Ideas to Teach Your Children the Joy in Giving

 Pin It

With all of the gifts that children receive during this season, it is no wonder that children develop a gimme attitude.  To combat this problem, involve your children in creating gifts for others.  Here are a few of our favorites!

Create a Handprint and Footprint Calendar.  This is a simple gift but is dearly loved by grandparents and others. Each month contains a sample idea and verse. 

Applesauce Cinnamon Ornaments are one of our favorite gifts to give.  They smell so good and are simple enough for the kiddos to do. 

Attach this Gospel sharing poem to candy canes.  Share with family members, friends, or neighbors.
