we did something new this year for christmas, the sparkle box (http://www.thesparklebox.com/). i heard about it on kcbi and really liked the idea. basically what you do is nicely wrap a box as your present for Jesus. since we are celebrating His birthday for christmas He gets the first gift. In the box you place notes of things you did for others where you were honoring God and showing Jesus' love. we read the verses in matthew 25:35-40 where Jesus talks about what you did for the hungry, thirsty, naked, etc. you did for Him. and then we read the notes. i love how it is such a clear picture for kids of how we are giving Jesus a gift.
