Go beyond Valentine’s Day and transform all of February into a month of generosity. Our Valentine Kindness Challenge gives you 28 ways to practice spreading love with your children. Post the challenge on your refrigerator or other prominent place in your home, and take time each day to complete one act of kindness.

Talk to your child:

How does it feel to commit an act of kindness, even if you’ll never meet the person who receives it and they can’t ever thank you?

Can you think of other fun ways to spread joy?
