The Giving Manger will help your family understand the tradition and get little ones excited about participating. Once you have read the picture book story, place the empty manger in a prominent spot in your home. In the days leading up to Christmas, family members can place a piece of straw in the manger each time they perform a kind deed or act of service. Filling the manger will become a fun, interactive project for your family, prompting even young children to look for ways to love and serve others.
As your family works together to fill the manger with straw, your hearts and home will fill with the joy and contentment that comes not from wish lists and getting, but from giving and loving others. On Christmas Day, your family can place the Baby Jesus in the manger–now full of the straw that represents the acts of love and service done in honor of Jesus’ birth.
Each Box Set Includes:
- The Giving Manger Picture Book: a heartwarming story with beautiful cut-paper illustrations that presents the tradition and will get kids excited about participating
- Wooden Manger: to be placed in a visible spot in the home, waiting to be filled
- Bundle of Straw: pieces of straw to be placed in the manger after each act of service
