Jeanette of Tiny Rotten Peanuts and I are doing a 12 Days of Shopping series. We cooked this up over a giggly Skype session with gift ideas that hopefully will help you out this holiday season. A few of our ideas are meant to amuse you as well! We hope you enjoy our series for the next 12 straight days.
Piglet noticed that although he had a very small heart, it could hold a lot of gratitude.

We are kicking it off today with Advent Calendars with a gratitude twist. When I think of gratitude, it seems to go hand in hand with acts of kindness. I think a kind act helps us appreciate what we have and those around us. My idea for a Gratitude Advent Calendar is to make a DIY Gratitude Journal and choose a Random Act of Kindness to do that day OR simply write down what you are grateful for.
My kids like Advent Calendars for the chocolate and you can add that element too by doling out a piece of chocolate for each day in which a Random Act of Kindness is completed or when you write down something you are grateful for.
