It’s that time of year again. You may recall, last year our family attempted the Random Acts of Kindness project (above) throughout the month of December and while a little young, the kids took complete ownership of the daily activities and were able to pull some fun lessons from it all the while. Each day, they pulled a new card from a numbered envelope with a new kind act or happy thought. Some days we went door to door and others we called a family member on the phone. This year, the goal is to brighten someone’s day every day from now until December 25th, whether it be bringing the local fire fighters a box of goodies or saying a prayer for someone you know. I contemplated putting it off until next year since Johnny is now in full day school, but when I saw December 1 on the calendar today, something told me to press forward so here we go. I’ll blog once a week about our little journey!
Day 1: Set up the Nativity Scene at home.
One day, I would love a beautiful nativity scene for the house but right now, this is our version of beautiful. Little People for little hands to interactively learn just what this season is all about.
