I’m really excited to share one of our latest toys with you.
Actually, are they toys? Projects? I’m not sure how you’d categorize them.
But…look how cute!!
These are Kindness Elves. They’re special friends who love sprinkling kindness and joy. And my daughter is in love with them.
Her favorite part is the tiny mailbox where she can post notes to them. They respond…and in a few days after they’ve gotten to know each other, the Kindness Elves will start leaving notes with suggested acts of kindness she can do. I think she’s at the perfect age for this — six years old and still believing in magic and fairies and elves. Actually, her older brother won’t admit it, but he’s quite taken with them, too.
You can see they’ve already stuffed the mailbox full of introductions and questions for their elves. Once they go to bed tonight, the elves will answer. Today, we’re just finding out names and hobbies. But with the rest of summer stretching before us, we’ll have plenty of opportunities for the elves to suggest some acts of kindness — for neighbors or siblings (yes! The same siblings they’ve been bickering with all summer so far!)
And to help us along, there’s currently a Camp Kindness e-book we can use for suggestions. The ebook is filled with six weeks of themed activities and acts of kindness that go along with them. There are instructions for making a Camp Kindness scrapbook so you can keep track of your projects and adventures along the way. The camp includes instructions for activities like potion-making and making your own chalk paint, and has activities you can do for others as well.
This comes at a perfect time for us. The novelty of summer is beginning to wear off just a bit, and we now have some activities and adventures to keep us busy! And — best of all — we can share them with others around us.
You can find Kindness Elves here and start your own adventure this summer!
