These kindness bulletin board ideas will give you all the inspiration to spread kindness in your classroom!

Act of Kindness Ideas for Kids

  • Hold the door open for the student or teacher behind you!
  • Kindness Bookmark – Have these or something similar available in the library or classroom reading space. Children can use these as their own reminder to be kind. They could also leave them behind in the book once they are done as their own act of kindness. Another fun bookmark idea would be to have blank bookmarks available for children to write and color on. They could write a nice or encouraging message and leave them behind for future readers of that book.
  • Kindness Tear Off Posters – Put these up in your own classroom to encourage different acts of kindness or make it a class activity! Students could color their own and put them up in the hallway all over school.
  • Invite a new student or student who is by themself to sit or play with you!
