Raise your hand if you would love a fun way to teach your kids about being kind to others.
Now raise your hand if your kids love doing fun crafts.
If you are like me then you have both hands in the air and are waving frantically to both of these questions!
As parents, we want to really instill in our kids a love for people just as God has.
And while teaching them about kindness is wonderful, it’s always great to SHOW them in a hands-on visual way that they can understand.
That’s why I wanted to make this super fun Bible-based craft that isn’t just for kids, but the whole family to work together and show different acts of kindness to people around you!
Download below, enjoy, and stick around for some fun and unique ways you can use this acts of kindness tree craft!

How To Use This Acts Of Kindness Tree Craft + What You’ll Need:
This is such a great activity that your kids will love and give you the opportunity to teach them about kindness and blessing others!
All you need for this craft is:
- Printer – I love this printer from amazon
- Laminator and laminating sheets (optional) – we have used this same pink lamnitor + laminating sheets for over a year and have had ZERO issues, I’d highly recommend it!
- White cardstock paper 8.5×11
- Washable stamp pads – these stamps pads are washable and NON toxic, super important for little hands!
I recommend printing on cardstock, that way the stamp/paint won’t bleed through. Once you have completed your tree, you can laminate it and hang it up as a reminder to always be kind!
After each person completes a random act of kindness, they can place their thumb in the stamp color (I recommend either red, orange, and yellow to make it a fall tree, or shades of green for year-round) and stamp it on the tree!
Once you are done it will look like a beautiful piece of art, and you can reflect on the acts of kindness that you all did for the tree to “bloom.”
Complete and Use as Thanksgiving Wall Art
This would be a great activity to add to your family’s Thanksgiving traditions this year!
During the month of October and November, you can complete any of the 25 acts of kindness and fill out your tree.
Once you are done, like I mentioned earlier you can use it as beautiful wall art and a reminder of kindness in your home. 🙂
Or feel free to place it in a cute frame and add it as tabletop decor in your office, on the fireplace mantle, the kitchen island, somewhere where everyone can see!
Use During Family Bible Time
You could definitely add this craft to your family Bible time! Take an evening and read over some scriptures about kindness and then do this activity together.
You won’t be able to complete it in ONE sitting, but you can talk about it and bring it up the next few weeks as a reminder for everyone to be looking out for opportunities to be kind.
Make it a big deal for when someone gets to put a stamp on the tree. 🙂
You could pair it with a family devotion about kindness to introduce the activity to your kids!
I hope you and your family enjoy making some great memories together and creating this beautiful kindness tree craft!
But more importantly, that the Lord will help you teach your kids about showing kindness to others, and see His kindness towards you as well. 🙂
