The Kindness Jar

Let’s face it, sometimes parenting small people isn’t the most serene experience – ruined a toddler’s life with the wrong color jam in their sandwich, anyone? We can’t promise there will be no tantrums down the bread aisle but here’s a fun way to encourage kindness in kids. All you need is a nice big jar (we’ll let you choose the size based on how generous you’re feeling) and some ping pong balls. It works like this: every time your little ones are nice to each other, share stuff or do anything that you’d like to encourage, give them a ping pong ball to put in the jar. Once the jar is full, everyone gets a treat. Simple as that.
