Cuddle + kind dolls
This time of year means apple picking, pie making, family feasts, and preparation for the holiday season. The fall is also a great time to focus on giving back with kids. Wondering how to get your young kids involved in giving? Demonstrate how by embracing something that interests them. Cuddle + kind dolls are a great way to teach children who love soft and squishy stuffed animals how to give back to other kids in our country and around the world.
My kids are allllllll about it! They already bring their favorite dolls and stuffed animals with us everywhere (not joking). To the grocery store, to amusement parks, to Grandma’s house, anywhere! To my kids, their dolls and stuffed animals are real. They all have names and they all like to do different things. I love that kind of compassion and imagination in little kids and I encourage their thoughtful feelings towards their toys. Cuddle + kind dolls help our family give, which makes them even more important to us.
Every cuddle + kind doll makes a difference by feeding children in need. For every 1 doll purchased, 10 meals are given to hungry children around the world.
As a teacher, I’ve seen how little hungry bellies change everything about what a child is capable of. All kids get hungry, but not all kids have food to make the hunger stop. Without food, kids can’t play like they should, their minds can’t explore, and they can’t learn the way they deserve to.
The thought of hungry children brings tears to my eyes (you too?). Can a cuddle change a child’s world? Smart School House thinks so! Watch this video and let me know if you got chills like I did:
Teaching my kids about how important it is to give back starts by using things that interest them and things they can relate to. That’s why cuddle + kind dolls are jus the right fit for our family.
Stella loves Chloe the Bunny and Chelsea the Cat.
Mitch loves Scout the Deer and Everest the Penguin.
There are 9 handmade cuddle + kind dolls to choose from, and my favorite happens to Benedict the Bunny. I mean, how cute are his glasses?! Which cuddle + kind doll is your favorite?
The key to teaching children about giving is by allowing them to create meaning with their actions.
Get started by joining your family in giving 10 meals to hungry kiddos today! I also think they make very meaningful Christmas gifts to teachers and friends.
