Secret Service (Kindness Activity)...have one for each student in an envelope, maybe have each student have a specific task (e.g. talk to someone who is alone, say please and thank you, hold the door open for someone, tell your teacher thank you each day)...or have them exchange names for the holidays to perform acts of kindness (lesson about taking care of one another).
