Today for our #31DaysOfActivites we are discussing all things kindness. Sometimes, children do understand the concept of being kind, but have a tough time understanding how to put it into action. This little kindness bingo game can actually help change that and get your kids to finally take action and, have some fun while they’re at it.
We actually have two games for you today – inspired by the wonderful new book from Becky Goddard-Hill; Create Your Own Kindness! One is a traditional bingo game that you can play with your kids all around the topic of kindness. The other is a bingo game with that has little boxes for your kids to tick off once they have completed the corresponding kindness activity. Let’s take a look at the bingo games.
How to play kindness bingo
It is actually as simple as playing Bingo, because that’s what it really is. Once they have completed a square they can colour it in.
We have a few different ideas within each of the squares for what your children can do to help spread a little kindness as well as show you which icon goes with the act of kindness.
- Give your pocket money to charity – the piggy bank
- Help make dinner – the empty plate surrounded by food
- Share your toys/play a game with your family – the bundle of toys
- Pass a book you have loved on to a friend – the 3 books
- Give someone a compliment – the red waving hand print
- Call your grandparents – the red phone
- Make your teacher a thank you card – the teacher
- Smile and say hello to a passerby – the smiley face
- Make a ‘be kind’ poster for your window – the window
- Bake some cookies for a neighbour – the stack of cookies
- Tell someone a funny joke – the laughing child
- Read someone a story – the child reading a book
As well as these, there are 4 blank squares – making a 4 x 4 grid. Clearly. 😂 These are to be used to create your own ideas for kindness that you and your kids come up with.

When the bingo square is complete why not celebrate with a favourite movie and some popcorn!
If you want a different idea for game night, try a traditional kindness themed bingo game.

Another part to this activity is the second printable that we have for you around the topic of kindness. This traditional bingo game around the topic of kindness. This is a fun for a family game night and is just a simple bingo game that includes counters for you to play with your kids.
You can also take it a step further by discussing each activity and what the kids plan to do when it’s time for them to tick off the kindness activity off their list in the other game. Again, there are 4 blank boxes so you and your kids can create your own kindness ideas to include into the bingo game.
