It’s almost time to begin the 5th annual 100 Acts of Kindness Challenge! Yay!
100 Acts of Kindness Challenge

Planning to Include a Toddler in the 100 Acts of Kindness Challenge
My family has participated in the 100 Acts of Kindness Project since it started in 2011. My kids, kids-in-law, and I have all worked to place an extra emphasis on performing random acts of kindness throughout the project. This year, I plan to include my 14-month-old granddaughter, Zoey, in 100 Acts of Kindness activities.
With Zoey, I plan to keep things simple. If she does a helpful task, I’ll say something like, “Thank you for washing the table. That was kind of you.” When someone does something special for her, I’ll say something like, “That was a nice thing to do. We say thank you when someone does something kind for us.” (Note: I’m not expecting Zoey to say thank you. I’m just introducing her to the concepts of kindness and saying thank you.) We’ll also talk about any acts of kindness we’re doing.
