- Fruit snacks or gummies

Kindness Countdown Chain
Beginning an Easter countdown chain is an easy way to help kids endure the wait. We like to begin our countdown chain at the start of Lent, but you could wait until after St. Patrick’s Day to start your Easter kindness countdown.
First, create a simple paper chain with construction paper links. Kids can help to get in on the fun and practice their scissor skills too. Then, have each child write a different way to show kindness on the strips of paper.
Here are some ideas to get you started:
- Smile at someone
- Wave hello
- Hold the door open
- Give a hug
- Drop off toys or blankets to your local animal shelter
There are so many fun ways we can show kindness to others every day! Encourage your children to look for ways to spread kindness this Easter season by trying a new kindness activity each day as they remove a link.
If you celebrate Lent, it’s a great way to encourage alms giving with your children. Before long, all the links will be gone and Easter will arrive!
Plus, your family will have learned a lot about how to spread kindness to others all season long.
This is definitely one of my favorite Easter kindness activities for the whole family! Plus, it creates a beautiful Easter decoration for your home that’s interactive and fun for kids too.
To create your own Easter kindness tree, you’ll need a few simple supplies:
- 1 Vase
- 5-6 Tree Branches (cut to size)
- White Spray Paint (optional)
- Twine or ribbon
- Easter Candy
- Printable Eggs (included in this link)
