If you’re looking to do some good this Christmas season, look no further! I made a free printable Good Deeds Advent Calendar that will inspire goodwill all month long!
I’ve been thinking ahead to December and wanting to make sure my kids remember that Christmas is about more than presents. Sure, they’ll open up some shiny, sought-after goodies on Christmas morning, but I want them to cultivate a spirit of giving, not just getting!
Our Good Deeds Advent Calendar includes 24 ideas for spreading goodwill and cheer on the days leading up to Christmas. The activities include simple, thoughtful tasks as well as more involved projects. Nothing requires a lot of money. Be creative- a little can go a long way!

My mom used to sing this little tune to us, which has stayed with me many years later:
Christmas is coming; the goose is getting fat
Please put a penny in the old man’s hat
If you haven’t got a penny, a ha-penny will do
If you haven’t got a ha-penny, then God bless you!
There is someone out there who can benefit and be blessed by what you have to offer, however much it may be. And I hope that some good deeds come your way, as well! But doing good makes you feel good, so you’re set either way!
