As the world famous Betty Botter says at the end of our Too Many Cooks at Christmas show “int’ it nice and important to remember the ones you love at Christmas and all the different celebrations around the world”, and with World Kindness Day coming up this week we’d like to suggest a few ideas for you to spread that kindness to the ones you love.
Arts and crafts can be a fun thing to do with friends and family! Just spending that time together creates special moments and can be a fun, creative break for you, your friends and your family (and it’s always nice to bring the people you love around you as the nights draw in). And if you’re looking for inspiration, why not try shadow puppets – take a look at the ones we made for our Too Many Cooks at Christmas show…!
They were fun to make, and the best thing about them is that once you’ve made them, they can be reused again and again to create so many new and exciting stories around whichever characters you decide to create.
Another nice thing to do to spread kindness is to go out and say hello to new people, you never know that might be just what they’re looking for to feel better! A good way to do this for both kids and parents is to go and watch an interactive show like our Christmas performance. Here, parents can meet new people from different schools and have a giggle about one or two of the naughtier jokes in there! And kids can meet each other and roll about laughing from all the fart jokes that certainly aren’t lacking in our show!
And last, but by no means least, make sure to spend some time being kind to yourself. Make a nice cuppa and remember to look after yourself before the madness of the festive season begins.
