The Kindness Elves often suggest to the children that they should stop and think about all the things in their lives that they should be grateful for. Our happiness really thrives on our thankfulness and it also helps us to see the need of others around us with open eyes. If we are thankful for our constant supply of food and water then we can appreciate how awful it must be to be hungry and thirsty.
Developing empathy is one of the central missions of the Kindness Elves, helping to grow kind and caring children. This activity is so simple to do and makes a lovely family activity to be done at Thanksgiving or any time.
