    Shepherds pouches, read it! Teaching children to serve during the holiday season

  • Anjoli Rowe

    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...

  • Anastasia Rairigh

    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

Awesome Christmas crafts on this blogger's site! She also has an Etsy store if you just want to buy.

From Dec. 1 to Dec. 24th each time you spot your child serving others you put coins or dollar bills in their pouch. On Dec. 24th you count the money and allow them to choose an item from the Compassion's gift catalog to give to someone in need.
