December is almost here . . . are you ready? I know I’m enjoying this extra week between Thanksgiving and the reality of December and all it’s craziness. I’m using it to finish wrapping gifts and addressing cards, but it’s also time to get organized for our Random Acts of Christmas Kindness project. It was a huge blessing to the kids and me last year!
Last year, the school calendar gave us more than a week between the end of the school semester and Christmas day. That was the time when we did most of our RACK projects. This year will be a little more complicated, with the last day of school falling on December 20.
So this year’s Acts of Kindness will be a little less Random and a little more Planned. I’ve got my list of RACK ideas and my December calendar, and I’m going to try to map out a few ideas for each week. On my list, I’ve got one set of projects that we can do as we go places we already go . . . the bank, the grocery store, restaurants, etc. There’s another set of ideas that will require a little extra planning or an extra trip somewhere.
And because it’s fun, but just not practical, to hand out money all over town, I’ve starred some ideas on the list that can be accomplished for less than $10. Print out some cards and buy some candy canes, and you’re ready to spread Christmas joy with very little money required!
If you need some inspiration, check out my list of RACK ideas below or click on the link to download a PDF. And here’s a PDF of the cards I print out, mount on card stock, and hand out along the way. Leave me a comment and let me know what RACK you are planning for this December!
