Good Deed Straw

This year I am determined to have a peaceful and non-stressful Christmas season.  I have just about finished my shopping and I am gradually going to tackle the wrapping in the next week while the kids are at school.

The other night for FHE we read a little story in the Friend Magazine about how to help kids focus on the true meaning of Christmas.   I loved this idea and thought we would give it a try.  We made our own little cradle and cut out dozens of straw colored hearts.  Every time the kids do a good deed for someone, they are supposed to fill out a heart and lay it in the manger for straw.

It will be fun to see how full we get it by Christmas Day.


  1. I love the idea! One day I will have to remember this... Actually it wouldn't be a bad idea for me to just do on my own :)

  2. Great idea! I need to remember this one. Soooo, sending out Christmas cards and realize I don't have your updated address. Also, changed my e-mail address to Let me know so I can get it sent to you.
