Kindness Favors

Share this!

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 Kindness Favor Confetti Vinyl

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!!!

  1. Between Girl Scouts, Animal Rescue groups, Special Needs group, school and everything else in between – the possibilities are endless! The Group home needs new bowling shirts for the Special Olympics tournament next month and the Girl Scouts need camping shirts – that’s where I would start!

  2. To be honest I’d have a lot to learn but love the idea of party favor labels and labels for organizing in my classroom and playroom.

  3. I am a teacher mom. I would label all kinds of things for organization in my classroom and my house. I am not creative, and this would help s lot.

  4. I’m a substitute teacher and volunteer at my kiddos’ school. With a Cricut we could make positive quotes to place on walls around the school, create new games for our spring festival and more!

  5. I do a lot of scrapbooking and have an older circuit but would so love to win a Cricut Air 2 as this would sure open up many more avenues for me.

  6. I would use this in 3rd grade, Girl Scouts, & Cub Scouts! I think personalized gifts are perfect to thank volunteers! Thank you for the opportunity.

  7. I would start by making matching t-shirts for my daughter and I for an upcoming trip. Then I would make some letters for our camper.

  8. I would love aCricut! I’d make and label everything in my classroom! I am an organization junkier! Label all the things!, lol

  9. It I was lucky enough to win I would probably try to make pop-up cards. Thanks for the chance to win this AWESOME prize!

  10. I would make cool stuff for my younger kids classrooms, labels for my homemade soaps, ointments, and herbs, and labels and cute cutouts for my daughter who just had a baby a few days ago!

  11. Hi Laura,
    I have been wanting to get a Circuit for a while. I would use it for so many things, like making cute labels for the bins in my craft area as well as the ones in my therapy room (I am a Speech Pathologist for a public school). I have therapy materials organized by season/holidays/. Right now they are labeled with an index card sized paper label that i printed form my computer. Nice, but not as cute (or durable) as vinyl cut letters. Additionally I would try my hand at card making, and iron-on designs. Thank you so much for this opportunity.

  12. I would make labels for all the things in my sewing room & in the kitchen. I would also make cute designs to put on sweatshirts for Christmas gifts and for my great-grandsons little onsies.

  13. I would make invitations, crafts for diaper cakes, I would make every holiday crafts for my job for babies in the NICU and Children at The Childrens Hospital of Colorado! I would make tons of crafting with my beautiful children ?

  14. I would use it to make number chart, weather chart, calendar pieces, shapes, colors, days of the week, months of the year, birthday calendar, art wall, word wall and letter of the week. We do a new theme for our Pre-K classroom every year. We also, make manipulative’s with it. School email: klea@wattsschool.com

  15. Oh my, I couldn’t name just one thing I would use the cricut for. I am a Family and Consumer Science teacher and there are so many things and projects I could use this for!! I would LOVE to win this!!

  16. I work in our school districts Welcome Center (a family and resource center). I would love to use it to decorate our space. It is still a fairly new space and currently looks very sterile. It would be great to add some of the ideas from this blog.

  17. Hockey season just started and I see too many cute shirts out there for us hockey mommas. I would make some shirts for myself and my fellow hockey moms.

  18. I haven’t used a cricut before so, I don’t know the extent of its capabilities, but I know I would make some personalized gifts.

  19. I need my sanctuary outlet back! Crafting was a source of great comfort and peace! It forced me outside my comfort zone and changed my view on creativity. I learned a deeper appreciation and respect for those things created from my heart. Despite imperfect creations, there was so much appreciation and love for the thought.

    I look forward to that quiet respite once more. Whether, card making, scrapbooking, home design, party favors, props, whatever. I get an opportunity to be “ME” in my own world.

  20. I would make amazing things for my classroom and then use it for scrapbooking and card making in my “free” time.

  21. I’d make all the things and label all the things I need for my class and scout groups! I’d get so much use out of a Cricut!!

  22. My school teacher daughter was here Sunday handcutting all sorts of things for her bulletin boards. This would be a great help to her~

  23. I would make just about anything! I’ve wanted a Cricut so badly, for years now lol but I have many ideas for Tshirts, labels, cool room decorations for my kids and so much more ❤

  24. Where to start, there is so much one could do with a Cricut. T-shirts, craft projects, personalize items, the list really goes on and on.

  25. Hum, my comment would be what wouldn’t I make. I love making shirts and labeling things so I would just be a making machine. LOL!!

  26. I would decorate my classroom and various things around our school. I would also like ro make vinyl cutouts for the student store for kids to get and some for Student Council to sell to earn money for field trips!

  27. Love your Kindness Matters jar idea and printables. Anti- Bullying needs to be a priority of all teachers and school staff. Unfortunately, most seem to ignore it. Parents need to teach and model this at home first. Your example and giveaway is a great way to promote change. Thank you.

  28. We always try to be kind. It’s the Mantra around here! I’m a carmaker, altered art and home decor sorta gal, so I would use it for that and….. my daughter is engaged to be married in 2021! We are want to DIY a lot of the decorations, favors, signs and all the things like that.

  29. What an awesome giveaway. I never owned one of these machines before. I would use it for my mixed media projects. Christmas cards or decorations. ?

  30. Love this giveaway! I would be able to make beautiful embellishments for my girls’ scrapbook pages. I have done alot of research on this machine and love all it allows you to do! Would be an incredible blessing!

  31. I would make holiday cards! Nothing like getting a personalized, hand made card during the Christmas season!

  32. I would So make some ‘Welcome Back to School’ personalized gifts for my students: Folders/Binders/Notebooks/water bottles.

  33. If I won I would make items for my Girl Scout troop and Christmas presents for my family! Thank you for the opportunity!

  34. Your printables are so cute! I would love to organize and label everything and also make some party decorations! I don’t have a Cricut and would LOVE one!

  35. I would make a label for a “Kiss Your Brain” jar to hold my Hershey kisses. I would make labels for my estimation jar and other items in my classroom as well.

  36. I would make my friend a decal for her car, a decal for my daughter’s car and some T-shirts I have been wanting to make… just for starters.

  37. I would make custom tote bags with my Muffins (aka grandkids) they love weeding and I love passing on the crafting tradition to the next generation.

  38. I would make the kindness bags, to start! I’m using “throw kindness like confetti” as a theme in my 2nd grade classroom this year!

  39. I currently do not own a Cricut, so this would be an awesome addition to make tons of items & leaves for my homeschool classroom. We’re also redecorating our home, so this would definitely come in handy labeling & organizing things. Thanks for such a wonderful giveaway!

  40. I would love to use this to be more organized in my classroom and home! It would be so fun to use for a new hobby!

  41. Wow! I could use a one of these at home and for the classroom! This is such an awesome idea for a Wonder unit!
