Kindness themed crafts are ideal for children or adults of any age. Kindness craft projects teach children about treating others in a respectful, caring way. Creating kindness themed crafts work well for school, church groups, with friends or at home. Design craft projects that show kindness and benefit others to show you care.
Recycle an old coffee can or glass jar into a kindness jar. Create a theme for the jar using magazine pictures and craft gloss and glue. Use a craft sponge and glue the pictures onto the jar. The craft glue acts also as a sealant over your pictures and clippings. Cut a slit in the top to deposit money. Set a goal for your kindness money jar by donating the money you save to a homeless shelter, humane society or Habitat for Humanity groups. Change adds up quickly and will benefit someone in need.
Wooden Craft Stick Birdhouse
Use wooden craft sticks to design a birdhouse. This is a kindness craft that will benefit animals. Use wood glue to glue the craft sticks together into a square shape by layering them around. Cut shorter pieces out of the craft sticks to create an opening in the front for birds to be able to get in. Make a panel of craft sticks side by side with the glue to create a roof for the house. Hang it in your yard or in a wooded area.
Making friendship bracelets are an act of kindness you can do with friends. Friendship braceletes are made using colored embroidery floss. You and your friends then use weaving and knotting techniques to create different colorful designs. Friendship bracelet kits are available in most craft stores that consist of all the floss colors and patterns. You can also purchase floss separately to create your own friendship bracelet design. Make friendship bracelets and give them to friends or even family members to show you care.
Handmade cards are simple to make and more meaningful to those receiving them. Creating your own cards to give to friends and family for birthdays, holidays or just to remind them you are thinking of them is a kind way of showing your love or appreciation. You can use card stock paper to create the main card. Add embellishments, stickers, ribbon and vellum paper to create intricate designs and pictures for your cards. Handmade cards give you an opportunity to create your own caring message and are more personal than store bought cards.
