Good Deeds Manger
The good deeds manger is a Christian activity for the holidays highlighting the importance of doing a good deed daily and treating others with kindness. This family activity centers on an empty manger during the weeks before Christmas. If you do a good deed, you earn realistic looking pieces of hay to put inside the manger. On Christmas morning, because of the good deeds and selfless acts of kindness you have performed, you will have earned enough hay to find baby Jesus sleeping in his comfortable manger prepared by your daily efforts. This holiday tradition is told in the bible when Mary places baby Jesus in the manger. Your selfless acts of kindness demonstrate how rewarding it can be to follow Christ's example. Add something new and meaningful to your Christmas by introducing this nativity tradition to your family and friends. Use the good deed manger to create an interactive nativity scene that invites and encourages all to prepare for the birth of baby Jesus, especially children. The good deeds manger contains all of the items needed to begin this new Christmas tradition in your home - including an empty manger, real hay, a bag to hold the hay, a proclamation to hang on your Christmas tree and a sleeping baby Jesus. Set up this nativity and seek ways to do good in the days leading up to Christmas. On Christmas morning, your kids will run past the presents under the tree to find baby Jesus sleeping in the manger and you will know that the true meaning of Christmas is intact in your home. There is no better gift you can give your children, yourself or our lord.
