Are you looking for ways to help your children celebrate Christmas by sharing kindness with others? It’s natural for children to be excited about receiving gifts at Christmas, and there’s nothing wrong with that. But we also need to help our children learn that Christmas is a time for sharing kindness and love with others. It’s a time for giving–not just receiving. This Christmas Kindness Calendar is a fun and easy way to help your children focus on giving and doing things for others during the Christmas season.
Some of these suggestions require money or the ability to buy something for someone else. Some of them are completely (or almost) free! If you’re not able to commit financially to the items that require money, just skip those and do the ones that are free or very inexpensive instead. There’s no need to feel like you have to complete every item on this calendar, either. Do the ones that fit your family, schedule, and circumstances. Leave the others for another year.
Also, you’ll notice that this calendar doesn’t have days on it. It’s simply a countdown. I created it this way so that you can print it out and use it year after year if you’d like to do that.
I do hope this Christmas Kindness Countdown is a blessing to your family and to those who are the recipients of your kindness during this Christmas season! And if you have suggestions for other ways you can show kindness during the Christmas season, please share them with us in the comments!

2020 has been quite a year! It’s definitely one we’ll never forget! But I’m thankful we’ve made it to the holiday season – a time for gratitude, togetherness, and celebration. To celebrate the holiday season (and 2020 coming to and end!) we’ve teamed up with some of our favorite bloggers for the 7th annual Christmas Blessings Giveaway with hopes of making this holiday season memorable in a good way for TWO families by giving away $500 in PayPal cash to each family.
While we wish we could bless many more families, we were able to come up with a big prize for TWO families – $500 each (delivered via Paypal) – that we pray will make a big difference in their lives this Christmas season – whether it’s to fulfill their kids’ Christmas wishes, pay off some bills, or to help build some savings, our prayer is that it helps to lessen any financial burden and/or fills a specific need, or simply brightens your day.
There are lots of entry options in the Rafflecopter form below – the more you enter, the better your chance of winning! I know it can seem tedious and time consuming to go through all the entries, but isn’t a chance at $500 worth it? I think it is! Plus, all of these amazing bloggers donated their own money toward the cash prizes, so this giveaway wouldn’t be possible without them. I hope you’ll take the time to check out each one. Who knows, maybe you will find some new blogs to follow.
The giveaway will run from Monday, November 16th through Wednesday, November 25th (ends at 11:59pm EST). Winner will be notified by email shortly after the giveaway ends and will have 48 hours to respond to claim the prize or another winner will be drawn. You must have a Paypal account to win. By entering this giveaway, you agree to be added to the email lists of the participating bloggers. Please be sure to read the Rafflecopter terms and conditions upon entering.
