Kindness Rocks - At Home Activity

What can you do when you're stuck at home? Here are some activities that focus on caring for others and doing random acts of kindness.

1. Talk with your family about how we can be kind to each other while we spend time inside. What would it look like? What can we do?

2. Sometimes the best kind of kindness is random and unexpected! Do one random act of kindness for someone in your home. Here are some ideas for what you can do:

a. Draw a picture or make for a family member.

b. Do the dishes.

c. Clean up after a pet.

d. Call or facetime a family member who is far away.

3. Let share kindness far! Have you heard about the kids around the world who are sharing kindness with their neighbourhoods? Learn more about what others are doing in Canada, and around the world here:

4. Your final task: to create your own rainbow of kindness and place it in your window or door for your neighbors to see.

Lori St. Martin has been an Alberta Girl Guide Leader and member for 19 fun filled years, but every time she visited the Guide Store, she found that there were rarely any new crests. That's when she decided to combine her graphic/web design career with her passion for Guiding. The two naturally merged into creating fun activity embroidered patches and this web site, E-Patches & Crests.

Thank-you for the speedy service! The crests came on Tuesday, our Spark meeting night just in time to hand out the caroling crests to the girls that attended the event. I love to hand them out so the other girls can see what they missed and perhaps come to the next event. Merry Christmas!

I usually make up a sketch of what I kinda think I want. Then I send it to Lori at e-patches, and she makes it look really good :) Lori has this amazing ability to take my ridiculously vague sketch and make it look exactly what I vision. [This] really sums up one reason of why I always use e-patches :)

Wow! Wow! Wow! I love the custom shirts you did for our unit Lori. The graphics, typeset, and colour printing look fantastic. I can’t wait to surprise the unit with them on Monday at our first meeting. They are going to love the special gift crests you sent along as well. Thanks again for the speedy delivery of another quality product.
