Advent Chain Ideas
Each year we set up an Advent Chain to count the days until baby Jesus' birthday. I follow Catholicmom.com 's suggestions and make a few tweaks to fit our family. If the activity corresponds with Catholicmom I have included the date in the description

Shepherds pouches « hang from the 1st-24th of December to remind kids the focus is not on themselves. You focus on serving others, showing kindness, etc. then, make a goal of what to give to someone in need (compassion, shoebox, etc), and they put money in their pouches every day and see how much they "raise" to gift to someone in need. LOVE THIS! Replace with full stocking on Christmas morning.

Shepherds pouches, read it! Teaching children to serve during the holiday season
Instead of hanging stocking on the mantel all month long, the Paquette family first hangs shepherds pouches. From the the 1st to the 24th they hang shepherds pouches. This fun tradition of service and remember Jesus during the Christmas season is one that you will want to replicate in your own home. I will be doing this next year...love! [Anjoli: I would have the kids write down what they can give to the king. One each day. And put it in their pouch.]
Christ centered Christmas ideas for kids. Instead of stockings, hang up small, unadorned pouches. During December, when your children help someone, do chores, are kind, etc. place money in the pouches. On Christmas Eve, take the money from the pouches and use it to buy a gift from Compassion’s gift catalog or give it to someone in need.
Love this Christmas tradition to do with kids and as a family, to keep the focus of the season on what it should be - HIM!
Shepherds' Pouches | a Christmas tradition to help children absorb the true reason for the season...
shepherds pouches -- to celebrate Jesus birth-- how do we give gifts to the King? "Inasmuch as you have done it to the least..." Everytime parents saw kids serving being kind etc, they would put money in the pouch. On Christmas Eve, the kids got to pick a gift from the compassion catalog for a family in need-- teaches giving, motivates kids to want to serve, reminds them of Christ came to serve | the paquettes
