The Giving Manger , A Family Tradition of Kindness

Start a Family Tradition of Kindness with The Giving Manger

Winston Churchill said it himself that “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life out of what we give.” This is something I want to remember and also instill in my children not just around the holidays but year round.

Starting this year and hopefully, from here on out, we are starting a new tradition with “The Giving Manger” to purposefully seek out opportunities to give and do other good deeds throughout the month of December. Of course, it’s the task we are aiming to have it become a habit so we’ll be reminded to look for those opportunities and seek to help others year round.

Celebrate the Advent Season with “The Christmas Star From Afar”

 

I never jumped on the Elf of the Shelf train though fully aware of what it is.  I thought it was a fun idea to count down the days until Christmas morning but we don’t teach that Santa will be arriving. My kids haven’t ever believed in Santa Claus though they know he is based upon a real man and still enjoy the fictional stories about him.

The Christmas Star From Afar” is a unique way to teach & remind children about the true meaning of Christmas year after year! This game is designed to be used daily from December 1st to December 25th. It is a 16 piece set that comes with a hardcover book and full wooden nativity set.
