Random Acts of Kindness Day Celebrated at Kidderminster Nursery

In a week-long celebration, children at Little Trinity Nursery in Kidderminster took part in craft activities, donated food and made individual hearts which they then hung on their kindness-tree to celebrate this year’s Random Acts of Kindness Day.

Throughout the week the children focused on undertaking acts of kindness with either friends in nursery or at home with their families. Making cards and collage pictures and talking about the many ways they could be kind and helpful, they also talked about how acts of kindness made them feel.

Nursery Manager, Gaynor Carter, explained: “The children loved taking part in their kindness activities and it gave us the opportunity to discuss the importance of being kind to each other, and the many ways we can show kindness.”

Celebrated annually on the 17th February, the National Random Acts of Kindness Day has grown in popularity every year and is celebrated by individuals, groups, schools, and organizations nationwide to encourage more people to take part in acts of kindness and is now a popular day for children and adults everywhere.

Added Gaynor: “To help support people within the community we asked our families and staff to donate food items which we then donated to our local food bank.

“Celebrating Random Acts of Kindness Day with the children gave us the opportunity to have a range of discussions about this how we can be kind and how we can help people within our community less fortunate than ourselves.

“All 85 children received an 'It's cool to be kind badge' to thank them for the kind things they had done throughout the week, which they absolutely loved!”
