Put lid on shoebox or close cracker box and place slit opening on top. Have each child wrap box and secure with tape (younger children will need help) or decorate box with materials of childs choosing. Adult should cut slit in top of box after wrapped and decorated.
Explain to children that this is the box for Jesus's birthday gift. Each time they do something that Jesus would like, ask them to write it on a slip of paper or have an adult write it out (ex- sharing a favorite toy with a sibling, helping Mom...
etc). Tell them that this box should be opened 1st on Christmas morning and that all of the wonderful things that they did for Jesus should be read.
