a gift.


when someone in our class

got injured while playing outside

the kinder quickly sprang into action

creating art and cards for their friend

23 pieces of art from 14 children

given to her to know she was cared about

 a quiet smile was her gift back to them. 


“making art is like giving a gift: evidence of your spirit and that you are here.”

  1. We need so many more of these moments with the future generation to free us from worry that things will only continue to get worse. I love the idea of the other kinders caring so much as to immediately put their caring into art.

  2. This is one of the things I like best about kids. Their hearts are so pure and kind, and they don’t worry about what someone else thinks. We can all take a lesson from them.

    • oh, you’re so right. I think children are naturally compassionate and know what today when a friend is hurt or unhappy. our job is for all of us to support and encourage them in their efforts.
