SHOW AND TELL
This beautiful poem was written by two girls called Mia, for another little girl who has been quite poorly.
We have partnered with a very special company to bring you a brand new challenge. The Tur-Shirt Company makes ‘tur-shirts’ for children….which is like a t-shirt but with magical messages that only the wearer can read. The writing on a Tur-Shirt is written as a mirror-image, so it can only be read when you look at yourself in the mirror. We want YOU to design your very own Tur-Shirt!
Deadline: 8th July

KIND STORY OF THE WEEK
Six year old Daniel had all his birthday wishes come true thanks to the kindness of a crowd of concert-goers and singer Ed Sheeran. With the help of the crowd and a colourful hand-made sign, Daniel caught the singer’s attention at the concert in Belfast.
Not only did Ed spot Daniel and wish him well on his special day, but he also got the whole crowd to join him in singing Happy Birthday.
Speaking to BBC News NI, his mum, Danielle, said the kindness of other concert-goers made it all happen. They were quite far back but people in the crowd spotted his sign and wanted to let him through to the front. “People were so friendly and started giving Daniel high-fives and wishing him a happy birthday as they let us through without hesitation.”

We’d love to see what kind things you’ve been up to! If you’d like to share a photo of something kind you have done (for yourself or for someone else) ask a parent or guardian to send it to us.
Self-Kindness tip of the week:
Our Kindness Challenge this week is all about speaking kindly to ourselves..and your kindness tip is to do just that! Whether or not you’re taking part in our Kindness Challenge, we’d like you to have a go at saying something kind to yourself in the mirror. It might come naturally or it could feel a bit strange, but give it a try!
