Let’s hear it for summer! But oh, what to do with the kids. How about creating a fun Camp Kindness with the Kindness Elves?
Even if you only have a few weeks left until school resumes, you can add some of these camp ideas in your home or summer preschool. Camp Kindness is a 6-week flexible activity camp that explores ways to be kind to others.
AND they are easy and fun!
Creating a Fun Camp Kindness with the Kindness Elves
You’ve heard me mention these adorable, sweet and loving elves before. They replaced the Elf on the Shelf at Christmastime.
Later we created a kindness shelf while I used ideas from the Kind Classroom eBook.
And now we can extend the kindness curriculum into our summer with Camp Kindness!

Camp Kindness is a fun activity-packed summer camp project with a kindness twist. Not only is it full of great activities and crafts to keep kids busy, but it also adds an act of kindness suggestion each day.
This camp can be tailored to fit YOUR schedule. You can try all 6 weeks worth of activities or just a few. It would be a fun addition to your family’s summer days because it’s suited for kids aged 3-8. Everyone can get involved!

Building compassionate friendships.
Visiting those in need and leaving flowers.
Making, wrapping and giving homemade gifts.
Taking care of our environment.
Make sure you have a copy of the Story of the Kindness Elves! We read sections of this book often and it’s a great reminder of how to be kind to others.
