Work for all pupils for other curriculum areas 

Devise a ‘Kindness Project’ 

How to do it 

This activity is a simple task that can take place over a week or a few weeks and is based on creating a ‘Kindness Project’ or ‘Happiness Diary’.  This is where your family or household records all acts of kindness that they do throughout the day. This could take the form of one activity or all the kind things that you do. The activity can be recorded in many ways and there are some examples below of how you can complete it. 

Completing the activity: 

Start this activity by thinking about all the different acts of kindness that we can do. These could include: 

  • Helping lay the table 
  • Helping clean the dishes 
  • Tidying bedrooms 
  • Folding laundry 
  • Taking care of a pet  
  • Looking after and playing with a younger brother, sister, or friend 
  • Caring for an elderly relative or writing to them  
  • Helping someone who is ‘stuck’ 

Recording the activity: 

You could record the diary in different ways. This could be: 

  • By creating a chart where each act of kindness is recorded 
  • Using pictures to show the different acts of kindness 
  • Writing a small paragraph about the different acts 
  • Writing the acts down one side of a chart and the names of the people across the top. Record a ‘√’ each time someone completes  something kind  

What you will learn:

Creating your ‘Kindness diary’ will help you to: 

  • Recognise how you can help people 
  • Improve your drawing and writing skills 

 

Create and make a meal for a special person  

How to do it: 

This is an activity based on creating and cooking a meal for your favourite person. 

This can be: 

  • One part of a main meal such as a main course or the whole meal 
  • A pudding, cake, or biscuits  
  • A snack that they might enjoy 

Think about: 

  • Which part of the meal you will cook? 
  • Who can help you to buy the ingredients and cook it (this may be someone other than the ‘special’ person!) • What the person likes to eat. They may like mainly sweet things or prefer savoury 
  • Using different recipe books and online recipes to get some good ideas  

Getting started: 

  • Once you have decided what you are going to cook you need to list all the ingredients needed. Check your store cupboard to see what is  available before you go to the shops 
  • Go shopping to get the ingredients or ask someone else to shop for you  

Completing the activity: 

  • Now set about cooking. You may need someone to help you with this. Make sure that you take care when using sharp cooking utensils or  when cooking with heat 
  • Remember to wash your hands when preparing food and wipe the work surfaces down afterwards 
  • It would make it a special occasion if you laid the table in a special way with some flowers to make the meal extra special! 

What you will learn  

Creating and making your recipe will help you to: 

  • Learn how to prepare meals  
  • Improve your cooking skills  

Useful websites: there are many online recipes to help you if you type these into Google
