Teaching children to be generous and caring can help ensure a peaceful and supportive environment where all children grow and develop to their maximum potential. This is not only a great environment for children, but also for the adults that work in it… win-win for all!
Guiding children in expressing compassion and empathy towards others through day to day activities will help them develop life-long practices of caring for others. Through hands-on activities, children:
· Create a ‘coupon book’ of nice things to do for others
· Make a ‘I Care’ puppet to use in role playing how to care for others
· Bake cookies to share with others
Help the children in your care learn that when we care for each other, we all are cared for!
