Fun family activities delivered to your door each month, specially designed to help you bring your little ones up with important life values.

Brought to you by

Thanks for your interest in Little Heroes! We’re all out of activity packs at the moment. If you would like information about when more activity packs will be available, please email us at littleheroes@redcross.org.uk.

What is Little Heroes?

Little Heroes is a new way to help families bring values like kindness to life, while helping to support the British Red Cross at the same time.

The activities are for kids of all ages, but we think 3 to 8 year olds in particular will love them!

How it works

1

Sign up to Little Heroes membership for a monthly donation of £7.50, and we’ll send you activities in the post each month.

2

Your monthly pack will focus on one of the four values: kindness, gratitude, patience and humour.

3

There are 48 activity cards to collect over the 12 months, with bonus surprises along the way! *

Once your journey to Little Hero status is complete, we hope you continue to support the British Red Cross with an ongoing donation.

* As your membership with Little Heroes is a donation to the British Red Cross, you're in total control and can stop at any time.

This giant knows that gratitude releases the brain’s happy chemicals. Heroes who are great at saying ‘thank you’ tend to be better at dealing with life’s bumps in the road and are more trusting of others.

Patience Pal

Patience Pal knows that good things come to those who wait and can help your little heroes learn how to stay calm and relaxed. Research has found that heroes who can wait patiently tend to be happier, less stressed and more hopeful for the future!

FAQs

Where does my money go?

By signing up to Little Heroes you’ll be supporting the work of the British Red Cross - a charity that helps people in crisis all over the world.

How often will I receive a Little Heroes activity pack?

Activity packs will be delivered monthly for a total of 12 months. We send the packs out at the end of each month so that you and your little hero know when to expect your goodies through the door! Postage is already paid on the packs and they should fit straight through your letterbox - simple!

What age ranges are Little Heroes designed for?

The activities can be enjoyed by children of all ages, but we think children between three and eight will particularly enjoy them!

How long do activities take?

Each pack comes with a range of activities in to suit different times of the day! The fast and fun activities can be as short as one minute, the energetic ones can take around half an hour, and the conversational and craftsy ones can last even longer if you want them to. The activities are designed to be adaptable and fit into parents’ busy schedules.
