Spread Dot-ish Kindness







Kind and warm energy is important to spread. And everyone can have ideas about ways to spread kindness. But how can you describe kindness?

Make a list of words and draw them on dots. Inspiration for words can you get by discussing books such as Have You Filled a Bucket Today?: A Guide to Daily Happiness for Kids by Carol McCloud, Ordinary Mary’s Extraordinary Deed by Emily Pearson, Three Questions by Jon J Muth, and the classic and wonderful book, The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein.

Inspired by the book Start with a Dot (Guided Journal): A Journal for Making Your Mark by Peter H. Reynolds, we made a page filled with dots and words of kindness. Love the way the guided journal starts the creative journey by giving you permission to draw just one dot and sign your name in a gold frame! Big dots, little dots, scattered dots, well, all sorts of dots. And of course, the dots are only the beginning. Towards the end of the journal dots and lines are combined.


Why not make your own dots and fill them with wonderful and inspiring words? Spread dot-ish love, friendship, peace, excitement, curiosity. . .

Amy Krouse Rosenthal asks, “How do you want to be remembered?”

“What have you filled the world with? In remembering you, which words will others choose? I wonder. Don’t you? Of all the possible adjectives, I think that if the word ‘kind’ appears in the mix, chances are very good that you have led a life worthy of being remembered. Kindness acts as a worthy marker that way.”
