The Kindness Elves Christmas Tradition + Giveaway

“Sprinkle Kindness wherever you go”  ~The Kindness Elves

Tis the Season! and the kids have been busy coming up with their wish lists for Christmas.  On their lists are the typical “wants” like a Nintendo Switch and L.O.L Surprise Dolls, “needs” like clothes and good books, and things like “something for my brother” or “something for my sister,” that warms our hearts & puts a smile on our faces.

As our family prepares for the Christmas Season, we have decided to come up with a new tradition…A Kindness List, with the purpose of teaching the kids to focus not only on themselves but on other people as well.  To help inspire us along the way, we will be using The Kindness Elves!

The Kindness Elves was started in 2013 by Mom Anna of The Imagination Tree.  The elves encourage kids to carry out acts of kindness to friends, family, neighbors…just about anyone!  Earlier this year, I bought the Kindness Elves Set and Storybook (because story time is a favorite around here).  I still can’t get over how cute the little elves are and with many options to choose from, you can be sure to find the right ones.  Isn’t their elf house adorable?  It has a working mail box for sending and receiving Elf Mail.

Just recently, we received the Kindness Elves Accessories Pack, that includes 50 wonderful Acts of Kindness cards, a Little Book of Big Kindnesses memory book, postcards, stickers and a bottle of magic sprinkles.  This is such a fun tool to have and I cannot wait to get started with these.  You can also find a Family Bundle Pack and a Classroom Bundle Pack on the Kindness Elves website.

I’m looking forward to sharing our Kindness List with you in the weeks to come.  To get things started, this is our first act of kindness this month.  Rebekah decided to draw a thank you picture for our school crossing guard and we gave it to him this morning.  He was so sweet and said, “I’m going to keep this forever.”  🙂

    My favorite Christmas tradition is decorating our Christmas tree. I buy one or two Hallmark keepsake ornaments a year that reflect something important that happened during the past year. I love taking these ornaments out of the box and reflecting on these memories. I can’t wait until B is older to share these stories with him.

    What a fun idea for kids! A favorite tradition is opening presents one person at a time around the room so we can see what everyone gets and their expression when they are surprised. Giving is so fun.

    Our Christmas tradition is going to my sister’s house on Christmas eve and having dinner with the whole extended family.

    I love our tradition of getting our tree the day after thanksgiving. This year my boys had a blast decorating the tree and looking at all of the ornament. Everyone gets atleast one ornament a year. I also love going to my mother’s house for our Christmas celebration (Christmas eve night). This year I’m sponsoring 85 residence, at the home that my step father in law spent his last couple months. I hope this will become a yearly tradition.

    My favorite tradition is an ornament exchange we do at my moms house. It’s a lot of fun and we’re always guaranteed a ton of laughs! The adults do this exchange but the kids enjoy watching. For my kids, I enjoy the tradition of doing advent calendars! My kids always look forward to it on December 1st and never forget to open a little door each day!

    The only thing I look forward to every year since having children is seeing their eyes light up when they see gifts under the tree Christmas morning. There doesn’t have to be a lot. They don’t have to be big. Just pure joy seeing something under the tree.
