Valentine’s Day is for everyone with love in their heart and ready to pay it forward. It can be a great and fun way for caregivers and children to bond and a perfect class project for teachers. Teaching them important social-emotional skills in the process.
To help you on your way, we came up with a FREE downloadable pdf with compliment cards. With everything that is going on in the world, now more than ever, it's important we teach our children the act of kindness.
Teaching kindness is not only good for the recipient, but it helps the giver feel good about themselves too, enhancing their self-esteem. It’s a win-win!
Learning how to give and accept compliments is such an important aspect when growing up. We often forget the power and effect it can have. Not only will it help to foster healthy connections, but it will also help build a growth mindset: learning how to be supportive of one another without judgment or resentment, which in return will help build self-esteem.
Of course, I would love to see you spreading the love and sharing your little one's acts of kindness.
So from today (February 1st) until February 14th (2019), post and tag your child compliment cards with the hashtag #mapleforestvalentine. On Valentine’s Day, I will pick a winner! The winner can choose a midi doll of choice, accompanied by all affirmation cards.
(All countries can participate)
Don't feel like coloring, but would love to share some compliments? We've got you covered! Maple Forest' amazing illustrator Niki Stage made some pretty awesome examples. You can download the already colored versions here for Dutch, and here for English.
Have fun everyone!
Much love, Femke
