    Read “Tag, You’re It!” (page 4). Have you ever stood up for someone like Lauren did for Ally? Has anyone ever stood up for you? Use the activity below to talk about how you can be kind if someone’s being left out or bullied.

    Be sure to get an adult’s help with this activity and recipe.

    Passing Kindness

    1. Write each question below on a separate piece of paper. You can also add questions of your own.

    2. Wrap one piece of paper around a small shareable treat, like a small bag of chocolate candies or fruit snacks. Tape the paper in place.

    3. Add the next paper and tape it down. Keep going until you’ve used all the papers and have a medium-sized ball.

    4. Pass the ball around and take turns unwrapping a paper and answering the question. When you get to the end, share the treat!
