We’re big fans of the Clangers in our house. I loved watching reruns of the original series as a child and have no qualms admitting I still enjoy watching the new episodes. In addition, we were all lucky enough to attend the premiere of the new series last year.
The Clangers For Kindness campaign encourages everyone to spread kindness every day. Just like our little whistling friends do! They are welcoming to visitors to their planet, for starters. Something that a lot of people could learn from.
They also make us laugh a lot and I’ve always been a believer that sharing humour is a kind act in itself.
Dylan, Xander and Amelie get a lot out of watching Clangers. Naturally, Amelie is more interested in the colours and movement than anything else, but her brothers seem to get some of the messages.
A little sibling rivalry aside, they are generally nice to each other – much like Small and Tiny! Or maybe that should be the Soup Dragons; the other day, both Kate and I were feeling unwell. They decided they wanted to make lunch – soup and sandwiches – for us. We couldn’t let them use the oven, of course, but the kind thought was there. Unprompted and caring.
The kids in this video seem pretty clued up too!
To celebrate the Clangers for Kindness campaign, I have some Clangers toys to give away to one reader.

In the spirit of the approach taken by our little woolly friends, I’d like to know the last kind thing you did. Tell me via a blog comment.
