Operation Kind Kids is coming to the Exploratorium tomorrow to share its program of reminding kids of the importance of being kind to others every day. The free program sponsored by KIND bars and Sprout is aimed at younger kids and will have activities to show families how easy it can be to incorporate kindness into their busy daily schedules.
The event will feature stations, including a collaborative collage wall, take home daily calendars to track acts of kindness, a photo booth, flowers for kids to pick and share with someone in their lives, and plenty of KIND Healthy Grain bars on hand for snacking. The event runs from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. outside of the Exploratorium. While the event is free, regular admission to the Exploratorium applies if attendees want to explore the museum.
For those that are interested in learning more about simple ways young kids can be kind, Operation Kind Kids has a website with activities, a kindness counter, and five ideas for being kind, including hugs for parents, cleaning up without being asked, sharing toys, and more. The program has a goal of one million shared acts of kindness – and they are close to reaching it – which can be reported online.
