Project Rangeet: Kindness Bucket

Make and fill a "bucket" for each family member with kind words to help them feel good!
Age Groups: Big Kids, Little Kids
Skills: Empathy, Feelings


  • Paper, Scissors, Colored Pencils/Crayons/Markers, Other Art Supplies to Decorate


  • Let's watch Carol McCloud read aloud her book "Have You Filled a Bucket Today?"
  • Now let's make buckets for each member of OUR family or class and fill them with kind thoughts!
  • We can cut two-dimensional buckets out of paper or make buckets out of cardboard boxes. Let's decorate the buckets!
  • Now let's write or draw at least one kind message for each member of our family or classroom — including ourselves! — and put it into the right bucket.
  • How do you feel when your bucket fills up? How do you feel when you help to fill up someone else's bucket? How does it make them feel?
  • Let's talk about things we've done recently to fill our own buckets and our friends' and family members' buckets.
