Have you printed your kindness calendar yet this year? This printable is perfect adults and kids during Christmas time or any other season of the year.
Have you heard of a kindness calendar or used one in the past? Well we created one for any season but decorated it for the Christmas season. It is not specific to any year so you can print it and use it any time you wish. It is a great way to teach appreciation for others at any age, maybe you want to participate yourself as an adult.

Kindness Calendar for Kids
There’s no age limit when it comes to being kind to others, and yourself. I have created lots of free printable monthly calendar pages as well as a monthly calendar over the years. I am someone who likes to write things down and see it on paper.
- This calendar is a bit different in that there is a task or focus each day for the entire month, and the thought is geared toward thinking of others.
Sometimes in the rush of the holiday season, or any other time of year, we lose touch with those who are less fortunate than us or we haven’t spoken to in a while. A random acts of kindness calendar is fun to start. Thanksgiving is a great time to do this kindness calendar as well!
Each day has something simple written down, of course you can interpret it however you like or swap days. If every day is too much then print it out and maybe look at it together with your kids and have each person circle 10 things on the calendar they want to do, then check it off when it’s done.
