The simple act of being kind or compassionate toward another person can make their day special. Helping someone out is not only special to the receiver, but it makes us feel good to give an act of kindness, no matter how small.
Make the heart to remind you to do acts of kindness, or give your heart to someone to brighten up their day. Out of a cereal box, cut out a heart. Cut small squares of tissue paper. One at a time, place a square of tissue paper over your index finger and dot on a drop of glue. Press your finger onto the cardboard heart and release. Continue until all of the heart is covered.
