Baby Jesus’ Manger

by Josée

Baby Jesus’ manger is another Advent activity that can help your family prepare for the celebration of Jesus’ birth.

For this activity gather:

  • something that can act as a manger like a shoe box or basket
  • some straw or pieces of yellow yarn
  • a baby doll

As Advent unfolds, encourage your family to do good deeds for one another and for others in your community. Each time someone does a good deed they receive a piece of straw to place into Jesus’ manger. By Christmas Jesus should have a a nicely padded manger to be placed into.
