Inspire the spirit of giving in your little ones and their classmates with a Secret Angel Exchange. Similar to Secret Santa, Secret Angel gift exchanges offer a super fun way to practice generosity by giving to others—without them knowing it was you!
To get your Secret Angel Exchange started, just download, print, and cut out Elfster’s Angel Exchange cards. Next, have each little one fill one out with their name, their favorite color, and their favorite things. Then put all the cards in a hat so that each student can anonymously pick one out to determine who they’re going to be a Secret Angel for. Once everyone has chosen a giftee, set a spending amount, or encourage the kids to get crafty and make homemade gifts.
You know how easy it is for things to get lost in little ones’ backpacks, so to make sure that all the parents are in the loop, set your exchange up online using a Secret Santa Generator that lets you send invitations by email, including all the details of the exchange. Little ones can even go online with their parents to create wish lists to help their Secret Angel get them the perfect individualized gift!
On the day of the exchange, the little munchkins can all exchange their gifts and watch as their classmates’ faces light up with joy. Teaching kids generosity has never been so much fun! The best part? It can be done year round. No special occasion required! Just don’t forget to encourage the little ones to say thank you to their Secret Angels. After all, generosity goes hand-in-hand with gratitude.
At Elfster, we love to inspire the spirit of giving in people of all ages—especially little ones! To find the perfect gift for your little one’s Secret Angel Exchange, check out our For Kids Gift Guide.
Sharing is caring—and the Elfster elves love to do both! Feel free to print and distribute our downloadable printables in your home, classroom, or business—as long as you don’t get too creative and alter our original designs. Happy crafting from your friends at Elfster!
