Here at Mini Professors we're so excited to be taking part in Children's Activities Week 2022.
During Children's Activities Week, in classes all over the country, thousands of people come together to take part in fun activities to help raise awareness and fundraise to support disabled children.
Since its inception Children’s Activities Week has raised over £175,000 and helped provide life-changing support for autistic and disabled children all over the UK through the charity, Caudwell Children.
This year's theme is 'kindness.' In the run up to this week children have been spreading goodwill around the country with our kindness bingo and raising money for Caudwell children.
If the last few years have taught us anything, it is the true value in being kind. Whether it is checking in on friends & family, supporting our key workers or helping a neighbour, the pandemic has certainly brought us closer together, even if we have had to stay physically apart.
There are lots of things we can do to be kind to both others and ourselves. And you may have already begun taking part in our main activity 'Kindness Bingo.'
But if you haven't, don't worry, it's not too late to start.
Simply grab a 'kindness bingo card' from your Mini Professors class practitioner, read the instructions and ask your friends and family to sponsor your child for each act of kindness they complete!

At Mini Professors our classes are about so much more than science!
Whilst Mini Professors classes are primarily here to provide your little ones with the opportunity to learn about science they also teach them many other skills too!
From developing their fine motor skills and hand strength to supporting their social milestones and social play, there's so much that your child takes away from a Mini Professors class.
During our classes we also like to promote kindness. There are many things that we do to practise being kind. Sharing with other children and taking turns are ways in which we can practise being kind to others. We can also act kindly towards ourselves and others when we don't get things right first time or when we achieve something for the first time!
However, this year we are taking the theme of kindness to a whole new level, as part of Children's Activities Week. Children in our Mini Professors classes will be taking part in sponsored acts of kindness to help spread goodwill around the country and raise money for Caudwell Children.
