Last year, for Addie’s Advent Calendar, I wrapped small gifts and attached numbers so each day, she opened the gift with the number that corresponded with the date.
I had several ideas in my head about advent gifts this year and was googling a bit and found this Kindness Advent Calendar. There’s also a blank one where you can fill in your own “acts”.
I decided I’ll do the same thing will little trinket type gifts but she has to do whatever is suggested on that day in order to get the gift. I’m about 90% certain we’ll have a place there by December 1 and if we do, I hope to spend the entire month of December there and stay til after school starts in January so I’ll be there to do most of these things. I called Nicole to make sure IF we don’t get a place there, she’ll help Addie with the things she needs help with.
I’ll probably do the “type in your own” version and make anything that involves baking or going somewhere so they can do that on weekend.
It’s a great idea to teach our children and grandchildren, not only with words but with actions also, to be kind.
