How to Plan Christmas Acts of Kindness with Kids

Sharing is caring!

The holiday season is a wonderful time to plan Christmas acts of kindness! Why?

First, people seem especially receptive to receiving acts of kindness this time of year.  I mean, come on–wouldn’t you love for someone to give you a random act of kindness during the hectic Christmas season?

Second (and most importantly), Christmas acts of kindness are such an incredible way for us to live out the Christian principles of humility, giving, service and love. What a better time to do this than during the season when we celebrate God’s greatest gift to mankind–the birth of Jesus?

OK, so we get it–Christmas acts of kindness rock.

But let’s get real: How do you actually plan and orchestrate something like that?

Especially there are several acts of kindness you want to do and if you’d like to make it a family activity for everyone to participate in?

Great question! I have two suggestions: Make a plan; and make it fun.

Now you could spend a ton of time online and try to accumulate a whole bunch of different acts of kindness activities. But, come on. You’re a mom! And it’s Christmas! Do you really have time to be plowing through page after page compiling a list?

I think you know the answer to that.

4 Reasons Why This System Makes Christmas Acts of Kindness Easy and Fun

Plug and Play. Girl, with this system, the Christmas Acts of Kindness are already figured out for you! No guessing or compiling. Just print, cut and go!

Great Fun for Kids. Kids can take turns grabbing each day’s slip and reading what’s planned. Or if you’d like to plan out each day’s act of kindness in advance, you can pin the slips in order on a banner. Fold over the top (so that it’s a secret for the kids!) and enjoy opening them up each day to reveal the activity. It’s a wonderful family tradition that makes the truths of the Christmas story become powerful and personable!

Fully Customizable. There are 30 acts of kindness ideas, but of course you don’t have to do all of them! Just do the activities that would be a good fit for your family and that make sense for your schedule. Perhaps you choose to do acts of kindness on Sunday afternoons as part of your Advent tradition. Since the system also contains several blank slips, you can add in your own Christmas Acts of Kindness ideas should a fun idea strike your fancy.

Engage and Go Deeper. Partner these Christmas Acts of Kindness with the 30 Day Christmas Countdown Bible Study that’s also a part of the Christ-Centered Christmas Family Traditions System! Together, these activities are a wonderful way to pair learning about God and then putting the truths in action!

Along with the bible study, the system also contains several Bible response tools that encourage your family to really consider and apply what they’ve learned that day.

In fact, the Christ-Centered Christmas Family Traditions System includes these incredible scripture response tools:

  • Christmas adult and kids coloring pages with scriptures or hymns
  • “5Rs” inductive Bible Study Method sheets (learn more about my Bible study method here)
  • Half and full page journaling pages
  • Bible study memory cards (themed to each section of the study!)
  • Home decor pieces that kids can draw on as a way to share what they’ve learned




And this is only one tiny part of the Christ-Centered Christmas Family Traditions System! Along with the 30 Christmas Acts of Kindness, it also includes everything you need for:

  • 30 Day Christmas Countdown Bible Study (an awesome interactive Christmas activity for you and your kids as well)
  • Scripture response tools (as described above)
  • “Birthday Gift for Jesus” Christmas morning activity (my family’s favorite Christmas activity!)
  • Christ-centered, customizable home decor (that you and your family can make together!), including banner pieces, and 8 x 10 and 5 x 5 full-color art!

You can see them all in action here!

The Christ-Centered Christmas Family Traditions System includes everything you need to finally discover the Christ-Centered Christmas you and your family long for!
