On May 16, the folks from KIND and zulily will partner for Kindness Safaris to be held at 20 Zoos across the country. For friends in my home City of Chicago, Lincoln Park Zoo will be the center of the action from 10am-5pm, where families can take part in the safari, and kids can discover how being kind through simple acts can be fun, and really brighten the world around us. It’s all part of the ongoing Kind Parents, Kind Kids program, which uses fun family activities to teach kids the importance of kindness year-round.
The Kindness Safari will feature:
- A scavenger hunt booklet with interactive kindness activities inspired by animals (i.e. see a bear; give somebody in your family a bear hug).
- A flower wall in which attendees can take a flower upon leaving and pass on to someone else.
- A take-home kindness kit that comes in a complimentary lunch tote that kids can color on.
