Book Giving Day {Smiling Like Sunshine}

Last week we kicked off the 100 Acts of Kindness Project with our first challenge by Megan of Coffee Cups & Crayons. This week we received our second kindness challenge (issued by Kim from The Educators' Spin On It)!

Today Smiling Like Sunshine is sharing how we can be kind to children by giving them books!! I love how well her idea ties with this week's challenge given to us by The Educators' Spin On It!

Do you plan to participate in International Book Giving Day? 

Did you accomplish this week's challenge issued by The Educator's Spin On it?

Week 2 Challenge: Create a Love Books Package 

This week my kids and I put together a simple LOVE books package for my nieces. We included two Valentine's Day books:

There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Rose! and
The Very Fairy Princess Follows Her Heart

For activities, we included some Valentine's Day window clings and some stickers so the girls could make their own Valentines.

We also included some Valentine's Day M&Ms so that the girls could make love letters... and then eat them. :)

What book did you choose to give away? Did you come up with any fun activities or share any you found on your favorite blogs?

I would love to hear the creative ways that you accomplished this week's challenge, so share them in the comments!

  1. This is also great because it ties into International Book Giving Day which happens to be February 14th! To participate, you just give a book to any child.

    1. Yep, that is exactly what Smiling Like Sunshine's post is about. Such a great thing to participate in!
