DEC 5: SPEND LESS
We’ll spend a little less on ourselves and use the money we saved to help others this Christmas
Christmas is about celebrating the gift of Jesus, not a big pile of presents under the tree. One of our goals this year is to spend less so we can save up money and help someone else who needs it.
The children chose the FoodBank as the place we would give the money that they all collect.
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Dear Jesus, help me to remember all the ways you have blessed me and my family. I want to have a grateful heart this Christmas. Amen.

TO DO TOGETHER
Collection Jar. Part of our Advent Conspiracy plan is spending less money on ourselves and saving some to give to others. Decorate and create a special collection jar. If you haven’t done it already you can decorate the jar that was in your KIDS bag with the stickers that are inside it.
Gratitude Chains. Cut some paper into long strips. Write or draw pictures on the paper of something you are grateful for. It could be people you love, pets, toys and books, activities, or special memories.
