Building a manger for Jesus

I love a good idea! This one is too good to keep to myself. I subscribe to Tip Junkie and she's been doing a series called "Christmas in July". She linked to an idea found on this site, Tennesse Farmgirl. Go there for pics and details but basically you draw names within your family. You keep the names a secret and show acts of kindness for a week before drawing new names. Each time you do something nice, you add a piece of straw to a mini manger. You need to make it soft for Jesus! Then on Christmas, the family searches for baby Jesus to lay in the manger. Person who finds him get the honor. How cute is that. Def wanna remember this one for when my kinds are a little older.
