We loved My Kindness Advent Calendar for so many reasons. It keeps the communication open about acts of kindness and putting out into the universe and community more love and kindness. It also takes the focus off the candy in traditional calendars and puts the focus on the fun of the countdown. We love the kindness calendar and look forward to next year!
As a busy mama of six children, I do everything I can to promote a peaceful household full of kind and community minded small humans. I was so happy when I found this twist on the traditional Advent calendar! I find it engaging and creates meaningful conversations among the children. This product is so refreshing at a time of year when so many kids are focusing on what they want!
It’s been a good reminder of how small actions throughout the day can have such a big impact. It doesn’t have to be complicated. And it’s a bit contagious. I have changed directions and embraced a kinder alternative several times the past few days. With others and with myself.
