100 Acts of Kindness for Kids

Have you ever wondered how Santa delivers all his presents in one night? He uses Christmas magic made from Christmas cheer, of course!

Each time a child does a kind deed, they create a little Christmas cheer which helps Santa do his job. Be sure to keep a lookout for his Elf Pets® Saint Bernard pups too who collect all of the Christmas cheer you create!

How many kind deeds do you think your family can complete this year?
