Acts of Kindness Family Scavenger Hunt

I recently spoke to a precious mom's group at my church about being 
intentional in doing acts of kindness.  
I LOVE speaking to folks about easy, practical, simple, 
inexpensive ways to love others and it was a sweet time sharing 
how committing to doing RAOK had been a blessing in my life 
& what the Bible has to say about blessing others.  

A few of my favorite verses about kindness are: 

The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed;
those who help others are helped.
Proverbs 11:25
And let us consider how we may spur one another
on toward love and good deeds.
Hebrews 10:24
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit.
Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to
your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.
Philippians 2: 3-4

I wanted to leave them with a little something to encourage them 
to do RAOK's with their children so I created an 
Acts of Kindness Family Scavenger Hunt.

The idea is simple- gather another family or two and set aside a few hours. 
Each family get a copy of the scavenger hunt list and a few hours to 
complete as many tasks as possible. 

The rules are simple: 
1. Be genuine in each one of the service tasks. Remember, this is a race, BUT the goal is to actually make someone’s day, not just be the first family to finish.
2. Put as much effort into each task as possible.
3. Be safe! Stick together and be smart about your service.
4. Take pictures along the way.
5. You have ______Hours to finish.
6. Have fun and enjoy serving those around you!

I even included little notes to print out and leave with your acts of kindness.

{Last year when I spoke to this group I created 
some acts of kindness activities for them to use with their children for
 both November and December. 
I shared the November idea HERE and the December idea HERE.}
