Thanksgiving Acts of Kindness and Service Project Ideas

Our family has done a 30-day Acts of Kindness Challenge for several years now and there are many ideas there that would inspire Thanksgiving service project ideas! Check out all the ideas here.

We all love random acts of kindness, right? What a blessing when someone does a kind deed for us... and when we're able to put our love in action by sharing a kindness with someone else! And since February 17 is National Random Acts of Kindness Day, Your Vibrant Family is hosting a 30 Day Random Acts of Kindness Challenge throughout February! Join YVF each week for a stress free and fun challenge with suggested activities around that week’s theme, along with discussion questions and Bible verses! Do as much or as little as you’d like—customize it and make it work for your family!

And I’ve also gathered a list of 67 awesome Random Acts of Kindness ideas for kids! It’s one of my most popular posts of all time!




This Gratitude Garage Sale from The Educators Spin On It is a fantastic idea that all of us could easily implement! Bravo for this practical way that kids can help those who are hungry!
