Dec. 1 – First Week – Monday

template for Advent calendar5Kids’ Activity for the Day (but it’s not just for kids):

One of the things we do to help us prepare for the coming of Jesus Christ is to do good deeds for others. Creating an Advent Tree of Kindness may help our own attitude toward serving others rather than ourselves. Doing something good every single day is often very easy to do. All you need is a small effort to make someone else happy. There is happiness in the giving! This season is a reminder to take a chance to make someone’s life a little bit better. Try doing something small every single day.
