Vines of Kindness

Updated: Sep 19, 2019

Hello Gardeners!


There are a handful of plants that love to climb tall, spread their reach far & wide, and create strong woven networks by wrapping around itself. Have you ever seen them? They are called vines! When vines are healthy they can grow extremely large very quickly and grow so strong they can tear down porches and other structures.



What if the energy and food that fueled the growth of vines was kindness? Kindness spreads by sharing something thoughtful with a friend, helping a stranger, or encouraging a classmate. When we work together we create strong support systems, so why don't we give it a try?


What you'll need:


Colored pencils

Hole punch

Green yarn/ribbon/string

Copies of the leaf cutout below


Have your students write their kind moments on the leaf, color the leaves, and attach them to the string using the punch hole at the base of the cutout. Hang your vines of kindness throughout your classroom and watch the kindness spread!


Did you try this in your classroom? We would love to see the results! Email flowers@youareagardener.com or tag @youareagardener. Always remember to be kind to one another and don't forget to #PullYourWeeds!
