Spreading “Extra” Kindness in Our Community | Free Printable

This is a sponsored post.extra-gum-printable-gift-tagi am always looking for ways to teach my boys that giving to others is important, and not only makes others feel special but also yourself feel good as well. knowing you brightened someone else’s day is a great feeling. i have been reflecting a lot this Thanksgiving season, and have been feeling so much gratitude for my life, and decided i wanted to spread some kindness to those in my community that make it such a nice place to live. i got together with my boys, and we decided it would be fun to leave happy gifts all over our community to random people in order to brighten their day. our plan was to wrap up packages of Extra Gum with a cute tag and leave them anonymously in places that strangers would find them. i would call this giving Extra in a fun and exciting way!

so i ran to the store and grabbed a bunch of Extra Gum in a variety of yummy flavors. extra-sugarless-gum

i designed a little gift tag to tie onto our Extra Gum packages. it says “A little something EXTRA to brighten your day.” short and sweet to go with the EXTRA theme. click here for the free printablekindness-free-printable-tag then cut the tags out with a 2-1/2 circle punch and got some bakers twine
