How do you countdown to Christmas with your family?
Do you use an advent calendar?
Our family has decided to try something new this year and do a Random Acts of Christmas Kindness Advent calendar!
We really enjoyed participating with Moms Fighting Hunger this fall and I thought this would be a fun way to bring the spirit of giving to the Christmas season.
We made a list of ideas for Random Acts of Christmas Kindness, but decided to keep it simple and not do a formal calendar.
This time of year is crazy and I wanted to make sure this project didn’t become a burden. We also didn’t choose 24 activities right away so we can tailor our RACKs to the things we encounter this month.
Today is Day 3 and we have been having a blast! On Day 1 we gave up our prime spot at the taping of the ABC Christmas Day parade at Walt Disney World to a father who had a daughter in the parade, on Day 2 we donated money to the poor through our church, and today we paid for coffee in the car behind us at Starbucks.
Want to use this RACK’d card too? Keep reading to see how to print it at home!
RACK’d Card Printable
I made a free Random Acts of Christmas Kindness printable that we hand out with each act of kindness. You can use it too for any RACKs you do this month.
- Just right click on it.
- Save it to your computer.
- Print on 4×6 inch photo paper–you can even have multiple copies made at Walgreens or an online photo site!
In addition to the list above we have also decided to try and visit a nursing home with some goodies, donate to our local Ronald McDonald House, and tell Nurturestore’s Christmas jokes to our friends. But we’ll still have room for more!
