Summer Learning Theme #5 – Kindness

Kindness - SLP All Together Now

Kindness - SLP All Together NowOur final theme of this year’s Summer Learning Program at Chesterfield County Public Library is Kindness. Do you remember someone’s kindness towards you and how that made you feel? Maybe someone held the door for you, or your friend let you have the last piece of candy. Maybe that act of kindness turned your bad day into a good day. 

In the next two weeks, we’ll be focusing on kindness. You can complete one of the following activities focused on spreading kindness to earn a badge and enter to win a $20 gift card. 

  • Craft at the library! Visit the kindness craft station at any CCPL location.
  • Read or listen to any book with a kindness theme.  Not sure what to read?  Check out our curated book list for suggestions.
  • Write a friend or family member a thank you note.
  • Donate a gently used toy to CCPL’s toy drive for upcoming holiday Freeshop events.
  • Make kindness rocks and leave them in your neighborhood to brighten someone’s day.
  • Post an encouraging sign in your window at home to cheer up people passing by
  • Make a mindful breathing stick and practice deep breathing.
  • Post-its of Positivity. Write positive messages on sticky notes.  Post them to inspire yourself and others.
  • Help your family by doing a chore without being asked.
  • Make an affirmation jar.  Choose one positive affirmation to read every day. 

Once you complete any of these activities, mark it on the Beanstack app or website to complete the Kindness badge.

Remember to keep tracking your reading every day on your own. Once you reach the 10-day milestones, mark them complete in Beanstack! You can visit the treasure chest at your local library for a prize when you’ve reached 20, 50, 60, and 70 days of reading!
