Activity:

  

Fill a jar with candy (good use for Halloween, Valentine's, or Easter candy). Label the jar with the words "Kindness Jar." Sit down with your child(ren) and explain that your family is going to help each other show kindness by using the "Kindness Jar." Every time anyone is "caught" being kind, he or she gets to take out a sweet treat from the jar. Encourage the kids to look for other family members being kind.
