Each day places an emphasis on service, to promote K-Kids within homes, schools and communities, and to make K-Kids a household name.

Not a K-Kids club but still want to help promote K-Kids Week? Scroll to the bottom to find out how!
Show your K-Kids pride—tell everyone you know about K-Kids by spreading the word about it. It’s easy! Wear your official K-Kids gear and member button, host a party with free food for other students to come and learn more about your club, or print and pass out K-Kids stickers! You can event make a video, song, or posters about K-Kids beforehand to share on this day!
Kudos to the helpers—Personally thank all of the K-Kids supporters you know—teachers, principals, advisors, community leaders, Kiwanians, parents and others. Make thank you cards or crafts, write thank you notes, host an appreciation party, deliver a special song or performance, or do something uniquely your own style to recognize the contributions of these people.
Share with parents and families—Share your K-Kids club and your passion for serving others with your biggest cheerleaders—your parents! Host a show-and-tell party to show off the club’s work, make a special presentation, invite local organizations your club has helped to speak on your club’s impact, or invite the sponsoring Kiwanis club to share the mission of Kiwanis and your club’s impact.
Random acts of kindness—A smile goes a long way. Spread happiness throughout your school by doing little random acts of kindness, such as holding the door open for someone, putting change in a vending machine, doing a chore around the house, or leaving a nice note in a library book. Challenge every member to complete at least one random act of kindness.
Connect the Kiwanis family—K-Kids is the largest elementary school service organization in the world and is the youngest club within the Kiwanis family. Celebrate the entire family of Kiwanis by engaging with all local Kiwanis family clubs—Builders Club, Key Club, Circle K, Aktion Club and Kiwanis.
Ask your sponsoring Kiwanis club to present about the Kiwanis family, host a service project and invite other Kiwanis family clubs to participate, or ask to present about your K-Kids club’s work at a Kiwanis family club’s upcoming meeting.
