Create Your Own 2022 Kindness Advent Calendar

Christmas is as much about giving as it is receiving, if not more. Something I have done for the past few Christmas seasons, is to create a kindness advent calendar. I get a DIY advert calendar, write out a list of things for the children to do each day and pop them in the advent calendar pockets. I can recommend Timber Tinkers for DIY advent calendars. Each pocket can be filled with a special task for children to complete, which will bring joy to the lives of others. I have popped some Idas for you below.
