Random Acts of Christmas Kindness & Stocking Stuffer Craft Activity
This is a fun Christmas craft and project idea for any classroom!
During the month of December I encourage my students to practice random acts of kindness not only in the classroom, but also outside of school. I give them the 25 Random Acts of Christmas Kindness calendar. I have students keep the calendar in their 3-ring binder that goes back and forth from home to school with them each day. Most acts of kindness on my calendar can be accomplished without an adult, so I don’t allow any excuses for not trying! I have students place a red X over each day they performed that particular act of kindness. During the month we have a contest to see who can get them most red X’s on their calendar. When we come back to school in January, we share our calendars. Those students with the most red X’s win a prize (usually a trip to the treasure box or their choice of 2 classroom coupons). Most students really get excited about this project! They compete against each other to win - while at the same time learning a valuable character lesson in “kindness.” I also teach a kindness lesson from my Character Education in the Classroom unit. It can be found at the link below.
