Kindness Day Hat Activity for Kids
Get kids thinking about how they can spread kindness with a printable hat template they can decorate and wear like a crown this World Kindness Day or Random Acts of Kindness Day! Let your students use their imagination to come up with sentences about how they can show kindness, then use basic materials to make a crown.
Using the template, students write all the ways they can show kindness to others in the small circles at the top of the hat. Alternatively, students can fill the circles with adjectives that they associate with kindness as part of an ELA lesson.
