35 Thoughtful Random Acts of Kindness Calendar
Whether you’re looking for something meaningful to do around the holidays (this calendar with random acts of kindness is one of my family’s favorite & fun Christmas tradition) or simply want to do a month of simple, yet incredibly meaningful acts of kindness within your family and for others, you’re in the right spot.
This 35-day Random Acts of Kindness Calendar is perfect for all ages (even toddlers can do most of these sweet and simple tasks!)
The daily tasks are often simple, take only a few minutes, don’t cost a thing and can instantly turn someone’s day around.
There’s nothing that feels better than doing something nice for another person, and watch their reaction, whether it’s a simple “thank you” or a smile that lights up the room, seeing a positive, happy reaction from another person who you’ve done something nice for, is a pretty great feeling.
It’s also an important teaching tool for parents to gift to their children – that the simplest and kindest acts, often mean the most and you don’t have to spend any money to do them.
Using this as an Acts of Kindness Advent Calendar for Christmas or the New Year
If you’re looking for acts of kindness to do around December and the holiday season, then these simple tasks will focus on giving, being kind, put the focus on love and meaningful time spent with others… and far, far away from buying gifts and accumulating material objects.
We follow the 5 Gift Rule of Want, Need, Read and Wear in our house, and while my kids still receive gifts, the focus is really on the immaterial things and keeps the heart of the holiday season in the right place.
One of the things my kids love year-after-year are doing nice things for others and planning secret fresh baked cookie drops and buying gifts for other kids who are less fortunate. They can’t wait to plot their good deeds for the month of December.
You can use this calendar to count down to Christmas morning or even the start of the new year.

Most of all, have fun!
