September is Anti-Bullying Month but really I think every month should be. The best thing I know to get rid of bullies is kindness so I whipped up some kindness favors today to share with you using my Cricut Explore Air 2 and a few other fun things. As a mother of four and a once-upon-a-time teacher, I believe it is important to surround kids (of all ages) with positivity and words of kindness. One word can be the difference in shifting self-doubt to confidence, feelings of failure to those of success and a bad mood into a good one. These kindness favors are a great way to spread lots of goodness in your world.
To make the kindness favors, you will need the following supplies and materials.
- Cricut Machine (Explore Air 2) and Bright Colors of Vinyl
- Cricut Transfer Tape
- Tool to Weed Letters
- Confetti and Be Kind SVG Files (FREE DOWNLOAD HERE)
- Be Kind Word Search Puzzle Printable (FREE DOWNLOAD HERE)
- Throw Kindness Tag Printable (FREE DOWNLOAD HERE)
- Paper Straws
Cut confetti shapes out of vinyl (12 per jar works great!).
Cut Be Kind words out for each jar and weed them. Apply vinyl to jar using transfer tape. Add ribbon around neck of jar.
Fill jar with word search puzzle, markers and sweet treats like Cosmic Brownies. Cut kindness tags out and tape them to straws. Put in jars.
Give out to everyone you know! You can download the printable word search puzzle and Throw Kindness Around Like Confetti Tags and use them for this kindness favor jar and lots of other things too!
The word search is filled with great words to complete “I AM…..” statements!
YAY! Yay for kindness!!!
If you work or volunteer in a school, you might like this post too. It is filled with awesome ways to use your Cricut machine to spread kindness.
