My friend and I conducted a fun little experiment at Starbucks. You know how the barista takes drink orders for a few people in line before you get to the register to pay for it? Well… in honor of “Pay It Forward” day (THURSDAY April 26), my friend and I paid for the beverages of the two people in line behind us. We asked the sweet barista gal not give us away, but to simply say “the person paying for your drink asked that you pay it forward.” We then sat down and watched as the recipients smiled and looked around. And guess what?! They then paid for the person behind them! My friend and I smiled and giggled mischievously as a warm fuzzy ran through our bodies!
Check out these fun pay it forward ideas for elementary students:
FREEZE TAG – Play freeze-tag and “unfreeze” the person by saying something kind about them.
We love to show off how other schools creatively reward good deeds! Kudos!
