The birds are chirping their sweet songs, flowers are blooming, blossoms cover the bare branches and coats have been flung off in pursuit of plenty of outdoor play in the longer evenings!
Our Kindness Elves have made a reappearance to celebrate the change of season and have even decorated their little cloud ouse with flowers because they’re feeling so happy! As you know, we use our Kindness Elves and their accompanying story book, as a way to model and encourage empathy and kindness all year around, and parents, teachers and kids all around the world are loving the message!

Acts of Kindness are not just for Christmas, despite the traditional emphasis on advent as a time for thinking about others. There are many lovely acts of kindness that we can show in the Spring and Summer which just aren’t possible in the Winter, and many of those take place outside!
Here are our brand new Acts of Kindness Suggestion Cards for Spring.[click link to download for free!] I hope you’ll agree that they’re absolutely gorgeous! We can’t wait for you to download these for free, print them out at home, cut them and store them ready to use with your own little Kindness Elves on whatever occasions you see fit!
I think we will stick each one we have completed onto a bare tree branch (cut from brown craft paper) and grow our own Tree of Kindness in the process!
There is no time limit or set days to use these. Most will work well at any time and should be simple enough to set up with little preparation or materials. We’ve done the hard work for you by having the ideas and making the cards ready for you to use!
