It's Thanksgiving! In our house we reflect on the things in our lives that we are truly grateful for before we indulge in our Thanksgiving feast. This year has brought a lot of changes, many unexpected, and it seems especially important to count our blessings this year.
As we were preparing menus for the holidays, and putting together our normal holiday rituals, we decided to take a new spin on our advent calendar. (Last year we bought an easy calendar with a small chocolate treat for each day.) As we thought about different ideas, small presents and chocolate just didn't seem appropriate this year. After researching some different ideas, we settled on a "Kindness Calendar". To celebrate the holiday season, and spread some cheer to others, we will complete an act of kindness each day.
We put together a simple calendar for our family, but if you are looking for an easy DIY for your family, you should check out Lovely Indeed's Acts of Kindness Calendar with free printables. Stay tuned for updates!
