100 Random Acts of Kindness for Kids: How to Make a Kindness Chart

Are the kids constantly battling? Want to promote acts of kindness instead in this new year? Here's what my family loves to do to promote kindness!

On a poster board, make 10 rows of 10 boxes where you can write each good deed your children do. If they’re old enough, they can write in their own. 

Examples of random acts of kindness are:

  • Talking nicely.
  • Brushing teeth without being asked.
  • Holding the door for a sibling.
  • Taking a plate to the sink.
  • Walking the dog.
  • Asking about someone's day.
  • Giving an unexpected hug.
  • Drawing a picture for a friend.
  • Helping without having to be asked.
  • Playing with their brother or sister. 

Every good deed goes toward the 100. Once the 100th is reached, celebrate in a way that suits your family, like an ice cream night, a movie, extra allowance, etc. They may rush to fill in the chart and forget about picking on each other (and you).

I love this. At first when I read 100 acts of kindness I thought no way! But I love the 10 by 10 box which makes it so doable!

Chrissy, hope you give it a try! It's such an easy, visible way to focus on the good vibes in your household. My kids started getting creative when they got close to 100... Like writing down younger siblings' good deeds in the boxes. Win win for all of them.
