The non-profit has created two sets of challenge sheets, one for preschoolers and one for children ages 5-12, to complete. The sheets include 16 suggested, age-appropriate acts for children to undertake during August.
Once they’ve finished the challenge, they can take the completed sheet to McGinty’s any time from Aug. 27-31 for a free kids meal.
The suggestions for 5-12 year-olds include leaving water and a snack for the mail delivery person, holding a door open for someone, placing a “kind note” in a book for someone to find later, painting Kindness Rocks, learning about local non-profits, and others.
Silver Spring Cares also created a Pinterest page to accompany the challenge, offering how-tos and other ideas for acts of kindness.
The organization also would like to collect pictures and stories from children taking the challenge. They can be submitted via email to Heather@SilverSpringCares.org or by U.S. Mail to:
