Celebrate World Kindness Day By Creating Kindness Cloud Craft | #SuperMightyMovement

Kindness Cloud

World Kindness Day is celebrated every year on November 13th. On this day, participants try to make the world a better place by celebrating and sharing good deeds. World Kindness Day was first launched in 1998 by The World Kindness Movement formed by humanitarian groups and organizations around the world. Kindness Day is not much about kindness pledge but rather small actions to express some support and care to people around us. Donating clothes, food, volunteering, helping with chores, sending cards or just saying how awesome your family and friends are make a huge difference.

If you love crafting then it is a wonderful opportunity to create something special for your loved ones on Kindness Day to show how much you appreciate them. Recently TVOKids launched new series The Super Mighty Makers. In every episode the team of kids with special powers helps to solve problems with kindness, through crafting, check more about them here.

Today we encourage you to celebrate upcoming World Kindness Day and join #SuperMightyMovement with us. For some inspiration we share how to make Kindness Cloud. It is easy and would be such a highlight of the day for your friend, family member, neighbor or teacher, same as at the end of each The Super Mighty Makers episode when Craft Kid presents his creation! You can share your own craft, we will be happy to see it!

Make Your Own Kindness Cloud

What You’ll Need
  • 1 Cloud (pre-cut)
  • 6 Strips of construction paper (pre-cut)
  • Marker
  • Frame
  • Glitter
  • Glue Stick
Pick a person you want to spread kindness to and think about the things you love about them. Write their name in the cloud followed by "__________ is amazing because he/she is…"

Write a word on each piece of coloured construction paper that describes your friend (i.e. giving, funny, kind, etc.). Be sure to leave room at the top of each piece for glue.

Flip the cloud over so the written side is facing down. Place glue on the top of the written side of each colored strip.

Place the colored strips on the cloud with the written side facing down and place the colors in order from left to right. Let the glue dry for five minutes and then flip your card over to reveal your beautiful craft! You can decorate your card with glitter and stickers if you like!

Once the cloud and rainbow strips are glued together secure the craft to the inside of the frame.

Once your craft is finished, give it to your friend and remember to spread kindness wherever you go! Make sure to upload a picture to social media using the #SuperMightyMovement tag and show us how your spreading kindness in your community!
