Mission Description

For this mission you need to do a random act of kindness. If you’ve never done a random act of kindness before, it is really simple. First, you choose a person or people that will receive your act of kindness. Then you need to think of something really nice to do for them. Try to think of something they’ll really like! It is even more fun if you keep it all a secret!

Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. – Colossians 3:12 NIV

What We Did

This is the last mission! Can’t believe we are already to the end of July!

After I read the mission and explained to K what a “random act of kindness” is he got to work brainstorming. First, he thought of people he wanted to do something nice for (I wrote them down) and then together we came up with something we could do for them.

Make cookies!


K drew some cookies next to our list of people and then we got started!


K wanted to make chocolate chip cookies and I was happy to oblige (my favorite!).


While the cookies were baking, K worked on making some notes to go with them.


I even snuck in some name writing practice – don’t you just love those first attempts at writing? So cute!


When the cookies were all done we packaged them up and took a walk around the neighborhood to drop them off at some friends! It was a fun afternoon activity and a good introduction to doing something nice “just because.”

What’s your favorite random act of kindness?
