5 Simple Random Acts of Kindness for Families
Get started by reading The Joy of Giving.
My kids love Berenstain Bears books and this one is a great option to use to get the focus on giving during the holiday season. Gather your kids together and read this book and then ask them what are some ways we can give and serve this month. Order this book here (affiliate link).
Make treats for the neighbors.
We have a yearly tradition of making up some treats and passing them out to our neighbors. Usually, we will walk, as a family, to each house passing out the treats. It has been such a good and simple way to remind the kids to show love to others. Add a simple Merry Christmas note to the treats and you are all set.

Make some of these delicious cookies as a festive option!
Create Christmas cards for others.
Tell your kids to think of someone they can make a Christmas card for. Then set out the paper, crayons, and markers and let them be creative.
Put together a basket of snacks for the delivery man.
With all of the package deliveries, we have either Amazon, Fed-Ex or UPS at our house on the regular. I love the idea to leave out some snacks as a thank you. Coffee, Pancakes, and Dreams shared a cute printable to go along with the basket!

Do something nice for someone.
Another great idea is to challenge your kids to do one nice thing for someone. When you set it up like a secret mission, it will make them even more excited. It is so fun to see the different ways the kids will find to show kindness to someone else.
