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.
