A UK mother has shared a photo of the adorable 'pay packet' a builder left her young son after they finished work on her house.

Steph Heathcote from East Yorkshire posted the note on Twitter, explaining her son Harry had become obsessed with the construction while her patio was underway. 

 "My six year old has loved going out and helping the builder, so it made his day to receive this," she wrote.

"What an example of kindness."

The 'pay packet' included a list of jobs Harry had done, such as 'passing bricks', 'taking pictures of black birds and spiders', 'asking why more times than I have ever heard anyone say why' and, of course, 'being a smashing little guy'.

The builder even made sure his little helper won't be hit with any unexpected surprises at tax time, deducting 'tax and national insurance' from the pay packet of £10 ($AUD18).

"It was such a nice touch and the guy was brilliant with him," Kemp tweeted.

"I just wanted to share how generous and lovely people can be".


The tweet had an overwhelming response, with more than 258,000 likes and 23,000 retweets.

 "A really nice gesture. I bet [he] loved the experience," one user commented.

'How gorgeous! Fantastic to see that there are still people in the world with a flair for kind-humour," tweeted another.

"That just restores my faith in humanity - little things like that go a massive way and the kids are like wee elephants 'they never forget'," another said.

"Harry will always remember this with more and more fondness as he gets older - well played."
