Your Manger at Home

A simple but very beautiful Advent custom comes from France where children prepare a manger bed for the Christ Child. 

Throughout Advent, for every act of kindness and every sacrificial act, a child places a piece of straw in the manger, so that the infant Jesus will have a soft, warm bed to sleep in on Christmas.

A good time of day for this would be just before the child says his or her prayers at bedtime in order to draw a connection between praying and doing. The empty manger could be set up in a prominent place in your home, with a small supply of straw nearby. The children could add straw as they share the things they have done that day to be kind to others and help those in need. A variation on actual pieces of straw might be to cut up small strips of beige colored paper to serve as the straw, and a child who is old enough could write on the paper how they acted in a Christ-like manner during the day.
