Last year, when The Imagination Tree first shared their Kindness Elves idea, I was intrigued. During a season that can be focused on asking for gifts, I love the idea of instead focusing on what we can give others. So this year when I heard that the the Kindness Elves were going to be an actual product that could be purchased, I placed my order. Using the Kindness Elves with preschoolers is going to be a new tradition in our classroom.

Using the Kindness Elves with Preschoolers
First, a bit of background about the Kindness Elves. The idea was created by Anna from The Imagination Tree. She wanted her family to focus on the sense of gratitude for what they have and the kindness towards others. She came up with the idea of using the Kindness Elves to share kindness and gratitude.
And I am beyond thrilled that she put together her own elves to sell – elves with their own house that was designed by a real architect!
Today our Kindness Elves arrived on my front porch. I could not wait to open the box! And when I did, I found the elves peeking out of their house’s window.
I was beyond impressed with the quality of these adorable dolls! And their house has a working mailbox!
I also purchased the accessory kit. It is packed full of amazing extra goodies to use with the Kindness Elves, such as 50 acts of kindness cards.
My plan is to place one of these cards somewhere in our classroom each morning with the elves. What a great lesson on doing something for others!
The accessory pack also comes with mini postcards for the Kindness Elves to write to the children. These will be on our preschoolers’ sitting stools when they arrive each morning.
There is also a kindness resource pack for teachers. You will see all of this when you click on the link later in this post.
Here’s a video that will give you a better idea of how cute they are:
