teaching them their maths facts!
“Kindness is a language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.” (Mark Twain)
We present to you, the cutest, most adorable and delightful kindness activities that will work in your classroom during Random Acts of Kindness Week, or any other week of the school year.
Random Acts of Kindness Activities for the Classroom
Why not take this opportunity to set up a compliments box in your classroom? The idea is that students can write compliments to their classmates or teachers. At the end of the week, the compliments are handed out.
How it will be amazing to see the joy on your kids’ faces when they receive a compliment!

Random Acts of Kindness Chatterbox
There is no doubt about it, chatterboxes are always a popular one around the school grounds. You can use our Random Acts of Kindness Chatterbox template with your students.
Students brainstorm different random acts of kindness and write their ideas in the blank sections of the chatterbox template.
Links of Kindness
This has to be my most favourite of these random acts of kindness activity ideas! Create a class ‘Links of Kindness’ chain that students can add to throughout the year! How long can the chain get? What a fantastic whole school initiative as well! Classes add to the school’s Links of Kindness chain!
It’s simple, students write any random acts of kindness that happened to them during the week. They then pop it in the completed links and at the end of the day, the links are added to the Links of Kindness chain!
