I am delighted to share with you these free advent acts of kindness printables. This year we have gone with an adorable bauble design. Wow, I can not believe that we have been doing acts of kindness at advent for the last three years!
I love Christmas and Advent, but a couple of years ago I realised that instead of preparing us for Christmas Day, it was becoming something of a wantfest for my boys. I am all for little daily treats during the dark days of December, however, I wanted to bring the true meaning of Christmas and Advent to my family.
Our kindness mission statement:
- Spread the word – encourage other people to join in and become happiness heroes
- Have fun and enjoy making other people happy
- To be kinder than you need to be
The husbeast and I talked about the fact that giving was so important and that I wanted to raise kind and generous children and came up with our alternative advent calendar. Our Acts of kindness. Then I chatted with the boys and we came up with a list of things that we could do over the season. We managed to come up with more than 24, in fact, we came up with 50 and I am sure that you can think of many more too.
Each year we pick 24 and I print them off and we try and do one each day over the advent season. Most are of non-monitory value, but they all make the boys and me think about giving and being kinder than we need to be.

How to use your Free Advent Acts of Kindness Printable
there are lots of different ways to use your printables. This year we have printed 24 off and I am going to place one into each of the pockets of our fabric advent calendar.
Previously we have printed all of them out and placed them into a jar and picked a random one out each day.
One year I stuck 24 of the acts of kindness in the shape of a Christmas tree onto our wall and each day to picked one to do.
