Clangers for Kindness

00:00

Who doesn't love the sweet and wonderful Clangers program.  It's one that I'm always happy to let the children watch on television as I know that it's going to show them a good example of characters being kind to each other and setting a good example for children.  So of course when we were asked to be a part of the Clangers for Kindness campaign we were happy to take part.



Ivy loves watching the Clangers and she loves playing with Clangers toys as well, what a wonderful way to start to bring the example of kindness into the home with some small world play with these adorable little toys.  We are also giving away these toys to one lucky winner, please enter below.



The main lesson that I teach my children each day is to treat others as they wish to be treated, but we do like to go above and beyond to be kind to people as well.  One of our favourite things to do together is baking.  This is the perfect way to have some fun family time together making something really special, that we can also share with others.  We definitely don't need to keep all of our baked goods for ourselves so we often bring over to our friends' houses for playdates to share with them.  Once in a while we make an especially big batch of cookies or muffins and package them up and deliver them to our neighbours.  The kids absolutely love making these surprise packages and drop them off on our neighbours doorsteps.



What sorts of kind things do you like to do together or encouraging your children to do? Please enter below for your chance to win some Clangers toys.
