MLK Day may not be celebrated in every country of the world, and here, there or wherever you live, your family can participate in the message. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: ‘What are you doing for others?'”
Children may be young in years but they still have an amazing depth of compassion for others. Recently, I found a downloadable poster of 100 Acts of Kindness for Kids on the blog Coffee Cups and Crayons. That inspired this poster of 10 Ways for kids to serve.
These are simple actions that kids can do. Children will have their own ideas and ways to show compassion and empathy. Dr. King reminded us “We must learn to live together…” and we need to teach that to children. They will learn from our example and our words. What else can you suggest for kids and families?
