Contains 25 kindness activities that are easy for any family to do and help children to reflect on the underlying meaning of the Christmas season
Includes 25 fun, reusable stickers that your child can add to the festive, frozen lake scene in the centre to create their own Christmas ice-skating winter wonderland
Plus, 25 fun "scratchies" each reveal a positive affirmation or self-confidence booster
If you're looking for a kid's Christmas advent calendar that's not only sugar-free but is also all about the love and gratitude we all want to feel at Christmastime, we've got the answer for you! The beautifully designed Sharing Kindness New York Advent Calendar is an absolute delight.
Open each numbered window in the New York City apartment building to reveal an easy-to-achieve act of kindness prompt, each one accompanied by a confidence- and resilience-building affirmation. Examples from behind some of the windows are:
"The way you talk to yourself matters. Say something kind to yourself in the mirror."
"Be the change. Grab some coloured pens and make a poster saying 'KINDNESS MAKES YOU HAPPY'."
"Love is in the air. Offer a friend or a loved one a hug today. Notice how it makes you feel inside."
Each door also hides a repositionable sticker that your child can then play with on the wintery scene found next to the apartment building to create a beautiful NY City ice-skating scene. Meet Sienna the Bunny, Scarlett the Fox, and their other friends and help them play on the ice, give each other gifts, and more.
On the reverse of the calendar, your child will find 25 numbered "scratchies", each one revealing a positive affirmation for your child to repeat to themselves and the family. Examples include "My friends are important" and "I really sparkle".
An envelope on the back will safely hold your kindness prompts so you can return again and again to read and action them throughout the year.
