Week 1

Let’s start off week 1 by showing ourselves compassion. When we show ourselves compassion we also learn how to show others compassion.

Day 1 (Courage) January 30th 2021

Have a parent light a candle for you. Make a wish for peace, then release it by blowing the candle out. Note ** If you don’t want to use a candle, use a dandelion instead!

Day 2 (Smile) January 31st 2021

Smile at least three people who look different from you. Make everyone feel welcomed with a kind smile!

Tell every member of your family one thing that you like about them.

Day 4 (Caring) February 2nd 2021

Tell a parent, or write down a list of 3 things that you do to take care of yourself. Taking care of yourself is just as important as helping others!

Finish the following sentence by saying something good about yourself:
