Random Acts of Kindness Christmas Countdown Calendar
We’ve created this awesome resource to share some ideas for random acts of kindness for kids, and for parents to set the example leading the way with their own random acts of kindness advent calendar.
We’ve created this printable tool for you to spread kindness every day during December, leading up until Christmas Day. The world needs kindness more than ever. Not only does the world need this kindness spread, we need to be the givers of the acts of kindness.
“Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.” ~ Colossians 3:12
Giving is the Theme of Advent
Do you know that the Bible talks more about the theme of giving than faith, hope and love combined but yet we often overlook this? As we count down in the season of advent the days where we remember Jesus being given to us as a newborn gift, let us follow in His actions by celebrating simple giving. This printable will fill you with ideas for random acts of kindness daily.
In our family, giving, tithing and stewardship of what God has entrusted to us as a family is paramount. We’ve been using a similar tool as this random acts of kindness calendar for years, so as a gift to you, our 2017 advent version is here!
Ideas for kids include:
- Hold the Door for Someone
- Call a long-distance relative and say hello.
- Take cookies to the fire station.
- Bring in a neighbor’s trash bins.

Lovely idea! Sounds like you are heading for a perfect simple and cosy Christmas – the best kind. We just moved to Vancouver Island from the UK – so this is our first Christmas without family nearby – we are planning something similar, just us and the children.
