Kindness Clips – Random Acts of Kindness Idea
I have to give credit to my boys’ middle school for coming up with this wonderful heartwarming Random Acts of Kindness idea that I thought was just TOO good not to share! Earlier in the school year, we learned that the school was leading an activity that was designed to uplift, encourage, and inspire students to be kind and compassionate. They gave each student a clothespin decorated with an inspirational word or phrase, and the goal was for each student to anonymously deliver that message to another student. The children carefully and secretively clipped the messages on to each other’s backpacks, lunch bags, and lockers when they weren’t looking, and the results were incredible! My boys came home beaming from ear to ear when they discovered that their backpacks were covered in messages like “You Matter,” “You Are a Good Friend,” and “Believe in Yourself.”
We chose phrases that were short, sweet, uplifting, and perfect for all ages and genders.
We opted for an entire rainbow of inspirational messages, but if you’re planning on doing this activity at your school, it would also be fun to paint the clips in your school colors!
This Random Acts of Kindness idea makes my heart SO happy! Kindness clips are a great way to spread encouragement, motivation, inspiration, and of course, kindness to friends and loved ones!
