This week we are challenging you to perform an act of kindness that helps children learn to read and to love books! This act can be as simple as giving a book to a friend, leaving a book, or donating books. We encourage you to take part in the International Book Giving Day on February 14.
Here’s How to Send a Love Books Package
- Pick a book
- Create an activity or a few to go with the book
- Put it into an envelope
- Mail or Give your book package away!
Create Heart Flowers
First we created flowers out of hearts with card stock and attached to straws. Then we used a toilet paper roll and covered it with scrapbook paper.
I am totally excited about this challenge!! Now we just have to narrow down which book we want to give away to someone (and then pick an activity or two, of course). My kids are going to have so much fun working on this project. Thanks so much for issuing Week 2's challenge!! I love how it ties into International Book Giving Day too!
Thank you so much! I had the pleasure of writing a post encouraging people to celebrate International Book Giving Day with their kids last year as part of this 100 Acts of Kindness Project. I love the 100 Acts of Kindness Project and giving a book to a child as an act of kindness. My kids and I have had a lot of fun choosing their favorite books and leaving them in waiting rooms for other kids to read. -Amy
I love this idea! Great timing for us — As the recipient of a generous pile of hand-me-down books this week from a friend's random act of kindness, my son is especially interested in this project!
I enjoyed this so much! Thank you!

I LOVE every activity you included in your Kindness package but especially the LOVE card. How darling!! Every year my kids make handmade Valentine's for their Aunts and Uncles and we were going to make them tomorrow. I am excited to use your idea! 🙂

Thanks Rachel for pinning my post too, my girls had a lot of fun making their LOVE cards. Handmade cards just melt my heart 🙂
This would be fun for a gift exchange or just for a kids birthday party. 🙂 The flowers would be fun for a teacher's desk as well.
Thanks for stopping by our Play to Learn Blog Hop. We'll be hosting again on the first Saturday of March, March 2nd. See you then!
