It’s December 1st, you guys, and we are starting our Advent calendar today! Several years ago, I bought an Advent calendar for the kids. I used to fill it with candy and small treats, but for the last few years, I have been putting simple acts of kindness in it, too. The kids (even Hunter) take turns opening the doors every morning and then they all complete the task in each section. Some of them are things they can do on their own (like holding the door for others and giving honest compliments) and some of them we do as a family (like making “blessing bags” to keep in our car for those in need).
I put together a quick printable with all of our Acts of Kindness for this season and I thought I would share it with you today, in case you would like to do them, too.
If you don’t have an Advent calendar, you could put the squares in a jar or container and draw one to complete each day, play Kindness Bingo, or simply cross one off each day! Or check out one of these Advent calendars here, here, or here! Just click here to download your free printable. I hope you’ll follow along with us!
