Teaching Courtesy Through Crafts and Games with Happy Heart Kid
Today we’re sharing four easy and fun ways to teach children courtesy through crafts and games. Courtesy is such an important social skill and what better way to teach this to children than through play. Thanks to Happy Heart Kid, it is now easier than ever, which is why we were so excited to be able to team up with Happy Heart Kid and share our honest review of their courtesy activity kit with you.

What You’ll Need
What to Do
Once you’ve received your Happy Heart Kid courtesy activity kit, open it up and select what you’d like to work on first. Each activity is individually wrapped which makes it very easy to stay organized. In the courtesy activity kit you will find:
- An activity book
- Courtesy bracelet making kit
- P’s and Q’s game
- Thank you card kit
We decided to start with the game and after decorating the game pieces and reading over the game instructions (which were super easy to follow), we were off and running! As we took turns rolling the die and answering the prompts about courtesy, Miss 6 told me this was her “favorite game ever!” We’d call that a win!
The kids had a blast decorating the game pieces. We were tempted to add yarn for hair and fabric for clothing to really customize them but in the end we decided to stick with the pens that were included with the kit. We thought they turned out pretty cute. 🙂
Next, we decided to make bracelets and were happy to see the abundance of beads that were supplied. We were able to make several bracelets and we love that each time the children wear their bracelets, they will be reminded to be courteous (the bracelets spell out “welcome,” “please,” and “excuse me.”
We then moved on to making our own stamps and cards, which was SO fun! The children were able to select the foam shapes they wanted and we then attached them to the plain wood blocks. Next they selected the pink stamp pad (there were two different colors to choose from), filled their stamps with ink, and stamped away. Then we oohed and aahed at all the colorful, fun patterns they made. After making a few cards to give away, we made a few more to keep and then spent some time working in the activity book.
The children happily spent hours working on the various activities and we were more than happy to spend the afternoon with them learning about being courteous.
We were very impressed with the quality of the items in the Happy Heart Kid courteous activity kit as well as the projects that were included and will definitely be checking out their other activity kits, which include (just to name a few):
