The Art of Kindness from Children

The Middle School classroom (Grades 5 and 6) at CYF talked about “Kindness” after reading “Just Help! How to Build a Better World,” and they discussed how kindness isn’t always seen or spoken about. They said, “Doing an act of kindness can be unseen just as much as seen, and no less special and important.” As an art project, they used white crayons to write words and draw pictures on white paper. To anyone looking at the art, it would seem like just white pieces of paper. But, when they painted the artwork with watercolors, the words and pictures came through—showing that acts of kindness can be unseen by others — but seen by God — and very meaningful in our spiritual lives.
