KINDNESS CARDS: 52 Ways to Make Every Day a Little Better is an insightful and timely deck from Nuanprang Snitbhanm PsyD,
a clinical psychologist specializing in working with children, adolescents, and their families. Kindness takes time to blossom, just like a tree takes time to grow from a small seed. This colorful deck shares different ways kids can practice being kind to themselves, their families, their communities, and the earth every single day. Each card offers a simple reflection or activity that helps kids develop their strengths in four key dimensions of kindness: compassion, empathy, courage, and responsibility. Kindness can be challenging, but these cards make it fun; and the more we practice, the better we feel!
Today more than ever, kids (and grown-ups alike) could use a daily dose of kindness. From making a “happy list,” to becoming a “secret helper,” and from keeping a kindness journal or starting a kindness club, KINDNESS CARDS is a great way for families to talk and listen and help kids see the light of the world even on the darkest days.
“These are so great for the times we are living now!”
“These cards are educational in the area of social-emotional development. The deck of cards, which are large and in a very sturdy box, include 52 cards with ideas in the areas of compassion, empathy, courage and responsibility. Examples include: “Enjoy the present moment…” (compassion); “Pay close attention to the people around you….” (empathy); “Let someone go ahead of you in line…” (courage) and; “Every time you pick up a piece of trash, the earth feels and looks a little better…” (responsibility). We like that the set includes a set of directions with ideas for how to use the cards, such as picking one a week to complete or keeping a kindness journal.”
“I think this is a wonderful product. I think it would be good for elementary and even middle school age children, the cards are recommended for Kindergarten to 4th grade, but I think older kids will benefit from these too. And parents can do all of this with their kids as well. The cards have simple activities to practice kindness towards yourself, others and your environment each day — good for all ages.”
“This is an awesome gift for the family to do together (holidays are coming) or for children to do on their own. I also think this would be great for a teacher to do with students- lots of lessons can be learned using these cards.”
“Parents will enjoy doing these activities with their children.”
“I like how well-made these cards are. Vibrant design on heavy card stock and easily stored in its sturdy container.”
