My 3-year-old granddaughter, Zoey, loves the Kindness Elves … and I love to find new ways to use them to encourage kindness throughout the year. I was excited to see that Anna from the Imagination Tree (the founder of the Kindness Elves) has a new post with 25 spring acts of kindness ideas! One of the ideas (and free printables) is for a sweet Easter egg kindness project.

Materials Used for Easter Egg Kindness Project with the Kindness Elves
- Kindness Elves (They come in a number of different options for skin, hair, and clothing color!)
- The Story of the Kindness Elves (I often now use this book to introduce a kindness challenge.)
- “Let’s fill plastic eggs with surprise messages for people you love!” kindness suggestion card from free acts of kindness suggestion cards for spring at the Imagination Tree
- Easter basket (or any type of basket to hold the plastic eggs)
- Plastic Easter eggs (mine have small, medium, and large nesting eggs in each color, but any kind will work)
- Small note paper
- Colored pencils or other writing tools
Encouraging Kindness with the Easter Egg Kindness Project
The spring kindness suggestion “Let’s fill plastic eggs with surprise messages for people you love!” is a fun and easy idea to use. It was an especially easy project to prepare, since I already had plastic Easter eggs, an Easter basket, small note paper, and colored pencils.
Zoey had fun writing special messages for loved ones.
She folded each message and put it a set of nesting eggs. We both enjoyed the Easter egg kindness project … another way to encourage kindness throughout the year!
