Welcome to the Kids’ Kindness Club!
Being kind is the best thing you can be. So we’ve created a Kindness Club just for kids. If you haven’t already, click here to join the club (it’s free!) and you will receive our fortnightly Kindness Club email.
In this video, Greig tells us what mental health is and why it is so important. We have a new challenge for you and we’re announcing the winners of our Summer Kindness Challenge. Remember to look out for Ned Kindlebottom!

SHOW AND TELL
To mark World Teachers’ Day, children from St. Bede Primary School in Winchester have been conducting secret shout-outs to members of staff. We reviewed their messages and after much deliberation, we would like to celebrate Mr Winter. He received shout-outs for many reasons, including: for always making me smile; making the days go quickly; making lessons fun; helping me believe in myself and making me laugh with your jokes! Congratulations, Mr Winter, a special certificate is coming your way.
KIND STORY OF THE WEEK
After struggling with their own mental health growing up, friends Shaun and Paul wanted to do something to help others live a more positive life. Shaun was a primary school teacher and Paul was a life coach – so they put their skills together and came up with a brand called Spiffy – The Happiness Shop (www.livespiffy.co.uk).
They opened a shop and have hundreds of products ‘specially chosen or created to help make people’s lives happier’. Their product ‘Remindfuls – Mindful Reminders for Kids’ has inspired our kind challenge this week where you are invited to make your own self-care mantra.
We’re back for story time! Thanks to Fox, age 6 from Essex who watched last week’s story twice because he loved it so much! This week, we have chosen ‘I’m (Almost) Always Kind’ by Anna Milbourne. We hope you enjoy watching at home or in the classroom!
It is read today by Tanya, who is working with us here at the Kids’ Kindness Club!

SHARE YOUR STORIES
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:
Try saying a daily mantra to your reflection in the mirror. It could be: ‘I believe in you’ or ‘You can do amazing things’ or simply, ‘Take time to rest today.’
While you are there, why not give yourself a high five and give yourself a new daily routine?!
