Kindness Catcher

With paper, scissors and pencils, allow children to make folding “catchers” (also called “origami fortune tellers”), with their kind acts written inside the various flaps. (There are assembly instructions online). The kind acts should also be reminders of how to handle conflict. Each catcher should have 8 flaps with writing on them.
