We think you will like our Kindful Christmas Advent Tree - an alternative advent calendar , an advent with a difference and with a Scamp positivity twist. The difference being it's all about giving and not receiving. This is an advent for little and bigger kids to participate in. Encouraging thoughtful and kind acts in the lead up to Christmas in a chocolate free zone!
During September we hosted an instagram challenge #positivelyinspiring15 where we had such a lovely reaction (both with images and words) to all our prompts. The prompts each fell into themes of kindness, positivity and thougthfulness. We know people felt good about being involved in this and we thought it was perfect to take forward something with a similar ethos to the festive season.
Christmas should be as much about loving to give (and not just receive) which is why we’ve chosen to celebrate with our Kindful Advent Christmas Tree. Our 'advent gifts' are suggestions of diverse activities and Random Acts of Kindness for your children to get involved. We want them to think about and help others and to make people smile when they do 😊 .
From feeding the birds, to telling someone you love them, sharing a toy with a friend or writing a thank you note - there are 24 suggestions for little ones (up to around aged 6) and then another 24 on the flip side of our advent sheet for bigger ones - none of them too hard or demanding to do - just thoughtful .
To go alongside the activities we have a lovely wooden Scandinavian minimalist style tree with 25 pegs (all designed and made in Yorkshire). There will be 24 individually numbered acrylic baubles that will be placed on the tree each day and the top of the tree will have a star that can be personalised with the names of those taking part!
