Making A Difference Printables
These activities are based on our specific set of Making A Difference posters and other printables which look at ways that children can make a difference in everyday life. We hope they will inspire them to think about ways to be kind, to be helpful and so on - and of course these are just a few scenarios, and there are plenty more ways to discuss.
