I know this is old news to lots of you, but we used our Christmas In A Can for our FHE last night and it was a wonderful experience so I wanted to put it out there to hopefully enrich other families. My dear friend Jen shared this wonderful idea with me and we made these kits as part of our November enrichment meeting and included the story as part of a family home evening lesson. The entire lesson can be found here. Basically, it is the story about Santa sharing the symbols of Christmas and how they each are reminders of Christ. We used a quart-sized paint can to hold our little objects and a folded FHE lesson sheet, decorated the outside and voila.
Part of the lesson encouraged the members of our family to look for the symbols of Christmas in the world around them and remember how these things can remind us of Christ. This morning on the way to school, Sam saw a wreath and shared it's meaning.
