Kind Kids Spread Holiday Cheer by Making Ornaments

Be The Kind Kid started when two first graders approached their teacher about starting a "making" club.

Be The Kind Kid started when two first graders approached their teacher about starting a "making" club. Initially, they called themselves "JAM," which stood for Julia, Amelia and Maureen Frew, their teacher at Avonworh Primary Center.

Instead of making things for themselves, they created items, like their trademark #BeTheKindKid shirts, to donate or sell to help benefit charities. More classmates joined them. Sparkt was there when they got together after school to make cards and ornaments for people who might not otherwise have any holiday cheer.

The girls followed directions, waiting their turn to grab tinsel, bells and other materials they used to fill the glass ornaments. When they finished, Ms. Frew congratulated them, and reminded them that their act of kindness will make someone else's day.

Over 50 girls now make up the Be The Kind Kid club, meeting every Wednesday after school to help those less fortunate and to share what being kind means to them. This group also allows the girls to get to know each other and make new friends.
